  • Though the team is doing well in the tournament, they are dependent more on their bowlers and most of the batsmen have a strike-rate lesser than 120. 
  • Punya Mehra has been consistent with the bat for the team but once again strike-rate has been the issue. He has a strike-rate of 90.12. 
  • Adnaan Khan is the best batsman in the team but he is yet to perform big here. He averages close to 13 in the tournament. 

ECB Blues

  • While ECB Blues have done well with the bat, they are struggling with the ball, especially in the death overs. 
  • Another trouble for the team is that they keep changing the batting combination on the top and it does affect the momentum of the team. 
  • Aryan Lakra is the most popular pick from ECB Blues, thanks to his five-wicket haul earlier in the tournament.

ECB Blues will begin the contest as the favorites here but the team tends to experiment more. This might not work and the team might end up losing as well. Recently, they opened with Aryan Lakra which back-fired for them. Dubai, on the other hand, will be looking to chase the target as they have a strong bowling line-up. Our Dream11 Team Prediction experts feel it is going to be a reckless game between the aforementioned sides.
