Desert Vipers vs Gulf Giants Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report 

The match will likely be played in humid, sweltering weather in Dubai.

In the majority of the games so far, the team captains have chosen to bowl first. And we anticipate that this match will also follow the trend of chasing.

Dubai has a relatively batting-friendly surface with certain advantages for pacers in particular. As the game goes on, the pitch may become slower.

Desert Vipers Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Right-handed opener Alex Hales of England has led the Desert Vipers in scoring in each of their three games. In the first game against Sharjah Warriors, he scored 83 runs without being out, and in the two matches against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, he scored 64 and 110 runs, respectively. The team depends on him. Other than that, the Vipers are not at risk of injury.
