So far in the Emirates D20 2020, the two teams that will lock horns in today’s last game have had very uninteresting seasons. Just 3 of their 7 games have been won by Dubai. They should be grateful to the bottom two for being incredibly low, which has allowed Dubai to hold to the fourth position somehow.
If their situation is troubling, their opposition to Abu Dhabi has been appalling this season. They failed to win every game they played and lost five of their games. If they win all of their remaining matches, they still have a very minimal chance of making it to the semis.
Dubai’s weather is going to be perfect for cricket. It will have a pleasant temperature of 23 °C, while the chances of rain are zero.
In the last few games, the ICC Academy ground in Dubai has provided some excellent batting surfaces. The team batting first has posted over 150 in each of the previous seven completed games.
Another good track to bat on is likely to be in store for this game. There could be a par score of about 160-165.
