The 7th match of the Abu Dhabi T10 2021 will be played between Maratha Arabians and Bangla Tigers at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Bangla Tigers have lost the first game of the season against Delhi Bulls by 7 wickets.
Batting first in the match, openers Johnston Charles and Andre Fletcher took Delhi Bulls bowlers to the cleaners. They were scoring at such a rapid pace that at point, Bangla Tigers were threatening to reach the 150+ mark in 10 overs. Johnston Charles made wonderful 73 runs off just 35 deliveries while his partner Andre Fletcher scored 32 off 16 balls. Once Fletcher was dismissed, the scoring rate dipped and Tigers could only add 27 runs in the next 17 balls to finish their innings with a total of 128 for 2.
Delhi Bulls expected their key players including Rahmanullah Gurbaz to fire and take them home in a high scoring match. Gurbaz showed positive intent early on as he smashed the first ball he faced for a magnificent six. He played a blinder and took the game away from Bangla Tigers in the first 4 overs. His well made 41 off 15 balls was not just slogging but it was filled with beautifully timed strokes. After he was dismissed, Ravi Bopara took over the attacking role and smashed his way to 38 off just 16 deliveries. Evin Lewis on the other hand played cautiously early on but unleashed his beast mode when the team needed the most in the death overs. As a result, Delhi Bulls won the match without any hassles by 7 wickets. For Bangla Tigers, Karim Janat was the pick of the bowlers as he struck twice in the match.
Maratha Arabians have been disappointing in their second game of the tournament and have lost it against Delhi Bulls. Losing the toss, Maratha Arabians were asked to have a bat first. Abdul Shakoor could not repeat his heroics from the last game and perished early on in the innings. Amad Butt bowled beautiful lines and did not provide enough room to the batsmen for a real fire power. Laurie Ewans also lost his wicket cheaply and it was followed by a dismal outing for Mohammad Hafeez. The captain Mosaddek Hossain played a fine innings to ensure Maratha Arabians reach a decent score of 87 in 10 overs.
