ILT20 2023: Match 10, SW vs DC Match Preview, prediction, live stream |Where to watch MI Emirates vs Durban’s Super Giants ?
Dubai Capitals (DUB) have secured a spot in the playoffs of the inaugural ILT20 season after defeating MI Emirates (EMI) in their last league match. On February 9th, the two teams will face off once again, with the stakes significantly higher. The losing team will be eliminated from the tournament, while the winner will advance to the second qualifier on February 10th.
MI Emirates made the decision to rest their captain, Kieron Pollard, and Dwayne Bravo in their previous match, keeping them fresh for the crucial stage of the tournament. Stand-in skipper Nicholas Pooran performed well, but unfortunately, the team was unable to secure a win. Their bowlers, including the in-form Dasun Shanaka and Sikandar Raza, will be put to the test in this upcoming match. Dwayne Bravo, the team’s leading wicket-taker, will need to step up if MI Emirates wants to limit the runs from Dubai.
On the other hand, Dubai Capitals, led by Rovman Powell, are confident in registering a consecutive win over MI Emirates. Despite recent concerns over their form, playoffs bring a different level of intensity. The team has a strong player in Australian international Adam Zampa, who is in good form and could play a key role in the latter stages of the tournament. The batting unit, consisting of Raza and Shanaka, who played well in the last match, will need to step up and take on more responsibility given their experience in high-pressure matches.

The playing surface at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium has been noted for its slower pace. As a result, batters will need to take their time in the middle to adjust to the conditions. The winning captain in the coin toss may opt to bowl first, and a total of 160 or above would be considered a strong score on this wicket.

Probable Best Performers from MIE vs DC
Probable best batter:
MI Emirates captain Kieron Pollard is having an exceptional run in the tournament. The all-rounder currently holds the distinction of being the second-highest run scorer with 337 runs from eight matches. Given the potentially challenging pitch conditions, Pollard’s performance will be crucial for Emirates in the eliminator. He may need to take charge and set the tone with his own outstanding performance.
Probable best bowler:
Experienced all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is currently in top form. The 39-year-old has taken 11 wickets in seven matches thus far in the season and will aim to add to his tally as MI Emirates strive to secure their place in the second qualifier of the ILT20.
