Probable Best Performers from GUL vs EMI

Probable best batter: Kieron Pollard

Pollard had a sensational outing against Dubai Capitals recently as he scored a blistering knock of 86 from mere 38 deliveries. Though his knock went in vain, it just goes to show that the explosive batter still has his aggressiveness left in him despite his age. Pollard could once again prove to be vital for the side against Gulf Giants in the forthcoming clash.

Probable best bowler: Trent Boult

Pacer Trent Boult, who has established himself as a lethal pacer in world cricket, can hand his side the vital breakthroughs. He could get the early movement with the ball which could work wonders for his side and he would look to use that ability with the new ball once again.
