The ICC Academy Summer Cup 2022 has swiftly moved to its culmination. With only five matches left, teams are scrambling to book their berth in the semi-final.
Match 16th brings two such teams who are out of the qualifying places and none have the opportunity to get into the semi-final even if they win the upcoming match. Playing for pride remains the sole purpose of this match now. Let’s look at all the details of match 16th of the ICC Academy Summer Cup.
Match 16: Dubai Gymkhana vs Dubai Dare Devils
Match 16th brings the third and fifth-placed teams against each other. Dubai Dare Devils are at third with two points in three matches. Meanwhile, the Dubai Gymkhana languish at the bottom without a single win.
The Rahul Soni-led DDD looked like getting on track after a win in their second match but lost again in their third match to find themselves out of contention for the Semi-final. DDD’s bowling has proved to be the Achilles heel, having allowed massive targets to be set against them. Their bowling will have to improve massively if they’re to win this next match.
Dubai Gymkhana finds itself in a worse situation as they are winless so far. The Waqas Ahmed Khan-led side has struggled on both fronts and has been outclassed in all of their three matches so far. Zeevan Gangadharan and Waqas Ahmed Khan will have to come good with the bat if DGA has any chance to win this match.
Dubai Gymkhana Probable XI: Syed Aashir, Mohammad Shahir (wk), Muhammad Hassan, Waqass Ahmed Khan (c), Shajat Talat, Jeevan Gangadharan, Bilal Azmat, Varun Arora, Muhammad Abid Nini, Tashfen Yasin, Muhammad Asnan Qaisar
Dubai Dare Devils Probable XI: Mohamed Nashir Saipillai, Abhay Jotin, Rahul Soni (c), Haroon Ghaus, Abdul Aziz Mohd Rashid, Rathesh Poojari, Akshay Jotin, Mohit Raghav, Farhan Hanif, Adarsh Desai, Abdul Safar
