Hyderabad and Bangalore will lock horns with each other in the Eliminator of the league after finishing the league stages, positioned in 3rd and 4th place respectively in the points table. This crucial match relevance for both teams, as the winner, will play the 2nd Qualifier, while the one who loses the match will be knocked out of the competition.
Hyderabad will be riding high on trust as they managed to beat the table toppers, Mumbai by a whopping 10-wicket margin, heading into this match. But in this area, Virat Kohli’s men would be absent as they suffered a loss in their last league stage match and were only able to make it into the playoffs because of their net run rate.
Little by little, the temperature cools down. During the match time, it is estimated to be about 29 degrees Celsius and a decrease to 27 degrees Celsius before the end in Abu Dhabi. In the late stage of the game, the mist factor could come into play.
The Abu Dhabi pitch was relatively balanced and favoured both the batsmen and the bowlers. It will be easier for batsmen that have settled in to play their strokes. In restricting the run flow, the middle overs bowling from the spinners will be crucial.
