Cricket Match Predictions Emirates D20: Dubai Pulse Secure and Sharjah Bukhatir XI - Match 15
The 15th match of the Emirates D20 Tournament will be played between Dubai Pulse Secure and Sharjah Bukhatir XI at the ICC Cricket Academy, Dubai.
Dubai Pulse Secure started off the tournament by losing two of their early games but have bounced back well by securing two victories in the last two. Currently, they are holding the number 3 spot on the points table.
In their last game against Ajman Alubond, they lost the toss and were invited to have a bat first. They got off to a terrible start by losing both of their openers Adnaan Khan and Syed Haider within the powerplay overs. Ronak Panoly soon followed the suit by getting out to a beautiful delivery by Zubair Zuhaib. As a result, Dubai were struggling at 49 for 3 in their 10th over. In came their captain and changed the course of the game by scoring a magnificent 37 runs off 19 balls and stitched important partnerships with Bilal Cheema and Punya Mehra. In the end, Dubai made an above par score of 148 runs in their 20 overs.
Chasing 148, Ajman Alubond lost two of their openers in the 4th over to Nilansh Keswani. Ali Nasser further complicated things for Ajman by picking up the wicket of Anand Kumar. Rameez Shahzad posed threat to the opposition by scoring 45 runs in 37 balls but he was not given enough support on the other end as wickets kept tumbling. Owing to the high required rate, Rameez went for the glory shot and was well caught by Syed Haider. After Shahzad’s wicket, Dubai bowlers ripped through the lower middle order of Ajman and restricted them to a total of 112 runs in 20 overs winning the game by 36 runs.
Sharjah Bukhatir XI on the other hand have lost their match today against ECB Blues. Winning the toss, they elected to field first. Kashif Daud provided the first breakthrough by dismissing CP Rizwan for a score of 2 runs. However, after a great start with the bowl, ECB Blues batsmen smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground. Vriitya Aravind and Alishan Sharafu cultivated a match winning partnership of 121 runs for the 2nd wicket and propelled ECB Blues for a huge total. For Sharjah Bukhatir XI, Hafeez Rahman was the pick of the bowlers taking 2 wickets. ECB Blues put on a big total of 170 runs in their 20 overs.
Chasing 170, Sharjah Bukhatir XI lost their key batsman Renjth Mani at a total of 35 runs. Soon, Khalid Shah, Kashif Daud and Fayyaz Ahmed perished leaving the team trembling at 45 for 4. They could never really recover after this period and finished 20 overs with a total of 106 losing the game by 64 runs.
