The Gladiators are on the verge of being evicted and would require the combined effort of every member concerned if they are vying to play in the later stages of the onging tournament. Skipper Shane Watson and Anton Devich have been pretty consistent so far and would carry the onus of ensuring their side's victory over the Tuskers. The former's performance, in particular, would of topmost concern for the Gladiators.
Opener Mohammad Shahzad hasn't fired on the opportunities and would be backed to stand up on the occasion. Bowling wise, the Gladiators would bank on the trio of Migael Pretorius, Mason Crane, and Fawad Ahmed for restricting the opposition to a petty total. With Pretorius scalping three wickets in the previous outing versus Bangla Tigers, one could expect the 24-year-old to spearhead the bowling department in the much-coveted duel.

Openers Hashim Amla and Johnson Charles were in terrific form in the game against Bangla Tigers and would look to replicate a similar show in the coming duel. Upul Tharanga had performed decently in the game against Delhi Bulls and would look to get those sixes and fours. Ryan ten Doeschate and Shafiqullah Shafiq haven't had the best series with the bat so far and would be itching to get an opportunity to perform to their potential.
Sandeep Lamichhane was the top-performer for the Tuskers with figures of 2/9 in the previous outing and along with pacers Nathon Rimmongton and Shapoor Zadran would aim to get those early dismissals.

It is going to be a bright and sunny day at Abu Dhabi with the temperature gliding between 29-31 degrees Celsius. Excellent conditions for batting can be assumed with scores as high as 120 being chased without enduring much duress.
The pitch at Abu Dhabi has always been high scoring with 110 runs being the average first innings score in the T10 league matches played this season. Batters will benefit throughout the contest with little or no advantage to the pacers.
The toss winning captain should consider to bowl first at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. Five out of nine matches played at this venue have been won by the team batting second, and a similar number could be anticipated in the upcoming game as well. Moreover, taking into account the weather and pitch conditions, chasing might become comparatively easier for the batters in the latter stages of the contest.
Karnataka Tuskers rendered a sparkling exhibition in the previous duel and would look to continue with a similar momentum in the must-win game versus Deccan Gladiators. The Amla-led side possesses more lethality in their batting lineup, which could of great help while chasing total in what could be a nerve-wracking duel.
