DG vs MA Dream11 Match Preview
It is a battle for pride as both the strugglers Deccan Gladiators as well as the Maratha Arabians face-off against each other in the 22nd game of the 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 League to be played on 4th February at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi at 5:30 PM IST.
The Deccan Gladiators’ morale will be low after they narrowly missed out chasing down a mammoth target of 144 runs against the Northern Warriors in their previous game.
The Maratha Arabians, on the other hand, were hit by a ‘Gayle Storm’ as the Universe Boss made a mockery of the run-chase with a blistering knock of 84.
DG vs MA Dream11 Prediction:
While both the teams are all but out of the race for the next stage of the tournament, Deccan Gladiators have a slight edge due to the firepower in their batting order.

DG vs MA Dream11 Team for Head to Head League:
Mohammad Shahzad, Abdul Shakoor, Cameron Delport, Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Sunil Narine, Anwar Ali, Aaron Summers, Ravi Rampaul, Yamin Ahmadzai
Captain: Mohammad Hafeez
The veteran Pakistan all-rounder has already attained 233 fantasy points this season and has scored a 105 runs in his last two innings. Thus, he is a safe bet to captain the fantasy cricket team.
Vice-captain: Kieron Pollard
With the season almost done and dusted for them, Deccan Gladiators skipper Kieron Pollard will be keen to unleash himself as he will be under no pressure whatsoever.
DG vs MA Dream11 Team for Small League:
Mohammad Shahzad, Abdul Shakoor, Cameron Delport, Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Sunil Narine, Anwar Ali, Zahoor Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Yamin Ahmadzai
Captain: Abdul Shakoor
Although his team has not done well, Abdul Shakoor has been in sensational form at the top of the order. Thus he will be keen on delivering yet another stellar performance and could be a good choice to captain the fantasy cricket team.
Vice-captain: Mohammad Shahzad
The explosive Afghanistan opener on his day can dismantle any bowling attack in the world. He is due a big innings and it could well happen against the Maratha Arabians.
DG vs MA Dream11 Team for Mega League:
Mohammad Shahzad, Abdul Shakoor, Cameron Delport, Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Sunil Narine, Muktar Ali, Zahoor Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Yamin Ahmadzai
Captain: Sunil Narine
The West Indies all-rounder had a poor last game where he was dismissed on a duck and leaked runs with the ball. However, he is well capable of single-handedly winning the game for his team. Thus, it will be a great gamble if it comes off to keep Narine as the captain of the fantasy cricket team.
Vice-captain: Cameron Delport
Although Delport has gained 144 fantasy points this season, he still has not had a breakthrough performance. This could well be his time where he steps up and puts on a big score.
