Abu Dhabi T10 League, Karnataka Tuskers vs Team Abu Dhabi: Predicted XIs, match prediction and live telecast details
The two teams who have the disappointed the most in T10 League 2019, Team Abu Dhabi and Karnataka Tuskers will try to end their campaign on a high with a victory in the final league match of the season. Both the sides have been able to register only one win in their respective five matches.
While the home franchise had achieved this win against the Northern Warriors in their second match, the Tuskers have not won a match since defeating the Delhi Bulls by 19 runs in their season opener. Neither of the teams can make it to the playoffs but they will play for pride in this high-voltage clash.
Talking about the players to watch out for, English all-rounder Luke Wright has been the lone bright spot of Team Abu Dhabi's T10 League campaign. In the bowling attack, Team Abu Dhabi will expect Aussie pacer Ben Laughlin to pick a wicket or two.
For the Tuskers, Shapoor Zadran and Nepali leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane will hold the key to success in the bowling department. On the other side, Hashim Amla and Johnson Charles will look to end their campaigns on a high.

The Karnataka Tuskers suffered a 32-run defeat in their previous game, however, the team management may not alter the squad since the team has nothing to lose.
Probable XI: Johnson Charles (wk), Evin Lewis, Hashim Amla (C), Ross Whiteley, Shafiqullah Shafiq (wk), Ryan ten Doeschate, Ahmed Raza, Sandeep Lamicchane, Shapoor Zadran, Kesrick Williams, Nathan Rimmington.
Team Abu Dhabi
Unlike Karnataka Tuskers, Team Abu Dhabi's previous game concluded in a no result after the home side had posted 118 runs on the board. They had got off to a good start with the ball as Rohan Mustafa had got the better of Shane Watson, however, the Moeen Ali-led outfit had to share the points in the end. The fans should not expect any changes in their side.
Probable XI: Luke Wright, Avishka Fernando, Moeen Ali (C), Wayne Madsen, Lewis Gregory, Rohan Mustafa, Alex Davies (wk), Ben Laughlin, Harry Gurney, Marchant de Lange, Hayden Walsh.
Team Abu Dhabi had played fantastically against the Deccan Gladiators. The likes of Wayne Madsen and Luke Wight had come to the party in the batting order while Rohan Mustafa had performed well with the ball. The same cannot be said of the Tuskers as the Qalandars had outplayed them yesterday evening. Hence, the home team will start as the favorites tonight.
Team Abu Dhabi could be expected to win this game.
