The assessment suggests that the teams are evenly matched, but the Desert Vipers appear to have a more balanced squad. With a strong top order including Munro, Hales, and Hose, along with depth in batting provided by Hasaranga, Bas de Leede, and Rohan Mustafa, the Vipers have a well-rounded lineup. The bowling unit, featuring Amir, Hasaranga, Tymal Mills, and Pathirana, further contributes to the team’s balance. In contrast, the Gulf Giants’ bowling looks one-dimensional.
