Chennai is almost out of the race for the playoffs after being pinned at the bottom of the table. This will be the first time the team has not been able to make it into that stage since the start of the T20 Season. On the other hand, Bangalore has done very well this season and have won 7 of the 10 games they have played, and only put in the third position because of their net run-rate.
Chennai did not do well in their last few matches, and to add the fact that many team members are being ruled out of the tournament one after the other. Their back-ups are not even capable of rising to the challenge. In this Bangalore tournament, things are entirely different, where one player has been increased to the occasion in every match, leading the team to a victory. So, if all this put together, Bangalore seems to be on top and to win this match, Chennai will have to pull off something special.
There’s another hot sunny day in Dubai. The temperature at the starting time will be about 34 degrees Celsius. During the game, it will drop to 31 degrees Celsius.
Dubai’s pitch has begun to slow down a little, but it’s still a good wicket to bat on. It is possible to find any score around the 160 marks as a successful score and the team batting first will look to accomplish that. Due to the afternoon sun, the team that wins the toss will be looking to bat first.
