Singapore faces Kenya in the 24th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers. Both these sides have had a completely contrasting set of results. Singapore began the campaign by registering two consecutive victories but suffered a humbling defeat at the hands of the Netherlands in their last game. On the complete contrary, Kenya completed their first triumph against Bermuda after facing defeats in both their opening two games. Nonetheless, this promises to be a highly entertaining encounter between two well-matched sides.
ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier
Singapore vs Kenya
23rd October 2019
3:40 PM IST
ICC Academy Ground No.2, Dubai
Bright sunny conditions with absolutely no chances of rain showers and temperature ranging around the mid-thirties expected during the course of the game.
The surface will be a decent batting track but will slow down considerably as the match progresses. Thus, batting first would be the logical decision on winning the toss.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Surendran Chandramohan and Timothy David are of paramount importance from the batting perspective along with wicket-keeper Manpreet Singh, who will be expected to facilitate the smooth flow of runs in the middle stages of the inning. Selladore Vijayakumar is a vital bowler for his side and should pick up a couple of wickets in this match.
Surendran Chandramohan, Timothy David, Aritra Dutta, Manpreet Singh (wk), Navin Param, Janak Prakash, Sidhant Singh, Amjad Mahboob (c), Selladore Vijayakumar, Vinoth Bhaskaran, Aahan Gopinath Achar
Dhiren Gondaria and Collins Obuya are the pillars of the batting unit and will be relied upon to score the bulk of the runs. Skipper Shem Ngoche can contribute with both bat and bowl whereas Nelson Odhiambo should offer impetus with the bowl in hand.
Irfan Karim (WK), Alex Obanda, Dhiren Gondaria, Collins Obuya, Rakep Patel, Rushab Patel, Shem Ngoche (C), Jasraj Kundi, Nelson Odhiambo, Lucas Oluoch, Elijah Otieno.
Dhiren Gondaria put in an exemplary performance in his side’s win over Bermuda by plundering 85 off 67 balls. He should be the first name on the teamsheet and has to be offered the role of captaincy or vice-captaincy in the fantasy side. Collins Obuya is also a must-have considering his dual expertise. He has 83 runs under his belt and has picked up 8 wickets in this campaign, including a four-fer in the last game. For Singapore, Navin Param and Surendra Chandramohan would be wise additions and will certainly accumulate plenty of points for your Dream11 Team.
