The 15th Match of Qatar T10 League 2019 will be played between the Heat Stormers and Pearl Gladiators 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 and CricTracker’s Youtube channel in India.
The final league game of the Qatar T10 League 2019 pits Heat Stormers up against the Pearl Gladiators. With only one point against their names, both sides rely on Flying Oryx losing their match against Swift Gallopers to stay alive in the competition. They haven’t won a game so far in the league.
Heat Stormers were unlucky to end up on the losing end with Desert Riders running riot with the bat. Although Pearl Gladiators have a decent amount of experience, they haven’t been able to click as a unit which has lead to their downfall. A close contest is on the cards with both sides capable of coming up with the goods on Saturday.
The weather forecast is clear for this game with the temperature hovering around 22 degrees Celsius. A clod cover of 22% along with 82% humidity is expected according to AccuWeather. The conditions should remain the same for the entire duration of the match.
The pitch is a competitive one with the average first innings score being 104. While scores of 100 were initially less in number, teams are now able to score in excess of the par score and defend them as well. Nevertheless, chasing is still the more popular option and shouldn’t be any different for this game.
