The co-owners of Delhi Capitals in the IPL are also the owner of the Dubai Capitals, the team that represents the city of Dubai. Led by Rovman Powell, DC has a strong core comprising the likes of Robin Uthappa, Yusuf Pathan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sikandar Raza. The team does have a few issues, especially in the bowling department. However, it is only after the tournament starts that the teams would get to know about their best combination, especially in the first edition of the competition. It will be interesting to see how this team performs in ILT20 2023.

Especially after COVID, Dubai became a hotspot for major cricket tournaments. While IPL was held twice in the UAE, the 2021 T20 World Cup was later held in the nation. Majorly benefiting the spinners, the dimensions also play a crucial role at this venue.
Although only 45 of the 80-odd T20Is have won by the chasing side, this record has been more prevalent in recent years. Hence, with the average score batting first just 146, captains could choose to field first after winning the toss.

Compared to the other months, January will obviously be a bit colder in Dubai. We could expect temperatures to range between 23 and 14 degrees Celsius during this time.
Rainfall is rare in the UAE but that said, as per the predictions, around 6 days of rainfall are expected during January. However, that is unlikely to have an impact on the games,
