Qatar T10 League 2019, Match 15: Heat Stormers vs Pearl Gladiators And SportsMonks Fantasy XI

Match 15 between Heat Stormers and Pearl Gladiators in the Qatar T10 League 2019 will mark an end to the group stage of the tournament. After this game, the top four teams who will make it to the knockout stages will be decided. However, it is quite certain that Heat Stormers and Pearl Gladiators are almost out of the tournament. 

For Pearl Gladiators the final two games are must-wins for them to make any claims of making it to the final four. Plus they need to win by big margins to get above the other teams in the points table. They were bowled out for 67 chasing a target of 116 to win against the Swift Gallopers which highlights their inexperience in the batting department. 

Despite the likes of Ajantha Mendis, Mohammad Sami and Mohammad Irfan all in the team, they looked well below-par to pose any threat to their opposition. The bowling attack not clicking in the tournament is one of the biggest reason why the Gladiators are at the bottom of the points table.

Their opponents on this game, the Heat Stormers also have failed to play as a group in the game. Manpreet Gony has failed to inspire the team as a skipper and their players have failed to perform. They have lost their last two games by big margins ( by 66 runs against Swift Gallopers and by 5 wickets against Desert Riders) are now potentially out of the reckoning for the playoffs. 

The last game, therefore, will be a mere formality for the Stormers. Losing three games out of the four played so far, the Stormers have had found no time to make a turnaround in the tournament. 

Therefore with all the three teams at the bottom of the table virtually out of the tournament, the last two matches are virtually dead rubbers.
