The second semi-final of the Emirates D10 League will see Sharjah take on Emirates Blue at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.

Riding on the exploits of national team players Kashif Daud and Vriitya Aravind, Sharjah are well on course for a successful campaign. Adding the experience of Rohan Mustafa only sweetens the deal for Sharjah.
Emirates Blue aren't pushovers by any means. They qualified for the Emirates D10 League semi-finals with six wins in 10 games and will be looking to go a step further to sustain their championship aspirations. The likes of Mohd Boota and Laxman Manjrekar will be key for them. Although they will start as underdogs, another entertaining game of cricket beckons on Monday.

A good batting track beckons with there being little margin for error for the bowlers. The pitch has offered some help off late to the bowlers, which should make for an even contest between bat and ball in the middle overs. Although both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, the conditions shouldn't change much during the game.
