The first Emirates D10 League encounter on Thursday has Team Abu Dhabi taking on Ajman Alubond at the ICC Academy in Dubai.
Both teams are in the run for a top four finish, although Ajman Alubond look the better of the two. Despite starting slowly in this competition, Ajman have recovered well with good wins against the ECB Blues and the Fujairah Pacific Ventures.
However, they will be wary of Team Abu Dhabi, with the reverse fixture ending in an emphatic TAD win. Abu Dhabi will be desperate for a win here, with the hopes of qualification hanging in the balance.
All in all, a very competitive game beckons in the Emirates D10 League with two valuable points up for grabs in this game.

A high-scoring pitch awaits the two sides in this Emirates D10 League fixture. The batsmen have been able to take the bowlers on from ball one, despite them getting some help off the pitch.
The spinners should get some turn in the middle overs which should keep the batsmen in check. Either way, both teams will be looking to bat first and aim for at least 100 on Thursday.
