The 11th Match of Qatar T10 League 2019 will be played between the Falcon Hunters and Flying Oryx at West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha.
The match starts at 9:00 PM local time (11:30 PM IST) (6:00 PM GMT). It can be watched live on FanCode in India.
Only a handful of games remain in the Qatar T10 League 2019 as Flying Oryx faces the Falcon Hunters on Thursday. In spite of a rollicking start to their campaign, Flying Oryx is in the middle of the table with three points. On the other hand, Falcon Hunters come into this game on the back of a brilliant chase on Wednesday.
With the experienced duo of Salman Butt and Hashim Amla in their ranks, Falcon Hunters will fancy their chances of yet another win. While the Hunters’ ability to chase is undeniable, the Flying Oryx has a well-balanced side as well with Hussain Talat being critical to their cause. Nevertheless, both sides are in with a fighting chance with this being a must-win game for either side to strengthen their case for a semi-final place.
The weather forecast is clear on Thursday with the temperature hovering around 21 degrees Celsius. Unlike that of Wednesday’s, a heavy cloud cover of 74% is expected with humid conditions are on the cards, according to AccuWeather. The conditions shouldn’t change too much during the course of the match.
The pitch has something in it for both the batsmen and bowlers with scores of around 100 being achieved on a consistent basis. Although the surface has a green look to it, uneven bounce has been a trademark with the pacers also opting for a change of pace. Chasing is the preferred option upon winning the toss with dew expected to play a major role.

Hussain Talat is leading the way with both bat and ball for Flying Oryx. The Pakistan allrounder has 75 runs and a wicket in two games so far. With a strike-rate of 174.42, Talat is certainly one to watch out for. Canadian, Saad bin Zafar has impressed with the ball in the Qatar T10 League 2019. With three wickets in three games, Saad bin Zafar is Falcon Hunter’s best bet with the ball.
Although Hashim Amla is by far the most distinguished batsmen among all teams in the tournament, he hasn’t scored many runs for the Falcon Hunters. He is due for a big one with the Hunters looking to seal a semi-final spot.
