ILT20 Match 27 DES vs DUB Dream11 Prediction: Desert Vipers will take on defending champions the Dubai Capitals in Match 15 of the International League T20 2024
ILT20 Match 27 DV vs DC Dream11: Preview
The finalists from the last season statistically have the joint worst record in the league this year. In their eight matches, the Desert Vipers have won only three matches. While this makes them one of four teams in the tournament with three wins, their decent net run rate (-0.298) means they are clinging on to the final playoff spot at the moment.
While Dubai Capitals might have the same number of wins as the Desert Vipers with one match in hand, they are currently below them in the league in fifth. This makes this match extremely crucial for both teams, as a loss here might as well spell doom for the team in ILT20 2024.

ILT20 Match 27 DV vs DC Dream11: Pitch Report
The pitches of the Dubai International Stadium are surprisingly not batter-friendly, with the average T20 score being around 150-160. The boundaries too aren’t the smallest here, with it being over 70m down the ground.
The pace support provided by this pitch makes it much more difficult to score big runs. But history has shown that if the side batting first gets to a big score, the sides chasing usually capitulate under pressure.
