Abu Dhabi T10 2021: Qalanders cruise to 9 wicket win over Team Abu Dhabi
The Qalandars made quick work of Team Abu Dhabi, winning by 9 wickets, in the 8th Match of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021, today, at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Qalandars *104/1 (8.2 ov)
Team Abu Dhabi 100/5 (10 ov)
Result - Qalandars won by 9 wickets.
It was a good innings for Team Abu Dhabi who were put in to bat first. Paul Stirling (29) and Joe Clarke (34) hit big totals to put them in a good looking position, despite the best efforts of Shahid Afridi (2-16).
However, what looked a reasonable score, didn't look quite as good as Tom Banton got off the mark, smashing 17 in the first over.
Naveen-ul-haq (1-19) was crucial in taking Banton's wicket, but other than that the Team Abu Dhabi bowling line-up didn't really offer any fight.
Qalandars never looked like losing this one. Despite a slow start for Sharjeel Khan (40*) and Sohail Akhtar (27*) they added totals to close out a comfortable 9 wicket win.
Qalandars - Ben Dunk (WK), Tom Banton, Sharjeel Khan, Asif Ali, Sohail Akhtar (C), Shahid Afridi, Samit Patel, Chris Jordan, Sultan Ahmed, Sohail Tanvir, Ahmad Daniyal
Team Abu Dhabi - Ben Duckett (WK), Chris Gayle, Joe Clarke, Najibullah Zadran, Luke Wright (C), Paul Stirling, Rohan Mustafa, Naveen-ul-Haq, Obed McCoy, Usman Shinwari, Jamie Overton
