Batting first, Northern Warriors smashed a huge 143/4 from their 10 overs with Nicholas Pooran  29 and Rovman Powell 51* doing the most damage with the willow, along with Waseem Muhammad 26 and Fabian Allen 22. In a high scoring innings, Zahoor Khan’s 1-13, off his 2 overs, was outstanding for the Gladiators.
