Virender Sehwag-led Gemini Arabians are probably the strongest side in the Masters Champions League (MCL) T20 2016, as they have gone on to win both their matches comprehensively.
It is time for Capricorn Commanders to face the upbeat Arabians in Match No.7 of the MCL at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.
Both sides are coming into this match on the back of victories. But it is going to be a tough challenge for Paul Collingwood and his Capricorn Commanders.
Commanders clinched a thrilling three-run victory against Sagittarius Strikers in their last game. Having lost their first match of the MCL against the Leo Lions, the win against the Sagittarius Strikers gave them a lot of cofidence ahead of Wednesday's clash against the Gemini Arabians.
Meanwhile, Arabians are on a roll in the first edition of the MCL. Their top four batsmen -- Sehwag, Richard Levi, Kumar Sangakkara and Brad Hodge -- have been in top form. The Arabians also have the legendary spin duo of Muttiah Muralitharan and Saqlain Mushtaq in their ranks. Muralitharan was on fire in the last match, as he bagged four wickets in his spell of four overs, while conceding just 19 runs.
In order to win this game, the Capricorn Commanders will have to remove the top four Geimni Arabians batsmen as quickly as possible.
Squads: Gemini Arabians: Virender Sehwag (C),Graham Onions, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Muttiah Muralitharan, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Brad Hodge, Saqlain Mushtaq, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Jacques Rudolph, Richard Levi, Justin Kemp, Paul Harris, Kyle Mills, Ashish Bagai, Saqib Ali.
