The 19th match of the Emirates D10 League 2020 in Dubai is all set to be played between Fujairah Pacific Ventures and Team Abu Dhabi at the ICC Academy Cricket Ground.
This match is scheduled to start at 8:00 PM Local Time (9:30 PM IST) (4:00 PM GMT) and can be live-streamed on FanCode.
Team Abu Dhabi hasn’t had a great time so far in this tournament and are rooted at the bottom of the table with just one win in 6 games. On the other hand, Fujairah Pacific Ventures made a strong comeback in the last game against Ajman Alubond, by defeating them with 9 wickets.
However, this should be an interesting contest as both the teams will look forward to grabbing the two precious points to get closer to their counterpart.
There is no chance of rain on Thursday with the temperature expected to hover around 36 Degrees Celsius.
A high-scoring pitch where the batsmen are expected to dominate the bowlers once again in the upcoming encounter and spinners might get some help off the turf in the middle overs. As the trend continues, captain winning the toss will choose to bowl first and anything above 100 will be a competitive score for both teams.
Average 1st innings score: 108 (Last 5 matches)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 4; Lost – 1
