Northern Warriors looked like winning this one from the beginning, Lendl Simmons (41) kicking things off before Nicholas Pooran entered the fray. Pooran went on to score an unbeaten 89, smashing an unbelievable 12 sixes, and putting things well out of reach for Bangla Tigers.
Things went from bad to worse for the Bangla Tigers as Johnson Charles was dismissed on the third ball of their innings by Wahab Riaz (1-9).
Andre Fletcher (53) stood tall though, and crafted a well taken half century. Chirag Suri chipped in with 42* towards the end but they fell short by 30 runs.
