Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Qatar T10 League 2019 - Falcon Hunters v Heat Stormers
The 3rd match of the Qatar T10 League 2019 will be played between Falcon Hunters and Heat Stormers at the West End Park International Cricket Stadium in Doha.
Falcon Hunters possibly have the strongest openers among all the six franchises with former South Africa international Hashim Amla and West Indies opener Johnson Charles in the ranks. The team has two quality openers who can help them get off to a good start.
Charles ended as third highest run-scorer in the Caribbean Premier League 2019 with 415 runs from 13 matches at an average of 43, along with three half-centuries.
Hashim Amla did a fine job while leading Karnataka Tuskers in the Abu Dhabi T10 League at an average of 35 and a strike rate of close to 150.
The team also has Salman Butt, who is doing a fine job at the domestic level and is still a popular figure despite being tainted. Talented Canadian all-rounder Saad Bin Zafar and England's Tom Abell are the other notable names in the Hunters' squad.
Just like Falcon Hunters, their opponents Heat Stormers also have their top order sorted with Mohammad Shahzad and Naeem Islam in their ranks. Shahzad has been suspended from the Afghanistan international team for one year. He was one of the major contributors for Deccan Gladiators in the Abu Dhabi T10 League and struck at over 200.
Young Bangladesh batsman Naeem Islam recently impressed one and all with a hard-hitting 48-ball 81 in the 3rd T20I against India.
The team also has Zimbabwe's skilled batting all-rounder Sikandar Raza who can be handy for the team in both the departments and Netherlands wicketkeeper-batsman Scott Edwards who has impressive T20 numbers with an average of 31.92 and a strike rate of 145.65.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Heat Stormers - Manpreet Singh Gony (India), Mohammad Shahzad (Afghanistan), Naeem Islam (Bangladesh), Mohammad Irfan (Pakistan), Rohit Kumar Paudel (Nepal), Scott Edwards (Netherlands), Sikandar Raza (Zimbabwe), Sufyan Mehmood (Oman) and Qatar Players (Owais Ahmed, Raja Amir, Andri Berenger, Dharmang Patel, Imraz Rafi, Talal Ahmed & Afsarullah Khan)
