The Sharjah Warriors are the slight favorites at all the best cricket betting sites but as we have seen, the difference between any of the teams is not too much.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Sharjah Warriors vs Dubai Capitals IL T20 2023. The match will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah on the 26th of January 2023.
SW vs DBC Team Previews
The Sharjah Warriors have batted well in their previous couple of matches. Tom Kohler-Cadmore seems to have hit some form and the addition of Joe Denly to the batting lineup is also paying dividends. With Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Dawid Malan, and Moeen Ali also in the lineup, the Sharjah Warriors certainly have the batting strength to be able to come out the winners in this match as well.
Naveen ul Haq picked up five wickets in the previous match and really showed us all of his tricks. He has been excellent for the Sharjah Warriors alongside Chris Woakes. Junai Siddique, Noor Ahmad, and Muhammad Jawadullah all round out the bowling lineup for the Sharjah Warriors. This could be a potential area of concern if the Dubai Capitals bat well.
Sharjah Warriors Playing 11
Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Evin Lewis, Tom Kohler Cadmore, Joe Denly, Muhammad Jawad Ullah, Adam Hose, Mohammad Nabi, Paul Walter, Noor Ahmad, Junaid Siddique, Naveen ul Haq.
Rovman Powell and Joe Root batted with complete freedom to lead the Dubai Capitals to 222 in their 20 overs. Rovman Powell smashed 10 sixes in his 41-ball inning, ending on 97 not out. It is also so great to see Joe Root play with new-found freedom and really take to the T20 format.
The dependence of the batting lineup on Root and Powell cannot be overstated, though. The rest of the batting lineup has struggled and we think having Robin Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan in the lineup is a big negative.
The bowling lineup for the Dubai Capitals is also quite weak and completely banks on Mujeeb ur Rahman to stem the flow of runs, pick up wickets, and everything else!
Dubai Capitals Playing 11
Rovman Powell, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Hazratullah Zazai, Dan Lawrence, Yusuf Pathan, Sikandar Raza, Dasun Shanaka, Luqman Hazrat, Fred Klaassen, Jake Ball, Raja Akifullah Khan .

Pitch and Conditions
There is no rain forecast in Sharjah and so we should have no trouble getting a full match. The pitch at Sharjah is a bit slow and can be difficult to score on. The small dimensions of the boundary counteract that but still allow the bowlers to dominate. A score of around 150 should be seen as par.
SW vs DBC Betting Tips
We think the Sharjah Warriors have a great chance of winning this match. They have a better T20 squad with all aspects of the game covered. While the Dubai Capitals have some dangerous hitters in their team, we think they are lacking the kind of balance that will allow them to compete on a regular basis.
Bet on the Sharjah Warriors to win.
