In a thrilling encounter at the cricket pitch last night, the Dubai Capitals faced a setback against a formidable opponent led by the explosive Johnson Charles.

The Sri Lankan speedster Dushmantha Chameera, who exhibited exceptional bowling prowess, shared his insights on the match, acknowledging the mistakes made by the Capitals.


Charles, known for his aggressive batting style, was the game-changer, amassing an impressive 93 off 51 balls. Chameera lamented the error in strategy, admitting, “Johnson Charles is an attacking player. We made the mistake of bowling length balls, which he put away to the boundary.”

The bowler highlighted the impact of dew on the pitch after the 10th over, acknowledging that it posed a significant challenge for the team.

Despite the setback, Chameera showcased his skill by claiming Charles’s crucial wicket. The Dubai Capitals’ bowler remained optimistic about his team’s overall performance, stating, “This is a disappointing result considering that we did well with the bat and on the field. We could’ve defended 170 runs.”

The right-armer’s confidence in the team’s capabilities shines through, emphasizing the positives despite the loss.

Chameera also took a moment to reflect on the enlightening experience of sharing the dressing room with the seasoned campaigner David Warner. “It is an excellent experience sharing the dressing room with players like David Warner.

He has played in all the major leagues worldwide, so it’s a good experience for me,” said Chameera. The speedster appreciates the wealth of experience within the team, acknowledging the contribution of senior players to his growth and development.


The Dubai Capitals, despite the defeat, remain focused on the upcoming challenges. Chameera’s positive outlook reflects the team’s determination to learn from their mistakes and bounce back more robustly in the next fixture.

The Capitals are set to host the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders in their next clash on Thursday, Jan. 25, promising another exciting showdown on the cricket field.

As the cricketing fraternity eagerly anticipates the upcoming clash, fans will be keen to see how the Dubai Capitals regroup and strategize under the leadership of David Warner.

The seasoned campaigner’s influence on the team, combined with the resilience shown by players like Chameera, sets the stage for a compelling journey in the ongoing cricketing extravaganza.

In the dynamic world of T20 cricket, where fortunes can change swiftly, the Dubai Capitals are gearing up for redemption, seeking to turn the tables in their favour in the upcoming encounter.

As the cricketing drama unfolds, fans can expect a riveting contest that goes beyond the boundaries and sixes, showcasing the spirit of competition and the resilience of these modern-day gladiators on the cricket field.
