The 5th match of the Emirates D10 League 2020 in Dubai will be played between Team Abu Dhabi and Sharjah Bukhatir XI at the ICC Academy Cricket Ground.

PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
The Emirates D10 League had a lovely start, and all four games were pretty exciting. Each of the six participating teams played at least one game each and kept the fans on the edge of their seats. The first match was a nail biter, which ended up in a draw. Then came one of those matches where the freakish 164 runs were scored in just 10 overs.
As the tournament as a whole looks to keep up with the positive start on the second day as well, the teams have a different outlook and agenda. They would have preferred to climb up the ladder by adding a few points to their count and also concentrating on the NRR. In the first game of the second day, Team Abu Dhabi will take on Sharjah Bukhatir XI – two teams that have played one game each so far.
It’s going to be a hot, sunny day in Dubai with temperatures up to 39 Celsius. The temperature is significantly higher and the temperatures are likely to test the players.
The margin for error for the bowlers would be much less on the track than at the ICC Academy Cricket Ground. You’re either expected to be at your best or you’re guaranteed to be torn apart by the batsmen.
