Match 8 | MIEvDV: Avenging the final-ball loss on the cards

By MI Emirates Media

We’re back in our den, we’re back to winning ways, and we’ve quickly been given the avenue to get back. It was a thrilling encounter against the Desert Vipers the last time we met them, sure, but it ended in a heartbreak, thanks to a thick outside-edge from Shaheen Afridi that got them three runs off the final ball. It’s time to set it right. 

In a season where MI Emirates have won six of their first eight games are sitting nicely at the top of the table, breaking away as well from the rest of the group, where one more win should more or less guarantee us a place in the play-offs, it’d be nice to settle scores against the Vipers, who mind you, are coming off a win themselves against the Gulf Giants. It’s been some campaign for us though, where every game has thrown up a new hero, with the rest of the cast playing their roles to perfection around them. It’s time to unleash another in the afternoon heat of the desert..

What: MI Emirates vs Desert Vipers

When: February 4, 2024 | 2:30pm local, 4:00pm IST

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi 

What to expect: It’s been a cold few days in the UAE, weather wise. But given that this is a 2:30pm start, expect it to be steaming, much like the action!
