Predicted Playing XIs for ADKR vs DV
Abu Dhabi Knight Riders :
Paul Stirling, Colin Ingram, Brandon King, Sunil Narine (c), Connor Esterhuizen (wk), Andre Russell, Akeal Hosein, Ravi Rampaul, Zawar Farid, Ali Khan, Matiullah Khan
Dederst Vipers :
Alex Hales, Colin Munro (c), Sam Billings (wk), Benny Howell, Sherfane Rutherford, Rohan Mustafa, Tom Curran, Sheldon Cottrell, Tymal Mills, Ali Naseer, Gus Atkinson
Probable best batter: Alex Hales
Alex Hales, a highly successful T20 batter, made a strong debut in the inaugural ILT20 tournament by scoring an unbeaten 83 off 52 deliveries, leading his team to a decisive win. His tall stature and long arms make him a formidable opponent for any bowling team, and he is likely looking forward to playing against the Knight Riders in the upcoming match.
Probable best bowler:Sunil Narine
Sunil Narine, an experienced West Indian all-rounder, has been a standout player on his team during a disappointing campaign thus far. He has taken three wickets and has an economy rate of slightly above six runs per over. His clever spin bowling has made him a difficult opponent for the opposing batters, who often prefer to play defensively against him rather than taking risks.
