Match 6 | DVvMIE Preview: More on the wishlist: Five wins in a row!

By MI Emirates Media

W, W, W, W. Dominance, class, composure, and a million reasons to smile. MI Emirates have been everything we asked for, and more. We’re into the second half of the tournament, and we are on a mission to not lose steam. Much like our buildups for our earlier games, let’s just state it: every game has produced a new hero with everyone playing crucial supporting acts. It’s the hallmark of a team in solid form, and let’s just do everything in our powers to maintain our onfield juggernaut. 


What we do need to be wary of, is a pretty desperate Desert Vipers side, who after three losses in their four games, would be inspired to turn things around. We are in their den, and Dubai International Cricket Stadium is the only stadium where we haven’t won a game yet. It’s time we correct that as well!

This is also the first time these two teams are meeting in this season’s ILT20. The head-to-head record stands at 1-1, with the Desert Vipers having won by seven wickets in the first game of the 2023 season, before MI Emirates bounced back in typical style with a 157-run win, thanks to a 19-ball fifty by Kieron Pollard, and the ever-reliable Muhammad Waseem blasting his way to a 44-ball 86. 

What: Desert Vipers vs MI Emirates

When: January 30, 2024 | 6:30pm local time, 8:00pm IST

Where: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai

What to expect: Dubai has produced runfests, and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have another one when these two sides square off. If you happen to be in the stands, keep your helmets handy.
