It is the penultimate day of the league stages in this 2020 edition of the Emirates D20 league. Dubai square off against Fujairah at the ICC Academy ground in Dubai in the final game of the day. Moreover, this is the penultimate game for both teams.
Dubai have had a pretty up-and-down tournament so far. They are currently third on the points table with four wins and as many losses. However, their pattern in this tournament has been an interesting one. They have lost and won two games in a row alternately.
The Shahrukh Sheikh-led side started with a couple of losses before winning two and the pattern repeated itself. With two games to go, Dubai will be hoping they can shed the inconsistency and go on a winning run. They need one more win to seal a semi-final spot for themselves.
On the other hand, Fujairah have been absolutely dominant in this tournament so far. They have won all their eight games and they are looking nearly unstoppable at the moment. They are almost certain to top the points table and will want to keep their momentum.
