Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The Maratha Arabians hardly ticked off any boxes in their first game against the Northern Warriors. Their batsmen didn’t seem at home and it seemed as if they failed to get the right batting order. Shot selection was poor and the bowling lacked the flare. Clearly, it isn’t the kind of start they would have hoped for.

But they have got a chance of redemption when they play on Sunday against the Qalandars. Given that they have a day’s break should keep the players fresh, unlike Qalandars who will be playing on the third consecutive day. Qalandars’ first game against Team Abu Dhabi finished in a draw after a couple of their batsmen played sluggish cricket.

Weather Report

The temperature will fall from 26C to 24C during the course of this match. These are near perfect conditions for a game of cricket and the players should enjoy their time in the middle.
