The 17th match of the ILT20 2023 will see Sharjah Warriors (SJH) take on the Dubai Capitals (DUB) in Sharjah on Thursday, January 26. Ahead of the match, here’s everything you need to know about the SJH vs. DUB Dream11 prediction.
After a slow start to their ILT20 campaign, the Warriors come into the game on the back of two consecutive wins. The likes of Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Naveen ul Haq have been impressive in recent matches and will be keen to sustain their form.
The Dubai Capitals have a similar record to that of their opponents with two wins in five matches so far. They have relied on Rovman Powell and Joe Root to do the heavy lifting with the bat, while their bowlers have blown hot and cold.
Both teams look evenly matched on paper, making for a cracking contest in Sharjah.

Joe Denly was the star of the show in Sharjah Warriors’ win against the Giants, scoring 58 runs off 43 balls. He is an experienced campaigner who is capped at the international level. With Dawid Malan and Moeen Ali being unavailable due to national duties, Denly is expected to bat higher up the order, making him a viable selection in your SJH vs DUB Dream11 prediction team.

Akif Raja has been in decent form for the Capitals, picking up six wickets in five matches. He is averaging 20.33 with the ball and took two wickets in the reverse fixture as well. With Raja likely to play a key role in the middle overs, he can be backed in your SJH vs DUB Dream11 prediction team.

Mohammad Nabi has shown glimpses of his ability with both the bat and ball this season for the Warriors. In his previous ILT20 outing, Nabi scored 20 runs in the lower order, guiding the Warriors to a match-winning total.
