Who will win ILT20 2024

The 2nd season of the UAE’s International League T20 is set to take place in January-February. The inaugural season of ILT20 in 2023 was a huge success and became one of the top T20 cricket leagues with its line-up of star players. Six franchise teams will face each other in a double round-robin format in 30 matches across 3 venues in the United Arab Emirates.

Gulf Giants are the current champions as they won the inaugural title by defeating Desert Vipers in the final match. The Giants will start their 2024 campaign against Sharjah Warriors in the 1st match of the ILT20 2024 on 19th January. The final match is scheduled to take place on 17th February at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Top Contender to win ILT20 2024

According to our analysis, we are backing MI Emirates to lift the ILT20 trophy in the 2024 edition. They finished at the 3rd spot and reached the 2nd qualifier match.

MI Emirates will be led by the experienced all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who has been associated with the franchise for a long time.

Pollard was the highest run scorer of the team in the last season with 394 runs. 4 players from the MI Emirates crossed the 300-run mark in the last season and these players are still with the squad which signifies a strong batting line-up.

In the bowling attack, Rashid Khan might be absent from few or all the matches as he is recovering from lower-back surgery. Akeal Hosein has been roped in and he will have the responsibility to fill Rashid’s shoes. The pace attack looks strong in MI with Trent Boult leading from the front. He will be supported by Fazalhaq Farooqi, Dwayne Bravo and Odean Smith. Bravo and Farooqi picked 13 and 12 wickets each, respectively in the last season while Boult took 9.
