The 19th match of the Abu Dhabi T10 2021 will be played between Bangla Tigers and Qalandars at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Current Form Bangla Tigers:
Bangla Tigers have won their first super league game against Pune Devils. After winning the toss, they asked Pune Devils to have a bat first. Tom Kohler-Cadmore played very well for his 48 runs while Chadwick Walton and Kennar Lewis failed terribly. Alex Davies in the middle order tried his best to infuse momentum into the innings with his knock of 41 in 21 deliveries, as a result of which Pune Devils were able to put on a decent total. In the end, they managed 115 for 3 in 20 overs. Fazal Haque of Bangla Tigers bowled a terrific spell giving away just 16 runs and picking up 1 wicket.
What seemed to be an easy chase for Bangla Tigers got complicated when they lost their in-form batsman Johnston Charles early in the innings. However, after his dismissal, Andre Fletcher and Chirag Suri did not close themselves down to the bowlers and took the counter attacking option to build a handy partnership. After another wicket fell, Tom Moores came to the crease and smashed the bowlers to all corners of the park for his knock of 38 in 12 deliveries. This knock was the major difference between a loss and a win for Bangla Tigers. In the end, they chased the total comfortably with 7 balls remaining.

There was no momentum in the innings although Shoaib Malik too tried his best with his knock 23 in 16 deliveries. In the end, Maratha Arabians could only manage an under par total of 101 for 5 in 10 overs.
