MI Emirates vs Gulf Giants Preview

This is a clash between the two table topping sides. In their head-to-head this season, each have won once, but the Giants have won their last four on the trot. I’m backing the Giants to secure the win.

  • MI Emirates’ Kusal Perera has scored 47, 65 & 34 runs in 3 of his last 4 innings.
  • Gulf Giants have won their last 4 matches.
  • Gulf Giants’ James Vince has scored 32, 59 & 50 runs in his last 3 matches.

Head to Head

These two have met twice this year already with each winning one. Their last match took place less than a week with the Giants winning a tight contest by five runs.

MI Emirates Form

The MI Emirates topped the table after 10 matches, winning six games and losing four. Their record was the same as the Giants, but they did manage to achieve a better net run rate.

Emirates lost their last match to the Dubai Capitals by 19 runs in a low scoring game. The Capitals scored 147 runs batting first on what was a pitch that offered the bowlers plenty.

Andre Fletcher scored 45 runs in the chase, but the MI Emirates struggled throughout. Only three other batsmen passed the 10-run mark as they could only reach 128 runs.

Their last performance was pretty average so we could see a change or two from the Emirates.

Gulf Giants Form

Gulf Giants finished second on the table, winning six and losing four of their 10 fixtures. They won their last match by three runs.

James Vince and Jordan Cox got the Giants off to a superb start, scoring 103 runs before the first wicket fell. Vince scored 50 while Coz managed 57. Shimron Hetmyer added 39 runs late on but 166 was a pretty par score.

Jamie Overton however bowled well, taking 3-32 which saw the Giants just get over the line.

The Giants are playing well at the moment. I foresee an unchanged side.


James Vince is backed to top score in a Gulf Giants victory. For Emirates, I am tipping Kusal Perera to top score.
