ILT20 Eliminator AD vs DC Dream11: Preview
Abu Dhabi Knight Riders finished third in the league table, and have thus made it to the playoffs of ILT20 for the first time in history. Playing in the Eliminator match, they will have to win two matches just to make it to the final, and three if they are to lift the trophy. The team have seen major ups and downs this season but is now in the playoffs, where the form of the team in the league matters not, only how they play on a particular day.
Dubai Capitals finished fourth in the league table and are the second team in the Eliminator. While they looked like the team to beat at the start of the season, they fell off a cliff in the middle stages of the league, before pulling back up at just the right moment. The team most affected by players leaving on international duty, the Capitals will be hoping for three good days in order to win the tournament.

ILT20 Eliminator AD vs DC Dream11: Pitch Report
The pitches of the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium are made for T20 cricket. That is to say that they are great for batting and do not deteriorate within the span of 40 overs
However, this stadium sees a lot of dew fall later in the evening, which makes batting second a lot easier than putting up a score.
