At the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the Desert Vipers will compete with the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders. On Friday, January 20, 2022-23 ILT20 match 9 gets begins at 18:00 local time.

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders’ start to this new tournament has not been ideal or intended, as they have suffered three losses in their first three games. The Desert Vipers defeated them on Wednesday, and they will likely struggle against them because all three of their losses have been by huge margins.

After defeating both the Sharjah Warriors and the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders by seven wickets thus far in the ILT20, the Vipers only know one way to win matches. The Vipers should move to the top of the standings at this early stage if they win their second match against the Knight Riders.

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Sunil Narine, the skipper of the Knight Riders, is primarily reliant on his bowling. The shrewd off-spinner, as usual, has kept things close by bowling at a speed of just 6.12. He requires more assistance from the other bowlers, though. Although Akeal Hosein has shown unimpressive thus far and has run at an economy of 10.09, Ravi Rampaul is a seasoned politician. No injuries are an issue for the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders.

Sheldon Cottrell and Tom Curran are the Vipers’ two main seam bowlers. Although they frequently give up runs, the two can grab big wickets. England speedster Tymal Mills put on a good effort in the last game with a period of 1-11 in 3 overs. For the Vipers, there isn’t a capable spin bowler who could have been effective on these wickets. The Vipers are also unconcerned about injuries.

With a new location for the tournament’s upcoming round of games, some clubs’ fortunes may change. We do not anticipate that to occur for these two teams in this game, though. On the bumpier Abu Dhabi field, the Knight Riders bowlers might have greater success, but we anticipate that they will again struggle against the strong Vipers’ top order. We expect Desert Vipers to win this matchup handily once again.
