Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction T10 League 2019 - Maratha Arabians v Northern Warriors

©Abu Dhabi T10
 

The opening encounter of the T10 League 2019 will be played between Maratha Arabians and Northern Warriors at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Maratha Arabians and Northern Warriors have only played two matches against each other in which the Warriors have won both. The team won the first head to head encounter by 8 wickets. They were even more clinical the second time around, winning the game by 10 wickets.

Northern Warriors also won the last year's T10 League title. On the other hand, Maratha Arabians made it to the eliminator but could only manage 72 runs and suffered a defeat.

Due to the ongoing international cricket, a lot of players will be amiss from the playing XIs. For instance, the Arabians will be without Hazratullah Zazai and Najibullah Zadran, both of whom are competing in the T20Is against West Indies.

Likewise, Northern Warriors are likely to miss the services of Nicholas Pooran. However, after his 4-match ban, he can technically be available.

Chris Lynn will be the leading batter for Maratha Arabians and has a T20 strike rate in excess of 140. He will possibly pair with Chadwick Walton at the top of the order who starred in the Caribbean Premier League 2019.

Yuvraj Singh will be a big draw for the global audiences. Dwayne Bravo will lead the side which will also feature Lasith Malinga, who is still going great guns and is leading the Sri Lankan T20I side.

Apart from Nicholas Pooran, George Munsey would be a handy pick for Northern Warriors. The batsman played a big role in Scotland's qualification to the 2020 T20 World Cup and can be really explosive.

All-rounder Andre Russell can be a headache for any opposition if he is anywhere close to full fitness. Nuwan Pradeep and Chris Green will be the leading bowlers for Northern Warriors.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI both teams:

Maratha Arabians - Chris Lynn, Adam Lyth, Chadwick Walton (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Dasun Shanaka, Dwayne Bravo (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, James Fuller, Lasith Malinga, Nasir Aziz, Mitchell McClenaghan

Northern Warriors - George Munsey, Sam Billings (wk), Andre Russell, Sikandar Raza, Asela Gunaratne, Darren Sammy (c), Rayad Emrit, Chris Green, Nuwan Pradeep, Pravin Tambe, Ansh Tandon
