Gulf Giants vs MI Emirates Preview

  • Gulf Giants have won four games and lost just one thus far.
  • Despite MI losing their past two games, captain Kieron Pollard is in fantastic form.
  • While trying to score 152 runs, the Gulf Giants dropped their most recent game in Dubai.


MI Emirates and Gulf Giants will face off at the Dubai International Stadium. On Friday, January 27, 2023 ILT20 match number 18 begins at 18:00 local time.

Gulf Giants’ recent success has been checked as they lost to Sharjah Warriors in Match 14 and had their game against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders abandoned without a ball being bowled. This comes after they had won three straight games.

With a strong start, Kieron Pollard’s team surged to the top of the standings, but they have since dropped both of their most recent contests. Their most recent loss occurred on Tuesday in Abu Dhabi when they were defeated by the Desert Vipers by seven wickets with 21 balls remaining.

Gulf Giants vs MI Emirates Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report 

In the UAE, it has been pouring for the past few days. Rain is expected to start at 6 PM on Friday, which can cause a delay. The 22-degree Celsius mark will be reached by the temperature.

Five of the seven games played at this venue in Dubai have been won by teams batting second. Particularly in twilight games, batting gets simpler in the second inning. Both teams would want to bowl first since Gulf Giants have strong batting lineups with big-hitting finishers.

The Dubai International Stadium will host the game. This wicket has decent pace and carry, therefore we anticipate a par score of around 175 runs.

MI Emirates Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The performances of Pollard and Najibullah Zadran were outstanding and crucial to MI Emirates’ victories. Other than these two, Andre Fletcher and Nicholas Pooran at positions 3 and 4 will be essential contributors to the Mi batting lineup. They have a strong batting lineup, with the exception of the opening pair, who haven’t been playing well. The leading bowler with the new ball will be Trent Boult. The majority of the bowling assault has struggled recently, and they have been costly. Bravo has a ton of experience and can produce timely breakthroughs.
