In this article we will be analyzing the VIP vs DUB Match Prediction for the ILT20 2024. Desert Vipers (VIP) are set to collide with Dubai Capitals (DUB) in a bottom-of-the-table clash in the ongoing International League T20 (ILT20) competition on Friday, February 9, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Both teams have won three games and lost five out of the eight they have played. The Vipers are coming off a 30-run defeat against MI Emirates in their last game. Meanwhile, the Capitals, who are placed at the foot of the points table, have lost their last two games against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders and Gulf Giants respectively.
The Vipers and the Capitals squared off earlier this month in Dubai when Colin Munro and Co. posted 169/6 in their 20 overs. A blistering half-century from Ben Dunk and an unbeaten 38-run partnership between Rovman Powell and Jason Holder helped the Capitals win the match off the last ball, with four wickets in the bank.
The two teams would be desperate for a win as a defeat could reduce their chances of reaching the playoffs considerably.

VIP vs DUB Probable Top Performers
Probable Best Batter: Alex Hales
The explosive England batter hasn’t got the amount of runs he would have liked but he has played a couple of good knocks. In eight games, he has scored 195 runs at an average of 24.38 and a strike rate of 131.75. The Vipers would hope that Hales gets going and puts them in a strong position in the important clash against the Capitals.

Probable Best Bowler: Wanindu Hasaranga
The Sri Lankan all-rounder has been in fine form. He has taken 12 wickets from eight games at an average of 16.25 and a strike rate of 16. He has also been miserly with the ball, conceding runs at an economy rate of just 6.09. His role in the middle overs is going to be very crucial.
