The Pune Devils and the Deccan Gladiators are going to be playing against each other to kick off their Abu Dhabi T10 2021 campaign. This is going to be the second match of the tournament with more every single day.
As happens with tournaments like these, getting off to a good start and some momentum into your campaign is very important.
Pune Devils vs Deccan Gladiators T10 2021 is going to be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on the 28th of January 2021.
A look at the Pune Devils for this tournament makes it clear that this side is going to need a bit of luck to succeed. The batting is quite weak with only Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Kennar Lewis the two batsmen that seem likely to make an impact.
Sam Billings is in there as well as the wicketkeeper-batsman along with Chadwick Walton to try and shore up the batting.
Thisara Perera is the player that we would love to see bat out of position to try and make the most of his six-hitting talent.
Mohammad Amir leads the bowling lineup and will have support from Hardus Viljoen and Ajantha Mendis.
There are a couple of bright spots to focus on but overall the team is a bit on the weaker side.
Nasir Hossain, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, K Lewis, CAK Walton, Darwish Rasooli, Asif Khan, Karan KC, Hardus Viljoen, Mohammad Amir, Munis Ansari, Sam Wisniewski.
One of the favorites for the tournament, the Deccan Gladiators have some massive names in their lineup. Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine are the two names that stand out when you look at the squad.
Pollard is one of the most dangerous batsmen in world cricket and has been in tremendous form off-late. Sunil Narine is also a very good all-rounder now and can contribute at the top of the order or with the ball.
Colin Ingram, Cameron Delport, Mohammad Shahzad, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa give the Gladiators a very strong batting lineup. They are definitely stronger than the Pune Devils in this regard.
Imran Tahir, Wanindu Hasaranga, Sunil Narine, Aaron Summers, and Ravi Rampaul lead the bowling attack. Just as with the batting, the bowling has tremendous options and looks to be a cut above anything that the Pune Devils will be able to put together.
Kieron Pollard, SP Narine, M Shahzad, Imran Tahir, C Delport, Azam Khan, Imtiaz Ahmed, Aaron Summers, Zahoor Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Prashant Gupta.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. That has been the preferred approach in this format and stats show that it should be regarded as being a big advantage.

The conditions in Abu Dhabi are going to be very good for batting. The pitch is usually a bit slow but the ball is new and will remain hard for the duration of the match. This is why the batsmen can play their shots very easily.
A score of around 90-100 is going to be the minimum that teams look for batting first.
The Deccan Gladiators are the team to back in this contest. They have a stronger batting lineup, more options in their bowling, and a lot more experience to bank upon.
Bet on the Deccan Gladiators to win.
