The second Emirates D10 League 2020 fixture on Thursday pits two of the strongest sides in the competition, ECB Blues and Sharjah Bukhatir, against one another at the ICC Academy in Dubai.
Both sides did meet earlier in the tournament, with the ECB Blues defending a modest total against a strong Sharjah batting unit. However, both ECB Blues and Sharjah look well on course for a top-four finish in the competition.
Table-toppers ECB Blues are the firm favourites heading into this match. With only one loss to their name so far, they will be looking to sustain their momentum. However, they are in for a stern test, with Sharjah being capable of surprising the likes of Chirag Suri and Rohan Mustafa in what promises to be an exciting clash on Thursday.

The batsmen are expected to have a significant say in the outcome of the game with a batting-friendly pitch on offer. However, the bowlers should get some help with the spinners being essential in the middle overs. Both teams will look to bat first in this game with the conditions unlikely to change much over the course of the match, with 100 representing a par score.
