Desert Vipers vs Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Match Pitch Report
The pitch will be good for batting and there won’t be much help on offer. Spinners will be the trump card, especially in first innings, because dew could make life tough for them later in the game.
What to expect:
Desert Vipers: Desert Vipers ILT20’s inaugural campaign came to a disappointing end, as they lost the final to Gulf Giants. They were one of the teams to beat last season going into the tournament and played like one. With 7 wins and 3 losses from 10 games in the league stage, they proved to be a headache for most teams, except eventual winners the Giants who got the better of the Vipers three out of four times, including the final.
Desert Vipers Key Players
- Alex Hales- Hales is one of the most destructive batters in this format of the game. He set the stage on fire last year and scored 468 runs and will be looking for a similar performance this year.
- Wanindu Hasaranga- Wanindu Hasaranga is a proper match-winner in this format of the game. Hasaranga is one of the best spinners going around in World Cricket and also adds a lot of quality with the bat down the order.
- Matheesha Pathirana- Pathirana will bring a lot of quality to the team. The bowler has been groomed by MS Dhoni and has emerged as one of the best death-over bowlers in this format of the game.
Probable XI: Alex Hales, Colin Munro(c), Dinesh Chandimal(w), Adam Hose, Rohan Mustafa, Sherfane Rutherford, Wanindu Hasaranga, Gus Atkinson, Luke Wood, Tom Curran, Matheesha Pathirana
Desert Vipers Squad: Alex Hales, Colin Munro(c), Dinesh Chandimal(w), Adam Hose, Rohan Mustafa, Bas de Leede, Wanindu Hasaranga, Gus Atkinson, Sherfane Rutherford, Tom Curran, Sheldon Cottrell, Michael Jones, Karthik Meiyappan, Aryan Lakra, Luke Wood, Matheesha Pathirana, Ali Naseer
Abu Dhabi Knight Riders: Abu Dhabi Knight Riders had a shocking ILT20 last year, managing to win only one contest which came as a consolation in their last match of the tournament against an underperforming Sharjah Warriors team. The Knight Riders will be hoping their worst is over, as they embark on a new season with a strong squad with destructive T20 batsmen and crafty bowlers capable of winning matches for their team single-handedly.
Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Key Players
- Charith Asalanka
- Laurie Evans- Laurie Evans played a few good innings in the BBL so he will come into the tournament on the back of some decent form. He has momentum by his side and will be eyeing match-winning performances for his team.
- Sunil Narine- Sunil Narine has been around in this format of the game for nearly a decade and he has been very consistent, playing a crucial role in the teams’ wins. Narine is a brilliant bowler as we all know and a more than a handy batter.
Probable XI: Joe Clarke(w), Laurie Evans, Sam Hain, Charith Asalanka, Brandon McMullen, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine(c), David Willey, Marchant de Lange, Joshua Little, Ali Khan
Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Squad: Sam Hain, Laurie Evans, Joe Clarke(w), Charith Asalanka, Brandon McMullen, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine(c), Ravi Bopara, David Willey, Marchant de Lange, Joshua Little, Ali Khan, Jake Lintott, Michael-Kyle Pepper, Alishan Sharafu, Adhitya Shetty, Sabir Ali, Matiullah Khan
Desert Vipers vs Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Match Winner
Desert Vipers vs Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Match Prediction
Desert Vipers are clear favorites to win. The team has multiple match winners from top to bottom. They have brute force in batting and the bowling attack also looks lethal with good pacers and quality spinners. Abu Dhabi does not have the same quality in batting or bowling. Also, the players they have are mostly one-match wonders and are not known for consistency. We are backing Vipers to start on a winning note.
We expect the MI Emirates to win this match.

VIP vs ABD Match Dream11 Team
Desert Vipers vs Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Match Both Teams Top Batsmen
Alex Hales, Colin Munro, and Sherfane Rutherford will be batters to watch out for. All three players carry match-winning skills with the bat. Hales was the leading run-scorer last year with over 450 runs while Munro and Rutherford can butcher a bowling lineup when on song. If the three players get going, the Vipers will be unstoppable.
Ibrahim Zadran, Laurie Evans, and Andre Russell will be the main batters. ADKR have match-winners in the batting unit but all depend on how consistent they are. Zadran is someone one can bank upon to come good as he has been very consistent for Afghanistan but Evans and Russell can blow hot and cold, If they click, ADKR can be a force but if they fail, the team can be under pressure.
Desert Vipers vs Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
The Vipers have a very good bowling attack as well. The likes of Wanindu Hasaranga and Matheesha Pathirana are match-winners with the ball. Hasaranga has dominated T20 cricket ever since he made his debut while Pathirana has shown his class in a competitive tournament like IPL. Someone like Ali Naseer will also be handy given his familiarity with the conditions.
Sunil Narine and Josh Little will be the two main bowlers for the team. Sunil is a veteran in T20 cricket and is still going strong despite having a career that has lasted nearly a decade. Josh Little has also emerged as a very good T20 bowler and showed his class in IPL 2023. Also, Andre Russell can be a good bowling option given that he bowls in death and has good variations.
