Abu Dhabi and ECB Blues take on each other in the Emirates D20 at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
ECB Blues have had a good run in the Emirates D20 tournament, winning five of their seven games. They are second in the points table and will hope to get back to winning ways after a loss against Fujairah Pacific Ventures, where the Basil Hameed-led side fell 14 runs short of a 154-run target.
Abu Dhabi, on the other hand, are at the bottom of the Emirates D20 points table. They are yet to win a game in the tournament and have just two points to their name,,thanks to two matches that were called off. Unsurprisingly, ECB Blues go into this game as the clear favourites.
