Pitch Report

The dimensions of the ground are generally humongous, but the boundaries are expected to be shortened, bearing in mind the entertainment factor. A few games of the T20 World Cup Qualifiers took place here and batting was rather tough. But the pitches are likely to be more batting friendly.

Weather Report

There are no chances of rain with the temperature starting at around the 28 degrees Celsius mark and coming down to 24 degrees Celsius. The humidity will mostly be in the 40s. Overall, the atmosphere won’t be a taxing one for playing cricket. There won’t be much cloud either.

Maratha Arabians vs Northern Warriors, Match 1, Group B

Maratha Arabians

The Arabians have a power-packed batting. Lynn and Lyth cane tear any bowling apart. Chadwick Walton and Yuvraj Singh are reliable figures in the middle order. The likes of Dasun Shanaka, James Fuller and Wanindu Hasaranga are no mugs with the bat in hand. Fuller and Hasaranga will also be needed with the leather. Veterans Lasith Malinga and Mitchell McClenaghan are the fast bowlers.

Probable XI

Chris Lynn, Adam Lyth, Chadwick Walton (wk), Yuvraj Singh (C), Dwayne Bravo, Dasun Shanaka, James Fuller, Wanindu Hasaranga, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Mohammed Qasim/Nasir Aziz

Northern Warriors

The Warriors have an explosive batting unit. The likes of George Munsey, Sam Billings and Andre Russell can up the scoring rate any time. Even Chris Green and Rayad Emrit can wield the willow. Green and Emrit will also hold the key in the bowling unit. Tambe had an excellent outing last season and he will be looking to replicate something similar. Sammy’s leadership will be crucial as well.

Probable XI

George Munsey, Sikandar Raza, Sam Billings (wk), Andre Russell, Darren Sammy (C), Asela Gunaratne, Chris Green, Rayad Emrit, Nuwan Pradeep, Pravin Tambe, Amir Hayat

Deccan Gladiators vs Delhi Bulls, Match 2, Group A

Deccan Gladiators

The Gladiators will be led by Shane Watson, who is also likely to share the opening stand with Mohammad Shahzad. Anton Devcich, Bhanuka Rajapaksha and Ben Cutting form a power-packed middle order. Even Dan Lawrence can hit the ball a fair distance. Fawad Ahmed and Zahir Khan will be the key, being the wrist spinners. Cutting and Zahoor Khan are the pacers with Pretorius.

Probable XI

Shane Watson (C), Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Anton Devcich, Bhanuka Rajapaksha, Ben Cutting, Dan Lawrence, Asif Khan, Fawad Ahmed, Zahir Khan, Zahoor Khan, Migael Pretorius

Delhi Bulls

Tobias Visee, Paul Stirling and Kusal Perera form a pretty formidable top order. Skipper Eoin Morgan and Angelo Mathews can be absolutely devastating when in full flow. David Willey and Muhammad Usman add depth to their batting. Dushmantha Chameera, Ali Khan and Zaheer Khan are most likely to shoulder the pace bowling department. Adil Rashid is the spin bowling option.

Qalandars vs Team Abu Dhabi, Match 3, Group B

Qalandars

Luke Ronchi and Tom Banton should be opening the batting for the Qalandars. Imran Nazir and Sohail Akhtar are two batters, who can go hammer and tongs. Phil Salt and Laurie Evans have experience on their shoulders. Shahid Afridi, their skipper, will need to step up, both with bat and ball. Chris Jordan has put forth all round shows off late and a lot will depend on the Barbados-born.

Richard Gleeson, Harry Gurney and Ben Laughlin have the potential to pick regular wickets.
