Dubai Capitals vs Gulf Giants Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report 

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

In all three of the games that have been played so far, team captains have chosen to bowl first, and the teams that batted first have won two of the games. But we anticipate that the trend of chasing will also persist in this match.

Dubai has a pitch that is somewhat favourable for batting, particularly for pacers. As the game goes on, the pitch may become slower.

Dubai Capitals Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The Dubai Capitals’ batting lineup performed as well as could have been expected in the last game, but it does not mean there aren’t any flaws. Because they no longer play nearly enough top-notch T20 cricket, guys like Uthappa and Pathan remain a source of concern for us.

Recent form – W

Robin Uthappa, Rovman Powell, Sikander Raza, Ravi Bopara, Joe Root, Akif Raja, Isuru Udana, Mujeeb Ur Rehman, Hazrat Lugman, Yusuf Pathan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa

Gulf Giants Team News & Probable Playing XIs

We believe the Gulf Giants have a minor advantage over the Dubai Capitals in this regard because of the bowling unit’s inclusion of Richard Gleeson, Liam Dawson, Rehan Ahmed, and David Wiese. The Gulf Giants have a strong lineup at the plate. The team’s primary batters will be Shimron Hetmyer, David Wiese, James Vince, and Olli Pope.
