Check out: SJH vs EMI, 6th Match Live Score

MI Emirates have only played one fixture and emerged victorious in the match against Sharjah in the first encounter. On the other hand, Sharjah have lost both their opening games and will now require wins in most fixtures if they are to make a spot in the last four.

Both sides look evenly balanced on paper, however, on the field the dynamics could project a different game altogether. It remains to be seen if Sharjah recover from back-to-back losses or will the Emirates display another dominant outing.

Match Details:

Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium
