Abu Dhabi T10 League, Delhi Bulls vs Qalandars: Predicted XIs, match prediction and live telecast details
After trouncing the Karnataka Tuskers in their previous match, the Qalandars will try to cement their place in the top 4 with a clinical performance against the lowly Delhi Bulls in match number 22 of T10 League 2019. Today is the last day in the league stage of the T10 League and thus, this is a do-or-die match for the Qalandars.
The Bulls are already out of the competition having registered just a solitary win in their five matches. The Eoin Morgan-led side has disappointed the fans with their inconsistent performances in the T10 League. However, they will look to end their campaign on a high today.

The primary target of the Delhi team should be English wicket-keeper batsman Tom Banton. He had played a whirlwind knock of 80 runs last night in Abu Dhabi and will be rearing to come all guns blazing against the Bulls. Ravi Rampaul will have the responsibility of scalping his wicket.
From the Bulls’ batting department, Angelo Mathews will be the player to look out for. The Sri Lankan batsman has scored 80 runs in this season at a decent average of 26.66. The former Lankan captain will look to frustrate his compatriot, Seekkuge
But, his compatriot Seekkuge Prasanna would not want him to play a big knock tonight as Prasanna has been the most economical bowler of the Qalandars.
Chris Lynn had blown away the Delhi Bulls in their previous match hence, the team management may change the team’s bowling attack. Since this is the last match of their season, Zaheer Khan could play this game and he can replace David Willey in the team. Apart from that, there should be no changes in the match squad.
Probable XI: Kusal Perera (wk), Paul Stirling, Sherfane Rutherford, Eoin Morgan (c), Angelo Mathews, Mohammad Nabi, Waheed Ahmed, Adil Rashid, Zaheer Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Ali Khan
Just like the Delhi Bulls, the Qalandars might change their playing XI. New Zealand’s veteran wicket-keeper batsman Luke Ronchi may walk into the team replacing Tom Kohler-Cadmore who had recorded a golden duck in the last match. Skipper Dawid Malan will look to improve his performance in this game as he too got out for a duck against Karnataka Tuskers.
Probable XI: Tom Banton, Dawid Malan (c), Phillip Salt (wk), Laurie Evans, Luke Ronchi, Chris Jordan, Seekkuge Prasanna, Sultan Ahmed, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Lahiru Kumara, Geroge Garton
The Delhi Bulls will have nothing to lose in this match thus, they will play fearless cricket. Morgan and Zaheer will try to end their campaign on a high, however, the Qalandars are high on momentum after their convincing win in the previous game.
This match may go down to the wire but, the fans can back the Qalandars to emerge victorious and seal their playoff spot.
Qalandars are expected to win this match.
