25th Match: DC vs DV



The 25th Game of the International T20 League will be played in Dubai International Cricket Stadium between DC and DV on Thursday, 2nd February 2023, at 07:30 PM IST. Both teams have played eight matches yet, resulting in DV sitting on the top of the table with 12 points (6 wins, 2 losses), while DC is standing in the 5th position with 7 points (3 wins, 4 losses, 1 NR). It is a must-win game for DC as they keep their hopes alive in the tournament by defeating ADKR in the last game. Meanwhile, the Vipers are in good form and placed themselves in the clinch of the table by defeating SW in their previous match.

The DC side batters ultimately got their batting form and delivered valuable runs for the team in a crucial game. Finally, DC can take sweet revenge for their 12-run defeat, which they got against DV in their last meeting. George Munsey and Niroshan Dickwella will get some confidence after scoring quick runs in the previous game. Yusuf Pathan, Chamika Karunaratne, and Hazrat Luqman will add some big-hitting finishes in the lower order for DC.

The bowling department of the DC will have to put in some high effort against the table toppers. Fred Klassen amazed everyone with his economic spell and got valuable assistance from Hazrat Luqman. In the middle overs, Adam Zampa and Sikandar Raza, along with Chamika Karunaratne, will try to put some pressure on the opposition.

DV recovered from the MIE’s 157-run backlash and won the last game against SW by 22 runs. Alex Hales is in excellent form, with 400+ runs in the league. Sam Billings and Munro, who excel in the middle order, will try to add runs quickly.

Given that their opponents are skilled with the bat at the top, Sheldon Cottrell and Gus Atkinson need to get started quickly. Alongside Luke Wood, Hasaranga plays a crucial role in the middle overs and has liked bowling in these circumstances. Benny Howell and Shiraz Ahmed are also expected to have solid stretches for the team.


Match Details

Match: DC vs DV, 25th Match, International T20 League

Date: Thursday, February 2, 2023

Time: 7:30 PM

Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai


Pitch & Weather Report

Dubai International Cricket Stadium is one of the world's best surfaces to bat on, as the ball comes nicely on the bat. However, it is an evening game, meaning the side that wins the toss wants to chase the target due to the dew factor. Moreover, it is a sharp-turn venue, which means spinners are preferable over pacers.

Calling for weather, the highest and the lowest temperature would be between 14℃ and 18℃ with a wind speed of 14 km/h in the northeast direction.

Match Prediction

The recent game saw DC perform well. Their batters must accumulate runs and provide a respectable sum for the bowlers. It will be complex against a team that has annihilated opponents. This year, the Vipers have been the team to beat. They are the favorites to win this game since their batters and bowlers are in terrific shape. We fancy that this will be DV’s game to win.
