UAE T10 LEAGUE 2022, Match 4- NW vs DB Preview and Fantasy Prediction
UAE T10 LEAGUE, 2022
NW vs DB, 4th Match
The 6th season of the most famous shortest-format tournament in this world, the Abu Dhabi T20 League is now up and running. The 4th match will be a clash between NW and DB, which will be played on Thursday, 24th November. Both teams are regarded as the strongest ones in this league, and the fans can surely expect a lot of twists and turns in the match.
NW are the most successful franchise in this tournament having lifted silverware twice o far in these six seasons. Their last season was below par as they finished in the 5th position in the points table and apparently failed to qualify for the playoffs.
Rovman Powell will lead the side as usual. He had the only exceptional performances last season. He finished as the top scorer of the team smashing 305 runs. He was assisted by Moeen Ali and Kennar Lewis. The matter of disappointment is that NW will miss the services of Moeen Ali this season along with the spin wizard Imran Tahir, who was the highest wicket-taker for the franchise, the previous season.
From the bowling side, Rayad Emrit led the pack in the previous season and took 7 scalps. He will once again be the mainstream bowler. Also, the inclusion of players like Wanindu Hasaranga, Reece Topley, Wayne Parnell and Dushmantha Chameera will boost their all-rounder abilities.
DB never had the chance to the trophy in these six seasons by came extremely close to doing so, they made it to the grand finale in each of the previous two seasons. The franchise has retained Rahmatullah Gurbaz who was the best performer the last season. The Afghan batsman scored 343 runs in the last edition. Dominic Drakes was phenomenal with the ball picking up 19 wickets. DJ Bravo will once again be the leader of the side. Romario Shepherd, along with Ravi Rampaul and Eoin Morgan will be missed this time.
The team has sufficient potential and firepower with the likes of Tim David, Wil Jacks and Rilee Rossouw. Veteran Indian spin legend, Harbhajan Singh will also be a part of the Delhi squad this season.
Match: NW vs DB, 4th Match, UAE T10 League 2022
Date: Thursday, November 24, 2022
Time: 7:45 PM
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Pitch and Weather Report
In near times, there have been a lot of tournaments happening in Dubai. When it comes to T20I cricket, there has been a total of 63 matches at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The team batting second has won 35 matches out of the total.
In the T10 format of the game, it is important to get a high-scoring target on the board. Batters play a greater role than the bowling department in this game. This is because a bowler gets only 2 overs which is comparatively lesser than other formats and is tough to execute their plans within such a short span. Hence, the captains winning the toss might prefer to bat first and score maximum runs. This will pressurize the chasing team and restrict the flow of runs.
The average run at this venue is 135 runs and the average per over is approx 7 runs in T20I cricket. Although it would definitely change in the T10 League games.
November will be slightly cooler as compared to other months. The maximum temperature here in Abu Dhabi can reach upto 30 degrees Celsius and the lowest can be around 21 degrees Celsius.
The report shows a bit of cloud at the end week of the month but it is unlikely to cause an impact on the league matches.
