Match 14 of the Emirates D10 League 2021 has Sharjah taking on ECB Blues at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.
Sharjah has been the team to beat in the competition, with four wins in four games. Riding on the fortunes of Vriitya Aravind and Rohan Mustafa, Sharjah is well on course for a top-two finish and possibly a championship-winning season as well.
However, the ECB Blues are also in decent form with three wins in four games. They have a solid batting unit led by CP Rizwan and Mohammad Boota. Adding in captain Waheed Ahmed's skill-set makes the contest more interesting.
Although both teams are fairly matched on paper, Sharjah will hold the upper hand going by recent form. However, the ECB Blues will be looking to hand their opponents their first loss of the season as they eye the top spot in the points table of the Emirates D10 League 2021.

A good batting track beckons with there being little margin for error for the bowlers, who will have to be clever with their lines and lengths. The dimensions of the ground will only make things harder for the bowlers and the batsmen will target the square boundaries, with 100 being the bare minimum at this venue. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, although the conditions shouldn't change much during the game.
