Match Preview for QAL vs TAD Dream11 contest:
The Qalandars will take on Team Abu Dhabi in the Eliminator 1 of the 2021 T10 League on February 5th at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi at 7:45 PM IST.
The Qalandars were unbeaten in the tournament till they were halted in their tracks by an inspired Delhi Bulls side. This loss saw them slip into the third position and play a knockout game.
Team Abu Dhabi, on the other hand, are coming on the back of sensational performances in their last two games. Both their openers Chris Gayle and Paul Stirling have fired and they will be in good stead ahead of Eliminator 1.
QAL vs TAD Dream11 Prediction:
Although Qalandars beat Team Abu Dhabi in the last encounter that these teams faced-off, the latter will have a psychological advantage going into the Eliminator, given their winning form. The Qalandars’ morale could be a bit low as they expected to finish in the top two spots but that couldn’t happen.

Ben Dunk, Sohail Akhtar, Chris Gayle, Tom Banton, Luke Wright, Paul Stirling, Chris Jordan, Jamie Overton, Ahmad Daniyal, Obed McCoy, Tom Helm
Captain: Chris Gayle
The Universe Boss Chris Gayle missed out in the previous game against the Bangla Tigers. However, he will still back himself to deliver a stellar performance in a knockout game.
Vice-captain: Sohail Akhtar
The Qalandars skipper has been in sizzling form this season and has delivered whenever his team needed someone to. Thus, he will be keen to lead from the front in a do-or-die clash and thus will be a fine choice for being the vice-captain of the fantasy cricket team.
QAL vs TAD Dream11 Team for Small League:
Ben Dunk, Ben Duckett, Sohail Akhtar, Chris Gayle, Tom Banton,Paul Stirling, Chris Jordan, Jamie Overton, Ahmad Daniyal, Obed McCoy, Tom Helm
Captain: Tom Banton
Tom Banton has got off to a number of decent starts for the Qalandars this season. However, he hasn’t quite been able to convert those starts into a big score. Nevertheless, this could be his opportunity to go big in Eliminator 1.
Vice-captain: Jamie Overton
England speedster Jamie Overton incredibly picked up four wickets in his two overs against the Bangla Tigers. He will be in top gear to repeat his performance and send his team through to Qualifier 2.
QAL vs TAD Dream11 Team for Mega League:
Ben Dunk, Ben Duckett, Sohail Akhtar, Chris Gayle, Tom Banton,Paul Stirling, Chris Jordan, Jamie Overton, Ahmad Daniyal, Naveen-ul-Haq, Tom Helm
Captain: Paul Stirling
Paul Stirling hit a brilliant 64 runs against the Bangla Tigers. But very few people would bet on the Irishman to deliver such a performance in the very next game against the Qalandars. Thus, he is a great bet to be the captain of the fantasy cricket team.
Vice-captain: Chris Jordan
Chris Jordan is a death-overs specialist and also has the ability to use the long handle. Although he hasn’t had the best of tournaments so far, he could be the man who would deliver for the Qalandars under pressure in the Eliminator 1.
