Right then. It’s time. And much like the name should suggest, the Eliminator is upon us. Four days. Three games. One title.
Over this last month, every player in our XI has made his presence felt at some stage. We’ve won matches clinically, scraped through, have stolen victories from the jaws of defeat, have stumbled on the odd occasion, but importantly, we’ve gone from strength to strength and have picked up momentum at the right time.
Level 1: The Dubai Capitals stand in between. Let’s not take them lightly, they’ve beaten us twice in this season. And in both cases, it’s their batting that has won it for them. We are in their backyard now as well. It’s a stiff challenge, but this is precisely what big matches are made of. This is where the big players stand up. Oh and we have plenty of them.
What: MI Emirates vs Dubai Capitals
When: Thursday (February 9 2023)
Where: Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
What to expect: Pressure. Runs. Dew. Entertainment. All in equal measure. Remember, the winner goes into the second qualifier. The loser goes home.
