MI Emirates will take on Gulf Giants in the third match of International League T20 2024 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on January 21, Sunday.
MI Emirates started their campaign on a losing note over Dubai Capitals by seven wickets. Muhammad Waseem was the standout batter as he scored 51 runs off 26 balls with two fours and four sixes. Trent Boult was the star bowler with two wickets. However, with the target set by their batters not potent enough, they had to face a defeat.
On the other hand, the Gulf Giants started with a win over the Sharjah Warriors by 31 runs in their season opener. Openers Jamie Smith (42) and James Vince (45) were the star batters for the Giants. Jamie Overton starred with the ball, scalping three crucial wickets and steering the side to win.
