Pitch Report: The wicket at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium has offered terrific batting conditions as seen in the 2020 edition of the IPL and the track is expected to behave in the similar manner for this game as well. There will be a lot of dew in the second innings and thus, the team winning the toss should look to bowl first. The average first innings total will remain around 180-200 mark.
As seen in the IPL 2020 season played in the UAE conditions, the Sharjah Cricket Stadium offered a belter of a track in the opening phase of the tournament. Therefore, it will be a good decision from the fantasy cricket team point of view to include as many batsmen from either of the sides. The likes of AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis and Moeen Ali will be must pick players in this game.
