Moeen Ali-led Sharjah Warriors finally registered their first win in their fourth game of the season as they beat Dubai Capitals by seven wickets. The Warriors continued their winning momentum and beat Gulf Giants in their next game. Now, they have been pitted against Dubai Capitals in what will be their sixth game of the season.
On the other hand, the Capitals ended their three-match losing streak against MI Emirates. The Rovman Powell-led team beat the Emirates by 16 runs on Sunday (22 Jan) to bring up their second win of the season. With Sharjah Warriors to face next, the Capitals will aim at another win. But it won’t be easy for them to go past Moeen Ali’s Warriors.
As the two teams gear up for the thrilling contest, let’s look at the stats-based prediction for different events in the game.
1. Toss Prediction
Rovman Powell has lost the toss in the last two games. Meanwhile, Moeen Ali has been able to get it right on one of the two instances which came against the Capitals. So, Ali is predicted to call it right at the toss on Thursday as well.
2. Win Possibility
Sharjah Warriors registered an emphatic victory (by seven wickets) over Dubai Capitals when the two teams met last time. Meanwhile, Dubai conceded 206 runs while defending 222 against MI Emirates. Capitals’ bowling has been sub-par in the tournament so far. Therefore, the Warriors are expected to emerge victorious once again.
3. Average first inning total and powerplay score
A run-fest is expected at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium with shorter boundaries. So, the predicted powerplay score is 45-50 while the first inning total can be expected to be around 160-170.
