Dubai Capitals Cruise Past Gulf Giants to Secure ILT20 Final Berth:

News by “Sana Ullah”

In a dominant display, Dubai Capitals booked their spot in the ILT20 final with a convincing nine-wicket victory over Gulf Giants in the second Qualifier held in Sharjah.

Despite Gulf Giants’ captain James Vince opting to bat first, his team struggled against a disciplined Capitals’ bowling attack, managing only 138/6 in their allotted overs.

Hard-hitting opener Usman Khan provided a brisk start for the Giants, but a top-order collapse ensued, leaving them at 40/4 in 7.2 overs. Vince and Chris Jordan steadied the innings, but the captain’s departure in the penultimate over halted their progress. Vince top-scored with a gritty 58, while Jordan contributed a crucial 30.

In response, the Capitals comfortably chased down the target with Leus du Plooy leading the charge with a blistering half-century. Du Plooy’s 63 off 40 balls, supported by Tom Banton’s 38, guided the Capitals to victory with ease.

The Capitals will now face MI Emirates in the ILT20 final, set to take place on Saturday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
