Gulf Giants vs MI Emirates Preview: The games are coming thick and fast in the inaugural edition of the International League T20 (ILT20). The 17th match will see the Gulf Giants take on the MI Emirates at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

Gulf Giants have won four games out of six and have eight points to their name. They lost to the Sharjah Warriors in their fifth fixture and didn’t have any chance to get back to winning ways as their game against the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders was washed out due to rain. They have nine points to their name. Now they will be hoping to grab their fifth win when they take on the Emirates on Friday.

MI Emirates, on the other hand, have played five games so far. They won their first three games but lost the next two, with their recent loss coming against the Desert Vipers. On the back of fifties from Nicholas Pooran (57) and Kieron Pollard (67*), the Emirates posted 169 on the board. The bowlers failed to pick up wickets as they were unsuccessful in defending the total. They will look to get back to winning ways in their next ILT20 clash.
