SJH vs GUL Match Pitch Report

The pitch of Sharjah Cricket Stadium is favorable for bowlers. In this stadium, spin bowlers get more wickets but fast bowlers also get help at the beginning of the match.

What to expect: 

Team news:

Sharjah Warriors: Sharjah Warriors defeated Gulf Giants by 21 runs while defending a below-par total of 151 runs in Dubai. And in their home game in Sharjah, they were bowled out for 107 runs batting first against the Giants.

Sharjah Warriors Key Players

  • Martin Guptill- Guptill is one of the most destructive batters going around in world cricket. Guptill recently delivered a good show for Auckland in Super Smash. He is likely to join the Warriors from the first game itself so will be a key player for the team.
  • Johnson Charles- Johnson Charles is also a match-winner in this format of the game. He may not be very consistent but when on song, he can absolutely slaughter a bowling lineup. Charles will open the innings along with Guptill and the pair forms a destructive partnership at the top.
  • Daniel Sams- Daniel Sams is a good option to have in the team given his all-round skills. Sam can get the new ball to move while he can be effective at death as well. He is known to play match-winning cameos with the bat.

Probable XI: Martin Guptill, Johnson Charles, Kusal Mendis (wk), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Joe Denly (c), Daniel Sams, Chris Woakes, James Fuller, Junaid Siddique, Qais Ahmed, Dilshan Madhushanka

Sharjah Warriors Squad: Tom Kohler-Cadmore (c), Junaid Siddique, Muhammad Jawadullah, Joe Denly, Chris Sole, Zak Crawley, Daniel Sams, Dilshan Madushanka, James Fuller, Johnson Charles, Junaid Siddique, Kusal Mendis, Lewis Gregory, Mahesh Theekshana, Mark Deyal, Mark Watt, Martin Guptill, Pratis GC, Bilal Tahir, Qais Ahmad, Ryan Burl

Gulf Giants: Gulf Giants will be looking to kick off their campaign on a winning note against the Warriors who they dominated with the ball on both occasions last year. It was the batting performance that let the Giants down in the Sharjah game last season while chasing a small target of 152 runs.

Gulf Giants Key Players

  • James Vince- James Vince was a star batter for the Giants in the previous season as he scored 439 runs in 11 games and topped the batting charts for his team. Vince is a brutal batter and while he is there at the crease, the Giants are always in the game.
  • Shimron Hetmyer- Hetmyer is also a quality batter in middle order. When the spinners are on, you need someone with brute power to clear the ropes and Hetmyer is the perfect batter you can ask for in those situations.
  • Mujeeb U Rahman- Mujeeb will be the ace bowler for the Giants ILT20 2024 season. The conditions will be helpful for spinners and Mujeeb, with all his experience and variations, will be very handy.

Probable XI: Chris Lynn, James Vince (c), Jordan Cox (wk), Usman Khan, Shimron Hetmyer, Gerhard Erasmus, Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Jordan, Dominic Drake, Richard Gleeson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Gulf Giants Squad: James Vince (c), Shimron Hetmyer, Chris Jordan, Chris Lynn, Gerhard Erasmus, Carlos Brathwaite, Aayan Afzal Khan, Dominic Drakes, Jamie Overton, Jamie Smith, Jordan Cox, Karim Janat, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rehan Ahmed, Richard Gleeson, Sanchit Sharma, Saurabh Netravalkar, Maaz Sadaqat, Finn Allen, Riaz Hassan, Alishan Sharafu, Aryansh Sharma, Kashyap Prajapati, Joshua Julius, Tom Mackintosh, Nathan Ellis, Basir Ahamad, Hazrat Bilal, Ashwanth Valthapa

Gulf Giants

Sharjah Warriors vs Gulf Giants Match Prediction

Gulf Giants will start the match as favourites. Giants enter the match as defending champs and they would like to make a statement in the first game itself. They have retained most of the squad from the last season and seem to have more depth in batting and quality in bowling. While Warriors are also strong on paper, Giants look slightly better. So we are backing Gulf Giants to win.

We expect the Gulf Giants to win this match.

SJH vs GUL Match Dream11 Team

Sharjah Warriors vs Gulf Giants Match Both Team Top Batsmen

Martin Guptill, Johnson Charles and Tom Kohler-Cadmore will be key batters for the Warriors. Guptill comes into the tournament after some decent performance in Super Smash while Charles and Cadmore bring in brute power in batting.

Chris Lynn, James Vince and Shimron Hetmyer will be main batters for the Giants. Vince scored over 400 runs last season while Lynn and Hetmyer are also match winners on their day.

Sharjah Warriors vs Gulf Giants Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers

Chris Woakes, Qais Ahmed and Dilshan Madushanka will be main bowlers. Woakes will bring sheer pace to the bowling for Warriors while Qais will be handy on spin friendly wickets. Madushanka had a great World Cup and also bagged an IPL contact with MI. He will look for fine performance in the ILT20.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Chris Jordan and Dominic Drake will be main bowlers for the Giants. Mujeeb in these conditions will be ace for Giants while Jordan is a T20 specialist bowler. Dominic Drake will also look out for some fine performances.
