International T20 League 2024
Qualifier 2: DC vs GG

 

Preview

Dubai Capitals will cross swords with Gulf Giants for the Qualifier 2 of the International T20 League 2024. The match is going to be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday, February 15.

DC have had a lot of ups and downs this season, still, they fought hard and managed to finish fourth to qualify for the Play-offs later gaining a victory in the Eliminator 1. The services of captain Sam Billings and star all-rounder Sikandar Raza have boosted most of the scoring for the side. Tom Abell and Tom Banton have shown some signs of improvement in the recent game against ADKR and are expected to keep on their momentum. The bowling department has been led by Scott Kuggelejin, who has been the top wicket-taker as well.

On the other hand, defending champions Gulf Giants have been in sublime touch during the group stage matches, but they faced a defeat in the Qualifier 1. GG looks balanced, unlike the Capitals, with their key players contributing effectively in the game. 

James Vince, Jordan Cox and Shimron Hetmyer will take charge of the batting side. The duo of Jamie Overton and Zuhaib Zubair have been managing the bowling side quite well and have already claimed 10 and 11 wickets respectively.
