The final week of the ILT20 2024 season league stage campaign has commenced, and on Tuesday, Dubai Capitals will take on defending champions Gulf Giants at Dubai International Cricket Stadium from 8.00 PM IST onwards. With the playoff qualification on the line, it's a must-win matchup for both sides.

DC Vs GG: Team Previews

Dubai Capitals

Dubai Capitals kicked off the ILT20 2024 season on a terrific note under the leadership of Aussie veteran David Warner. However, the team lost the plot after a couple of heavy losses.

The inexperience in the bowling unit was brutally exposed as the Capitals witnessed a problematic trend of choking in death overs.

In the previous game against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, despite dismissing half the side under 100 runs, the Capitals let the momentum slip as Andre Russell's fiery innings soared the target to 184 runs.

Later, in the chase, the star-studded batting order succumbed to pressure and gifted an easy win to the Knight Riders.

That being said, the upcoming matchup against the Gulf Giants is a match-win game for the Capitals with respect to their playoff hopes. The team currently stands at the bottom two of the points table, and with only three games left in the league stage, time is running out.

Gulf Giants

The defending champions, Gulf Giants, are finally back to winning ways after a series of painful losses. They defeated the Sharjah Warriors in a convincing victory on Sunday. 

Batting first, Shimron Hetmyer and Jamie Overton put up a 50+ run stand for the sixth wicket to post an above-par total of 187 runs, which proved to be too steep for the struggling Warriors lineup.

Sharjah Warriors have struggled with the willow all season long. Thus, the Giants backed themselves and bowled out the Warriors under 108 runs to seal a thumping 79-run victory.

That being said, the Giants' bowling lineup has come alive after a series of lackluster performances. It's important for the Gulf Giants to keep the momentum going, as playoff odds are still hanging in the balance.

DC Vs GG: Dubai International Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch of Dubai International Cricket Stadium has been an absolute belter for batters this ILT20 season. We saw Desert Vipers chasing 160 runs target comfortably with three overs to spare last week. Thus, the average first-inning score is expected to be around 180 runs, and chasing could help as the ball will come to the bat more easily in the second half. Spinners could also reap rewards given discipline in lengths and usage of variations.
