Cricket Match Predictions Emirates D20: Dubai Pulse Secure and Ajman Alubond- Match 12
The 12th match of the Emirates D20 tournament will be played between Dubai Pulse Secure and Ajman Alubond at the ICC Cricket Academy, Dubai.
Dubai Pulse Secure have lost two of their 3 matches played. Their lone win came against a weak team of Abu Dhabi.
In their last game against Abu Dhabi, Dubai lost the toss and were invited to field first. Omer Farooq and Nilansh Keswani started off very well with the new ball. Omer Farooq was busy providing early wickets to the team while Nilesh Keswani kept the batsmen quiet with his accuracy. In the middle overs, the only batsmen from Abu Dhabi that posed some resistance to the Dubai bowlers was Osama Hasan who scored 31 runs at a strike rate of 91. Tahir Latif was introduced in the latter half of the innings and he ripped through the middle order of Abu Dhabi as he took 4 wickets while giving away 25 runs in his 4 overs. As a result, Abu Dhabi made a total of 107 for 9 in their 20 overs.
After a great show by the bowlers, it was time for the Dubai Pulse Secure’s batsmen to come good in the tournament. Adnaan Khan provided a sensational start to his team by scoring quick 26 runs off 11 balls. After the failure in the first game, it was a great redemption on the part of Adnaan Khan. He along with Syed Haider put on 48 runs for the opening partnership and sealed the fate of the match. Syed Haider played well for his 55 runs in 41 deliveries. In the end, Dubai chased the total comfortably with 8 wickets in hand.
Dubai Pulse Secure need to bring out their best game against Ajman Alubond to give them a tough competition in their next encounter.
Ajman Alubond have lost 2 games out of the 3 matches they played. The last of their game against ECB Blues was totally dominated by the opposition and Ajman Alubond lost it by 8 wickets.
After losing the toss, Ajman Alubond were put in to bat first. The openers again failed to give their side a decent start and got out cheaply. Rameez Shahzad who has bailed his team out of difficult position multiple times also failed and got out for 7 runs. It was Asif Khan who held the innings together in the middle overs with his gritty knock of 31 runs but it was not going to be enough Ajman scored runs at a very low rate. After Aryan Lakra was introduced into the attack, he bamboozled the Ajman batsmen with his deliveries and picked up 4 wickets in the game giving away just 8 runs. Ajman Alubond were bundled out for 93 runs and could not even play their complete 20 overs.
The bowlers had a very tiny total to defend and there were not many hopes going into the dressing room after a dismal first innings performance by Ajman Alubond. During the chase, ECB Blues openers got off to a flyer and put on an opening partnership of 51 runs. This partnership almost sealed the fate of the match as Alishan Sharafu and CP Rizwan ensured that ECB Blues chased the total in the end without much hassle. Ajman were defeated by 8 wickets in the match.
Ajman Alubond need its key players like Abdul Shakoor to play more flamboyantly to get the team good starts. The odds would be in favour of Ajman Alubond against Dubai Pulse Secure but we will only have to wait and see how both teams perform.
