The MI Emirates will face the Dubai Capitals in the Eliminator of the ongoing ILT20 2023 season. The two sides finished the league stage among the four highest-ranked teams on the points table, thus punching their tickets for the playoffs.

The winner of the upcoming contest will have to undergo another hurdle before the final, in the form of Qualifier 2 on February 10. Meanwhile, the loser will be eliminated from the tournament.

The MI Emirates began the inaugural ILT20 season strongly. Under Nicholas Pooran, they won three matches upfront before losing traction in the crucial stages. They managed to add only two more wins in their subsequent seven fixtures, and secured a top four finish owing to their emphatic beginnings.

The Dubai Capitals, on the other hand, earned their qualification by winning their last league stage game against the same opponents they are about to encounter. They barely edged past the Sharjah Warriors on the points table, despite holding an inferior net run-rate.
