Qatar T10 League 2019, Match 5: Falcon Hunters vs Swift Gallopers Preview And Dream XI Predictions

The fifth match of the Qatar T10 League 2019 is between two teams who were at the end of opposite results after their first game. While Falcon Hunters won their first game, the Swift Gallopers unfortunately lost. With every match in the league being important, both these teams will go all-out for a win, especially the Gallopers who are fifth on the points table at the moment. 

With big hitters in both teams, this match in the Qatar T10 League 2019, is expected to be a high-scoring one. While the Hunters have the likes of Salman Butt, Hashim Amla, Babar Hayat and Mohammad Rizlan, the Gallopers have Imran Nazir, Kamran Akman, Luke Wright and Danza Hyatt. Bowlers from both sides will be surely under the pump, to restrict the batsmen from hitting big shots.

Discarded Pakistan cricketers Imran Nazir and Kamran Akmal would like to perform in the Qatar T10 League 2019, to get back into the reckoning for national selection for the upcoming World T20 in Australia next year. Both Nazir and Akmal were members of Pakistan’s World T20 world cup winning squad in England in 2009.

As for Salman Butt, who is away from the Pakistan cricket team ever since his ban for match-fixing, this is yet another opportunity to make some noise for national selection. Pakistan who were recently whitewashed in the two-match Test series down under is going through a transitional phase and at this crunch moment, the return of these senior cricketers will be a boon for the side. 

Packed with renowned batters, both sides miss the firepower in their bowling attacks. The Hunters will be led with the ball by Iqbal Hussain, who is a right-arm medium pacer. Bangladesh’s Murad Khan will bring in his spinning potential for the side. The Gallopers on the other hand, has Chaturanga de Silva, the Sri Lankan all-rounder with Qatar pacer Syed Tameem. Sufyan Mehmood and Gayan Wimalashantha will play the supporting role. 

The pitch at the Asian Town Stadium has not produced high-scoring encounters so far and as discussed above, the teams playing in this game today might just change that equation.
