One team has to end the winning streak
At the start of the tournament, no one would have thought the contest between the Netherlands and Singapore would be this exciting as one of the team will end their winning streak on Tuesday in Dubai. Forget about an exciting contest, Singapore is rated as the underdogs of the tournament. Their victory against Zimbabwe leading into the Qualifiers is considered as a one-off performance but in this tournament, they proved it otherwise. On the other hand, the Netherlands which is considered as hot favorites given the star power in the line up has lived up to its expectations with dominating performances.
Both sides are likely to stick with the winning combination.
The surface at ICC Academy in Dubai has been good for batting, at the same time has also offered enough for bowlers. So expect a cracker of a game if both sides use it to good effect.
He is the most consistent performer for Singapore in the tournament and is also leading into it. He has a PPM of 60 and an MDTA of 1.25 in the last 5 matches. His 3 wicket haul in the last game restricted Namibia to a decent total if not it would have been very different.
He is yet to come up with his best in the tournament but he was a crucial part of Singapore’s line up leading into the tournament. He has a PPM of 61 and an MDTA of 1.25 in the last few matches.
He may have been dismissed without scoring any runs in the last match, but he has given the team good starts and also scored vital knocks before. On Tuesday there is every chance he may bounce back if he can see off the early movement from pacers.
In the first match, he might have settled for a low score but in the second he has come up with match-defining innings at a crucial situation. His experience of playing tons of T20s makes him a must-have.
He is the most consistent bowler for the Netherlands on the tour where he has come up with back to back 3 wicket hauls. He has a PPM of 58 in the last 5 matches and 85 on the tour.
