29th Match: DC vs MIE



The 29th match of the International T20 League will occur between DC and MIE on Sunday, 5th February 2023, at 07:30 PM IST in Dubai International Cricket Stadium. MIE is already qualified with 11 points in 9 matches (5 wins, 3 losses, and one NR), whereas DC will put his head to toe in this game to increase their qualification chances. DC’s qualification scenarios entirely depend on SW. It will be done and dusted for them if SW wins both games. 

DC's last match was a defeat against the DV because they could not reach the challenging 183-run mark. Sikander Raza (41 runs), Robin Uthappa (30 runs), and Rovman Powell (32 runs) all had strong cameos, but they all needed help to build on their promising starts to help their teams win. Dasun Shanaka and George Munsey are also in good form and have lately had some solid hits.

With three wickets, Fred Klassen was the most effective bowler in the last game. Although Yusuf Pathan, Chamika Karunaratne, and Adam Zampa each contributed with a wicket, Zampa was their team's lone effective bowler yesterday night.

MIE, in their most recent game, scored a substantial 180 runs. Muhammad Waseem batted with good touch and scored 60 runs, with substantial assistance from Andre Fletcher (22) and Lorcan Tucker (33) at the other end. When the ADKR's innings were about to conclude with a flourish, captain Kieron Pollard took on the opposition with 43 runs off only 17 balls.

To win by 18 runs, their bowlers held the opponents to only 162-10 in 19.2 overs. Imran Tahir (2/20), DJ Bravo (3/37), and Zahoor Khan (2/33) frequently grabbed wickets and never gave the hitters any momentum. Trent Boult, Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Dan Mousey contributed with one wicket apiece in the previous game.

This game will be the most crucial for DC as they need to win it at any cost. Still, they depend on the SW, as they lose both their upcoming games.


Match Details

Date: Sunday, 05 February 2023

Time: 7:30 PM

Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai


Pitch & Weather Report

The pitch may slow down as the game goes on due to its used condition; thus, both captains will want to bat first. Dubai will be an excellent ground with suitable boundary sizes and some bowler help in favorable batting conditions. 

Anticipated that each side will score between 170-180 runs throughout the game. Dubai has a batting-friendly surface; however, slowness is expected as the game progresses, and erratic bounce may help the bowlers. 

The match will likely be played in humid, sweltering conditions in Dubai. The highest and the lowest temperatures will be 24℃ and 16℃, and the wind speed will be 14 km/h in the east direction.

Match Prediction

MIE has an aggressive lower order, including their skipper Pollard, who can change the direction of the match whenever he wants. Their bowlers have also contributed to the recent success of their squad. The DC has talented players but needs consistent batting and bowling units. They want to give it their all in their last group stage game. We Fancy MIE win this game based on the current form and strong roster.
