Sharjah Warriors will host Dubai Capitals in the 17th match of the inaugural edition of the International League T20. Both teams are coming on the back of a win. While Moeen Ali-led Warriors beat Gulf Giants in their last game, Dubai Capitals outshone MI Emirates in a high-scoring thriller. Also, both Sharjah and Dubai have won two out of the five games played. Thus, it is expected to be a thrilling contest here on Thursday.
The two teams have already met once. Moeen Ali’s Sharjah Warriors had defeated Rovman Powell’s Dubai Capitals by seven wickets in their last meeting. Tom Kohler-Cadmore was the hero for the Warriors as the England batter scored a terrific century. Meanwhile, Rovman Powell and Joe Root have been among the runs for the Capitals in the past few games.
With both teams boasting world-class players in the lineup, it is expected to be another thrilling game of cricket. The shorter boundaries of Sharjah Cricket Stadium will only add spice to the contest.
Sharjah's pitch is known to slow down as the game progresses. So, chasing becomes a difficult task. But the shorter boundaries will keep the batters in the game.
