KAT vs QAL Dream11 Prediction for today’s match: In what is a do-or-die game for both sides on Thursday, Qalandars and Karnataka Tuskers take centre-stage at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Both teams have won just one game so far with neither side able to restrict opponents for scoring huge scores. While Qalandars look formidable on paper, their batsmen haven’t fired in unison which has already cost them a few games. On the other hand, Karnataka Tuskers have looked solid in each match although Hashim Amla and his men haven’t been clinical when required to be so. Nevertheless, both teams are eyeing a crucial win and should give their best efforts to stay alive in the competition

Probable Playing XI
The Qalandars should also field a similar side to the one that lost to the Maratha Arabians. Dawid Malan and Tom Banton have already registered fifties in the T10 League 2019 so far although they will want Luke Ronchi to give them a flying start in the powerplay overs. They have ample batting depth with Jordan Clark providing the balance in the side. The trio of Lahiru Kumara, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Chris Jordan will be expected to deliver in this must-win clash on Thursday.
Tom Banton, Luke Ronchi, Dawid Malan, Philip Salt, Laurie Evans, Seekuge Prasanna, Jordan Clark, Chris Jordan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Lahiru Kumara, George Garton and Sultan Ahmed.
Karnataka Tuskers saw their game getting cancelled due to a drizzle. No changes are expected from the side that played against Maratha Arabians with a lot riding on the shoulders of Evin Lewis and Johnson Charles. While Hashim Amla has some runs under his belt as well, he has been sedated in the latter overs which has troubled the team. Better performances with the ball are in order with Sandeep Lamichhane and Kesrick Williams being key for them.
Hashim Amla, Evin Lewis, Johnson Charles, Ross Whiteley, Ryan ten Doeschate, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Nathan Rimmington, Ahmed Raza, Sandeep Lamichhane, Shapoor Zadran and Kesrick Williams
Top Picks for KAT vs QAL Dream11 Team:
Evin Lewis and Tom Banton are the two of the most explosive openers in the tournament. With their talent and ability to tee off from ball one taken into account, both of them are must-haves alongside Dawid Malan. Ahmed Raza had picked five wickets in four games for Karnataka Tuskers. He also finds a place in the side with Johnson Charles also expected to make an impact for them. Two spinners, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane should enjoy the conditions at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium while Kesrick Williams is one to watch out for after a decent first outing in this year’s T10 League.
