ILT20 Qualifier 1 EMI vs GUL Dream11 Prediction: MI Emirates will take the Gulf Giants in Qualifier 1 (Playoff Match 2) of the International League T20 2024.
ILT20 Qualifier 1 MI vs GG Dream11: Preview
While the MI Emirates have been the best team in this tournament, they will be entering the playoffs in the worst form possible, a two-match losing streak. Despite that, the Emirates had the joint-best record in the league with six wins and thus finished on top. That means that they will play in Qualifier 1, which ensures them two opportunities to make it to the final.
Gulf Giants’ late resurgence in ILT20 2024 saw them from being a team teetering around the edge of playoff contention to having the joint-best record on the league table. Their four wins in their last four matches mean they too have won six matches in the tournament, and thus finished second.

ILT20 Qualifier 1 MI vs GG Dream11: Pitch Report
The pitches of the Dubai International Stadium are surprisingly not the most 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. This might make the conditions here some of the most challenging for the batters in this tournament.
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.

While performances in the league are essential for making it to the playoffs, once in the endgame, none of your previous performances matter. It is anybody’s game in Qualifier 1. The Match is being played in Dubai, this is one of the grounds in the tournament not much affected by the toss, which means the best team on the night will win.
When these two teams competed last week in Match 26 of ILT20 2024, Gulf Giants won a close contest by 5 runs. But the MI Emirates has been too good in this tournament to not make it to the final. We predict they will win this match and become the first team this year to reserve their booking for the final.
