The first semi-final of the Qatar T10 League is going to be played between the Falcon Hunters and the Desert Riders. Both of these teams have been among the strongest we have seen the winner of this match could well go on to win the title.
While the Falcon Hunters won their previous match quite comfortably on the back of a strong batting performance, the Desert Riders played out of their skins to chase down 135 off the very last ball of the match.
Two in-form teams are going to lock horns with each other and should be able to provide another thrilling spectacle.
Falcon Hunters vs Desert Riders Qatar T10 League 1st Semi-Final is going to be played at the West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha on the 15th of December 2019.
The strong batting attack of the Falcon Hunters showed its class once again as they scored 118 in their previous match batting first. Salman Butt gave the side a decent start with 39 runs to his name and was helped by Kamran Khan.
Hashim Amla failed to get going but his mere presence is always a threat and he could make up for it in the semi-final.
The real impetus in the inning was provided by Mohammad Rizlan who smashed 4 sixes and three fours in the nine balls he faced. It was an inning of brutal power that ensured the Falcon Hunters finished with more than enough on the board.
This batting lineup is capable of beating any other side including the Desert Riders. They certainly have more depth than the Desert Rider sin our opinion.
Kamran Khan, Waqas Maqsood, Amad Butt, and Iqbal Hussian have been bowling pretty well in recent matches. These bowlers may not be of international quality but they have learned how to bowl at the current venue and are pretty effective on their day.

Chasing down 135 is not an easy task and that performance would have given them a lot of confidence ahead of the semi-final. Perhaps the most impressive part about that chase was that Mohammad Hafeez did not contribute in any significant manner.
Kithuruwan Vithanage and Adnan Mirza scored 42 and 52 respectively to make the chase possible. Considering the fact that Muhammad Tanveer has been one of the best batsmen for the Desert Riders, and he too did not score runs in this match, the potential for the Desert Riders to put in another strong batting performance is definitely there.
Sohail Tanvir has been a bit disappointing as an all-rounder and we were expecting more from him in the batting department. His bowling has also not been the best and he needs to raise his game for the semi-final.
Awais Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Ajay Lalcheta, and Muhammad Ikram are the bowlers that have been doing the job for the Desert Riders so far. The advantage that the Desert Riders have over the Falcon Hunters is the presence of international quality in their bowling as well.

There is some rain forecast in Doha on match day and we could have a situation where the match is curtailed or even called off. That would be a huge shame for the two teams involved because that is going to take away the chance of moving to the final on their own steam.
We are hopeful that the rain will hold off for the duration of the match.
The pitch, if we get to see the match, is going to continue to be very good for batting.
A score of around 110 should be considered par.
Both the teams have good batting lineups but we think the Falcon Hunters have the better depth in their side. There is also not too much difference in their bowling attacks so they should end up being more or less the same.
Bet on the Falcon Hunters to win.
