Emirates D20: Semi Final 1 & 2- Preview, Probable XIs, Pitch Report, Match Details, and Updates

Emirates D20

After 15 days of high-quality league games, the Emirates D20 has finally found its four worthy contenders. Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, and Sharjah have moved onto the semi-final stages after their impressive performance in the league stage.

All of these four teams will now play in the semi-final of the Emirates D20 Championship on 27th June 2022. Let’s look at all the details regarding these games.

Semi-Final 1: Ajman Vs Abu Dhabi

The second and third-placed teams would be the first to go against each other in the first semi-final of Emirates D20 2022. Ajman with five wins in 10 games and Abu Dhabi with similar points aggregate sat near each other for the most part in league stages. Now, however, it would be only one of them who could get a place in the final.

If their last game is any indication, Ajman would go through as they dominated Abu Dhabi in their last meeting. Ajman made 132/10 while batting first and contained the Abu Dhabi side at just 92/10, winning the game by 40 runs.

However, what has happened in the past matters very less in a cricket match and it would be an even affair between these two teams when they meet in the semi-final. Only the best performer on that day would move forward.

Ajman Probable XI: Yasir Kaleem (WK)(C), Sandeep Singh, Hameed Khan, Ansh Tandon, Nav Pabreja, Hafeez ur Rehman, Shahnawaz Khan, Nasir Aziz, Sultan Ahmad, Muhammad Azhar, Luqman Hazrat

Abu Dhabi Probable XI: Attah ur Rahim, Ghulam Farid, Mohammad Kamran Atta (WK), Ali Abid(C), Muhammad Uzair Khan, Adnan Danish, Osama Hassan, Fayyaz Ahmed, Mazhar Bashir, Zia Mukhtar

Semi-Final 2: Fujairah vs Sharjah

The second semi-final of the Emirates D20 Championship brings table-toppers Fujairah against Sharjah. Fujairah, with 16 points in 10 matches, were a cut above the rest for the entirety of the league stage. Sharjah, meanwhile got into the semi-final, with 10 points in 10 games.

In their last game, Fujairah beat Sharjah by a massive seven wickets and they would be looking to do the same in the semi-final as well. Sharjah, led by Fayyaz Ahmad, would need to take all their chances if they are to win this game.

Fujairah Probable XI: Muhammad Waseem (c), Hamdan Tahir (wk), Usman Khan, Rohan Mustafa, Asif Khan, Vishnu Sukumaran, Maroof Merchant, Kashif Daud, Umair Ali, Zahid Ali, Saqib Manshad

Sharjah Probable XI: Fayyaz Ahmad (c), Khalid Shah, Amjad Gul, Aayan Khan, Basil Hameed, Zahoor Khan, Abdul Shakoor(wk), Danish Qureshi, Muhammad Zahid, Ameer Hamza, Aryan Saxena
