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

The forecast calls for bright skies and a peak temperature of 23 degrees Celsius.

Six out of the nine ILT20 matches played in Dubai this season saw teams batting second win. Vipers like to rely on their bowlers to help defend a total because they lack the setup necessary to chase down a target.

Dubai’s Dubai International Cricket Stadium will host the game. The batting lineups will anticipate posting scores of 170 or more, but the pitch does have something to offer the bowlers as well.

Desert Vipers Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The important batters at the top and middle of the order are Alex Hales, Sam Billings, and Colin Munro. In a long time, Munro hasn’t been at his best. Due to his expertise, he still plays for T20 clubs, but his strike rates and consistency are a cause for concern. Sheldon Cottrell and Luke Wood, both left-handed pace bowlers, both had figures of 2-36 while Gus Atkinson, Tom Curran, and Wanindu Hasaranga each got one batter out.

James Vince, the ILT20’s captain, will try to get into a rhythm as the race draws to a close. He is an important member of the top rank, and his performance is crucial. The Giants have a significant advantage in a run chase because to all-rounders David Wiese and Liam Dawson who bring depth to the batting lineup. Along with Wiese and Dominic Drakes, Chris Jordan has a wealth of playing experience that has the potential to have a significant impact.
