The upcoming matchup is a virtual knockout as the winning team will qualify for the playoff stage, whereas the losing side will bow out.

GG vs ADKR: Team Previews

Gulf Giants

Gulf Giants have produced a sensational comeback after losing four matches during the first half of the tournament. The defending champions' batting lineup has struggled against quality bowling attacks. 

While Hetmyer and skipper James Vince have shown flashes of brilliance, the inconsistency has played largely against them on most occasions.

That being said, the latest win against table toppers MI Emirates will surely fuel the Giants' morale ahead of the decisive game. After putting up a decent total of 158 runs on board, Gulf Giants put up a brave fight with the ball to seal the game with a mere five-run margin. 

With 30 needed off the final over, Jamie Overton was put under pressure as Jordan Thompson slammed two sixes. Yet, Overton backed himself as MI fell short of five runs.

Regardless, the death over blowout is a matter of concern for Gulf Giants. The weakness must be restricted to taking on Abu Dhabi Knight Riders on Saturday. 

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders are fairly at the same stage as Gulf Giants in the ILT20 2024 season points table, with only the negative net run rate acting as a bridge. 

After kicking off the season on a high, the Knight Riders fell off the bandwagon. They lost the previous game against Sharjah Warriors by seven wickets in a low-scoring, one-sided contest.

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders were bowled out for 94 runs in the first innings after Adil Rashid trapped the batting order in his spin web. It was a cakewalk for the Sharjah Warriors in the chase as they sealed a victory in under 14 overs. 

Needless to say, the Knight Riders' morale and confidence have taken a hit ahead of the virtual knockout. The issues related to batting need to be resolved to pose a threat against the Gulf Giants on Saturday.

GG vs ADKR: Dubai International Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch at Dubai International Cricket Stadium has produced an equal contest between the bat and the ball so far in the season. Anything around 160 is most likely a defendable score. However, spinners will play a crucial role throughout the course of the contest. Overall, chasing should be an ideal choice on this wicket.
