Pitch Report

The surface at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium has always benefitted the batters and the bowlers have found it extremely difficult to make an impact at this venue. The batting is very friendly here as the batters are easily able to clear the short boundaries by taking the bowlers to the cleaners at regular intervals. Therefore, the captain winning the toss will prefer to bowl first.

Probable Playing XIs for SJH vs DUB

Sharjah Warriors (SJH):

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali (c), Joe Denly, Mohammad Nabi, Noor Ahmad, Chris Woakes, Muhammad Jawadullah, Junaid Siddique, Naveen-ul-Haq

Probable Best Performers from SJH vs DUB

Probable best batter: Joe Denly

Joe Denly was the star of the bat for the Sharjah Warriors in their last game against the Gulf Giants where he made an impact with a match-winning half-century. Denly stood out with the bat for his side scoring a 43-ball 58 at an outstanding strike rate of 134.88. He would yet again be expected to showcase an extraordinary performance as the Warriors look to register a third straight win under their belt.

 Probable best bowler: Naveen-ul-Haq

Naveen-ul-Haq looked unstoppable in Sharjah Warriors’ previous encounter against the Gulf Giants where his fifer played a decisive role in his side successfully defending a modest total of 151. The emerging Afghan cricketer finished with figures of 5/38 from his 3.4 overs and was deservingly adjudged the Player of the Match award.
