Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 – Deccan Gladiators v Team Abu Dhabi - Match 6
The 6th match of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 will be played between Deccan Gladiators and Team Abu Dhabi at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Team Abu Dhabi finished at 5th position in the Super League of Abu Dhabi T10 2019 with 2 victories in the 6 matches played.
Team Abu Dhabi looks quite balanced with this year’s lineup. They have added Chris Gayle to the squad who is expected to entertain many with his monstrous hitting ability. Alex Hales too will play a vital role in Team Abu Dhabi’s progress in the tournament. However, it isn’t sure if he will feature in the initial matches due to his commitment to Sydney Thunder in the ongoing Big Bash League in Australia.
Luke Wright was the star for Team Abu Dhabi in the last edition with 208 runs to his name in 6 matches at an average of 52.
With the ball in hand, Usman Shinwari will spearhead the attack. He is coming fresh off great performances in the recently concluded Lanka Premier League. Apart from him, Rohan Mustafa will play a key role in middle overs with his off spin bowling along with Hayden Walsh Juinior. With the sheer talent Obed McCoy and Chris Morris possess, it is impossible to write off Team Abu Dhabi in this year’s Abu Dhabi T10.
Deccan Gladiators have lost their first game of the tournament against Pune Devils by 7 wickets. After losing the toss, they were put in to bat first. Both the attacking openers Mohammad Shahzad and Sunil Narine went for the glory shot and lost their wickets early on in the innings. They were dismissed cheaply by Nasir Hossain. The big fish Keiron Pollard was the next one to follow them into the pavilion as he was dismissed for a paltry 2 run knock. Thereafter, Cameron Delport resurrected the innings along with Prashant Gupta and managed to put on a stand of 41 runs for the 4th wicket. It was the late flourish by Azam Khan that provided a ray of hope for Gladiators to cross the 100 run mark. He scored 37 off 13 deliveries and helped Gladiators make 104 in their 10 overs.
Chasing 104, Pune Devils did not have an ideal start as they lost their opener Tom Kohler Cadmore for 12. An early dismissal could not put breaks to the momentum as Chadwick Walton and Kennar Lewis smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground. They stitched a partnership of 27 runs for the 2nd wicket. After Walton was dismissed, Kennar Lewis held one end very strong and played an unbeaten match winning knock of 57 runs in 28 deliveries that included 6 huge sixes. Due to his brave effort, Pune Devils chased the total easily with 4 balls to spare and 7 wickets in hand.
