Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The T10 League 2019 is expected to be a treat for all the cricket fans who are anticipating exciting cricket. Humongous sixes and exciting death-overs bowling will be a vital part of the fast-paced league. The only Bangladesh-based franchise in the league- Bangla Tigers, will be led by all-rounder Thisara Perera. Perera, who has proved his calibre in international cricket in both the departments, will be hoping to lead his team from the front.

He will be assisted by the South Africa duo of Colin Ingram and Rilee Rossouw, who will add depth to their batting force. James Faulkner will also bolster Tigers’ with his all-round abilities. Deccan Gladiators will be led by Shane Watson, who will strengthen their bowling as well as batting forte with his all-round abilities. He was expected to be joined by another world-class all-rounder Kieron Pollard.

However, the Gladiators will miss Pollard’s services who is currently leading West Indies in the three-match T20I series against Afghanistan. Gladiators have also acquired Sheldon Cottrell to strengthen their bowling line-up. The T10 League will miss the services of Afghanistan and West Indies players.

Weather Condition/Report:

The weather forecast is great for Saturday for a perfect game of cricket as no rain expected to intervene. There will be ample sunlight throughout the day and the temperature will hover around 29 degrees Celcius, according to AccuWeather.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The wicket is expected to fare well for the batsmen. The ground has witnessed many centuries in the past and the batsmen will be hoping to make the most of the conditions. The pitch is a bit on the slower side and seamers will have to work a bit more to make an impact in the game. Massive total is on the cards.

Average first innings score:  NA

Record of chasing teams: NA

Injury and Availability News:

Pakistan players are not going to be a part of the league after PCB revoked NOCs.
