Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Both teams would want to bat first on what is decent batting track. All the evening games have seen the chasing side win the game after restricting the run-scoring to less than a hundred. Spinners will get some turn early on and could make good use of the dimensions of the ground as well.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Mohammad Shahzad and Luke Ronchi are both capable of scoring big runs at the top of the order. Although he hasn't managed to do in the three games so far, Mohammad Shahzad should get the nod over Luke Ronchi for this game. Both of them could also be picked if the credits suffice.
Batsmen: Shane Watson and Tom Banton are must-haves in the side owing to their form. Likened to Kevin Pietersen, Tom Banton has already scored a fifty against Northern Warriors and is good value for a place in the fantasy side. To round off the batting department, the likes of Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Philip Salt also for the bill for this game.
Allrounders: While Kieron Pollard is a certainty in most fantasy team, the duo of Anton Devcich and Jordan Clark also warranty a place in the side. Known for his ability to clear the boundary with ease, Clark had done well with the ball and looks good for more wickets and runs on Tuesday. Another possible option can be Seekuge Prasanna, whose leg-spin is a handy option to have in the fantasy side.
Bowlers: Mujeeb ur Rahman is set make his first appearance in this year's T10 League and is one to keep an eye on. While Mujeeb occupies one spot in the side, the likes of Chris Jordan and Fawad Ahmed also warranty a place in the side. They are their team's best bets with the ball and should be able to pick a wicket or two in this crucial game. As for the final pick, one of Zahir Khan or Migael Pretorius should also do the trick.
Captain: Kieron Pollard's exploits in the previous game will ensure his name is in the running for captaincy. Nevertheless, the front-runners for the multiplier options would be Dawid Malan and Shane Watson. Kieron Pollard is also a useful option while Tom Banton's form is also too good to be ignored.
