Sharjah Warriors (SJH) and Gulf Giants (GUL) will face off in the final group stage match of the ongoing ILT20 2023 on Monday, February 6. Gulf, led by James Vince, have already advanced to the next round of the top-tier league and lead the points table with 14 wins in nine games.
Sharjah Warriors, on the other hand, are struggling to maintain their place in the event’s final four, as they face stiff competition from Dubai Capitals. With seven points each, Dubai and Sharjah are currently at the bottom of the points table.
Sharjah will be looking not only for a win in the final game, but also for a massive result given their net run rate of -0.399. It remains to be seen whether Moeen Ali and company can finish last in the elimination rounds or if Gulf Giants maintain their dominance in the league phase.
