DES vs PEA Dream11 Team Prediction: After a disappointing loss in the opening fixture of the Qatar T10 League, Pearl Gladiators hope to kickstart their faltering campaign as they square off against Desert Riders. Unlike their opponents, Desert Riders are in fine form. With the experience of Sohail Tanvir and Mohammad Hafeez coming to the fore, Desert Riders have emerged as one of the early favorites to win the trophy. Although Pearl Gladiators are the underdogs for this game, one can expect a competitive game between the two sides with valuable points hanging in the balance on Tuesday.
Desert Riders vs Pearl Gladiators, Match 6
December 10th, 9:00 PM IST
West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha
The pitch is a touch slow with the 100 being a very competitive score at the venue. The pacers are also getting some swing to play around within the powerplay overs. Chasing is the obvious choice for both sides with dew playing a factor in the second half of the game.
The weather should be clear for the duration of this game with the temperature hovering around 26 degrees Celsius. A few clouds are also expected to make an appearance with bouts of rain expected throughout the day as well.
No injuries were reported
Probable Playing XI
The Desert Riders should field an unchanged side for this game as well after a good outing against the Flying Oryx. Mohammad Hafeez and Adnan Mirza have forged a formidable partnership at the top of the order with Tanveer and Malindu providing the impetus in the middle overs. Their bowling unit has also impressed in spite of Sohail Tanvir looking a bit off-colour. The onus will be on Awais Malik and Ajay Lalcheta to contain the Pearl Gladiators in the middle overs if they are to win this game.

In spite of a loss in their opening game, no changes are expected of the Pearl Gladiators side with much expected of their batting unit in this game. Faisal Javed did score some runs at the top of the order but couldn’t get them quickly. The other players such as Sohaib Maqsood and Mehran Khan will need to come up with the big hits to propel them to a match-winning total on Tuesday.
