Desert Riders and Flying Oryx will clash off in the 3rd place play-off after the semi-finals were abandoned without a toss. Desert Riders finished 3rd in the points table as they won three matches which include a victory against the table-toppers Swift Gallopers. They lost only to Falcon Hunters while the match against Pearl Gladiators ended without a result. On the other hand, Flying Oryx won the tournament opener against the Gladiators. However, they lost three of their next four matches played including a washout against Heat Stormers.
The West End Park Stadium in Doha could be under showers on Monday but everything is expected to get cleared before the evening match.
For the knockouts, we are likely to have a fresh pitch used. Since there was rain on Sunday, the track is likely to retain a bit of moisture. The recent matches of the tournament have been a mixture of high-totals and low scores. Teams would be aiming to get 110 and more to have a chance of winning while batting first.
