DG vs TAD T10 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
Deccan Gladiators will take on Team Abu Dhabi at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Match 2 of the 2022 Abu Dhabi T10 gets underway at 18:15 local time.
The 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 Champions, Deccan Gladiators, get their defence underway in this match. They topped the group stage before winning the qualifier and the final. This year they are coached by Mushtaq Ahmed and captained by Nicholas Pooran who has just stood down from leading West Indies.
Pooran is a very attacking player and he will enjoy playing in this tournament after a very disappointing T20 World Cup for his side in Australia. Alongside him, Will Smeed, who recently retired from red-ball cricket, will look to carry his fine form from the 2022 Men’s Hundred into this match.
Deccan Gladiators have excellent variety in their bowling attack and batters will struggle to settle against them. Experienced spinner Tabraiz Shamsi will get spin and bounce on this pitch alongside Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Quick bowler Taskin Ahmed impressed in the T20 World Cup for Bangladesh.
Deccan Gladiators ended the 2021 tournament with three successive wins.
Team Abu Dhabi
Former England assistant coach, Paul Fairbrace, will coach Team Abu Dhabi who have got a strong number of English players in their squad. Last year they finished in third place in the group stage and third place in the competition.
We expect the bulk of Team Abu Dhabi’s runs to come from the bats of captain Chris Lynn, Alex Hales and Brandon King in this match. England’s Phil Salt and James Vince will both be valuable additions to the side when they arrive after the conclusion of the ODI series in Australia.
Pace bowlers, Mustafizur Rahman and Andrew Tye, will both enjoy the speed of the wicket in Abu Dhabi and will be two of the quickest in the tournament. Spinners, Fabian Allen and Peter Hatzoglou have both picked up plenty of experience in franchise cricket over recent seasons.
Team Abu Dhabi won only one of their final four games in the 2021 Abu Dhabi T10..

Deccan Gladiators vs Team Abu Dhabi Prediction
We expect this game to be played at a high pace with the line-ups of both teams full of big hitting players throughout their batting orders. Deccan Gladiators were the strongest team last year and Team Abu Dhabi are missing a couple of their top batters for this game. For that reason, we are backing Deccan Gladiators to win.
