Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Karnataka Tuskers and Deccan Gladiators go head to head in the first game on what promises to be an action-packed Monday. Deccan Gladiators has won one and lost one game with their captain, Shane Watson in supreme form for them.

On the other hand, Karnataka Tuskers began their campaign with an astounding win over Delhi Bulls. In spite of being put to bat, the Tuskers batting stood out with an imperative performance. With the nature of the T10 format being highly volatile, both sides have an equal chance of winning the game in Abu Dhabi.

Weather Condition/Report:

The temperature which is predicted to be around 30 Degrees Celsius with humidity being 44%, at the start of the match, according to AccuWeather. However, that shouldn’t really make much of a difference with there being absolutely no chance of rain here.

Pitch Condition/Report:

As seen in the previous games, the pitch does offer some help for the spinners although it is a good batting track by nature. The dimensions of the boundaries are relatively larger with 100 being a must due to the format and talent available on both sides. Chasing has been the norm so far and shouldn’t change in the coming days as well.

Average first innings score:  104 (First six matches in T10 League 2019)

Expert Advice:

The T10 format demands the batting picks to face the most number of balls to make an impact. Top-order batsmen such as Johnson Charles and Bhanuka Rajapaksa are more than capable of making an impact in this game.

Death bowlers are handy to have in the side with Pat Brown and Nathan Rimmington picking five wickets between them in their first game against Delhi Bulls. Available for reasonable credits, they should pick a wicket at least in the back end of the innings.

Karnataka Tuskers are favourites to win this match.
