Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Kenya and Bermuda take centre-stage in Match 17 of the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 on Monday. While the Kenya side has given a good account of themselves in both of their defeats against Netherlands and Scotland, Bermuda was handed a reality check by Papua New Guinea in their first game of the tournament. Although veteran, Collins Obuya has done well with bat and ball, Kenya has failed as a whole with none of their batsmen able to go on and make a big one.
Although Bermuda will be considered outsiders for this game, they have a certain Delray Rawlins in their side. The Sussex allrounder, who is the first Bermudian to play County cricket, has the ability to change the course of a game with bat and ball. Bermuda’s fortunes depend on Delray Rawlins, who was top-scored against PNG with 25 in a timid overall display by the team. Both teams look evenly matched on paper which should result in a highly entertaining encounter on Monday.
Another typically hot day is expected in Dubai. The temperature will hover around 32-34 Degrees Celsius with the possibility of the players struggling with the heat. The humidity of 43% at the start of the game, according to AccuWeather, could also have an effect on the proceedings.
The pitch is a decent wicket to bat on with the surface slowing down as the game progresses. The trend might continue for the first few days in the competition. Expect the team winning the toss to bat first. Although the nature of the pitch would suggest spinners to do most of the damage, pacers have held their own at the venue so far.
Average first innings score: 154 (Four ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 games)
