MAL vs QAT Dream11 : With the tournament over for Malaysia and Qatar, both side’s look to end the marquee tournament with one final win
With both of today’s sides suffering defeats in their respective encounters on Friday, one thing which has been ascertained from the ICC T20 World Cup Asia Regional Final is that both of Malaysia and Qatar have been bundled out of the tournament. With the sides on only one point each, even a win today won’t be enough to suffice for them, rendering their efforts futile for ending the tournament in top spot.
Malaysia were trounced by Singapore who minced them apart for a paltry score as they went onto be handed a massive 8 wicket defeat yesterday. Elsewhere for Qatar, the 198 run target set by Kuwait was too hefty a score to peel off with the side going down by 10 runs in the end despite a 59 run stand in the end which took them to 187.
However, despite their chances of qualifying for the ICC 2020 T20 World Cup having been culminated, don’t expect the nature of this encounter to diminish. For either side, this match is yet another chance to showcase their ever rising cricketing abilities on the big stage and show why they can emerge as the next colossal team from the Asian region.
Malaysia might have massively disappointed against Singapore and Nepal but their decimation of Kuwait was a massive one. It was an encounter they went onto win by a strong 40 run margin run the side will be looking to emulate that same showing when take on Qatar today.
And with Qatar’s bowling unit making for sordid viewing apart from that one performance against Nepal, expect Malaysia to pile on a strong score in this one. Malaysia should cruise to a win today and wrap up what has otherwise been a torrid time for them with a win.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The last time we had two consecutive days of cricket on this surface, the wicket had massively slowed up, making strokeplay an arduous task with the ball refusing to come onto the bat. Expect much of the same today with this being the second encounter of the day and fourth in 2 days.
Strokeplay will make for a difficult proposition and we expect the side winning the toss looking to bat here first and try to make whatever of the batting friendly conditions there are at play. Runs on the scoreboard will count massively in this encounter.
Probable Playing 11
With both the sides revealing their teams ensuing the toss, our final team combination and player changes might see some changes be incurred then. Please visit for latest development proceeding the revelation of the playing 11s. Expect both the side to dole out the same playing 11s as their previous outings in the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for MAL vs QAT Dream11
Shafiq Sharif comes in from Malaysia given the likelihood of wickets tumbling at will in this encounter. Opting for him allows us the chance to indulge in catch and stumping points, one which could propel our side towards a big score today and he’s more than a stable bat as well when he settles into his groove.
Batsmen for MAL vs QAT Dream11
Don’t expect too many runs to be peeled off in this particular encounter with Malaysia folding out for under 100 when they had stepped into the fray in the afternoon encounter for yesterday. This sees us go in with just the bare minimum of three bats with the two from Malaysia being Aminuddin Ramly and their top scorer, Muhammad Syahadat.
The one pick from Qatar is of Faisal Javid Khan.
All-Rounders for MAL vs QAT Dream11
We have picked out three picks from Qatar over here with Inam Ul Haq, Nouman Sarwar and Tamoor Sajjad all being picked up by us. The three get a good amount of overs and given the paper thin nature of Qatar’s batting unit, will get more than adequate overs to come out and bat in as well.
Just the sole selection of Syed Aziz from Malaysia for us but a player who has over the course of the last year been one of the most consistent performers for his.
Bowling Order for MAL vs QAT Dream11
The two man partnership of Muhamad Anwar and Pavandeep Singh makes an entry into our side, offering us at our disposal a pace and spin combination from the side. Expect Anwar to make some vital early inroads as well as pick up wickets in the death overs while Singh’s restrictive line and length will make it extremely tough for batters to get under his deliveries.
From Qatar, Iqbal Hussain complete our side for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain for MAL vs QAT Dream11
We are going to opt for Syahadat as our captain for today while Singh has been selected as our vice-captain.
Dream 11 Advice
With teams partaking in the tournament in a hectic and congested schedule, one which sees several countries play on consecutive days, there is a likelihood of sides changing their playing 11’s for every match. Our side is picked based on the best performers for each side with us picking up players based on their pivotal role and importance to the team paired with their recent performances, pitch conditions and roles in the side paired with the toss and pitch and playing conditions.
Factors Considered While Crafting The Dream 11 Team
When we set out to make our Dream 11 side for this particular fixture, there were a slew of factors which were incorporated while selecting our players. While the condition of the pitch played a pertinent role in deciding to go ahead with a batting or bowling heavy playing 11, the toss played an equally vital role.
Apart from that the overall stature of the two teams partaking in the contest today, importance of the player to the side and the likelihood to score big or get a rich bagful of wickets were all encapsulated while taking into consideration the captain and vice-captaincy picks and overall composition of the side.
