Gulf Giants vs. MI Emirates match 24

The 24th game of the DP World ILT20 League turned out to be the most thrilling contest of the season. Gulf Giants emerged victorious in a last-ball finish against the MI Emirates. Let’s see how this game shaped up and how the Sportiqo market has changed after the match.


Match 24: Gulf Giants vs. MI Emirates


Gulf Giants 143 for 5 (Banton 45, Jordan 3/12 (37%)) beat MI Emirates 139 all out (Pooran 42, Bravo 2/32 (7%)) by 5 wickets.


The MI Emirates batted first, and they had a fascinating start to their innings. Dominic Drakes dismissed Andre Fletcher(21%) on the second ball of the opening over after being hit for a boundary on the first one. The second wicket fell for 27 in the 4th over, and it brought Nicholas Pooran to the crease. His 42 runs in just 29 deliveries were the only standout batting performance for the Emirates.

After his dismissal, MI Emirates scored just 41 runs in 45 balls. Chris Jordan(37%) was phenomenal yet again as he picked up 3 wickets in 3.5 overs while giving only 12 runs. Gulf Giants were asked to chase down 140 runs in 20 overs.

The chase started with a 61-run opening stand which came in exactly 9 overs. Tom Banton scored 45, and James Vince managed 26. They both fell in quick succession, and then Chris Lynn and Gerhard Erasmus added 42 runs for the 3rd wicket. With just 28 needed off the final 4 overs, it looked like a cakewalk for the Giants.

But, the next two overs went for just 10 runs, leaving the chasing side 18 to get off 12. Dwayne Bravo(7%) bowled a superb 19th over that went for just 7 runs. With 11 required in the final over, Jordan Thomspon conceded just 8 in the first 5 deliveries and didn’t give away any boundary. The equation was reduced to 3 of 1, and Shimron Hetmyer(0%) deposited the final ball into the stands to win a thriller.

After this win, the Gulf Giants became the 2nd team (Desert Vipers were the 1st) to seal their place in the playoffs. Abu Dhabi Knight Riders are out of the final 4 race, while MI Emirates, Dubai Capitals, and Sharjah Warriors will fight for the remaining two slots.
