Match day: Monday
Match date: 21st June
Match time: 6:00 PM PST, 5:00 PM Local GMT
Pitch & weather report:
The pitch of Abu Dhabi has equally been benefitting the bowlers and batsmen. Let it be the chasing team or the batting first team, either of them has gained an advantage in case of playing the best.
The weather is expected to be extremely hot. At the time of initiation at 5:00 PM Local, the temperature will be across 39 degrees celsius with winds blowing around 15-19 km/h. Humidity will be 44-47%.
Notably, both the teams, IU and MS, have reckoned delightful moments through the Robinhood stage. But what differentiates IU from others is their well-beingness as they have conquered 8 out of 10 encounters. With the five consecutive triumphs, United may be underdogs tomorrow facing Sultans. But, they will be left with an additional chance as they will be progressed to Eliminator 2 in case of a defeat to face the winners of Eliminator 1.
Moreover, Sultans have been defeated twice under United in the going on season, hence, they may look to break the losing streak giving tough challenges to the Red Hot squad.
