Bowling first against Team Abu Dhabi, Imtiaz Ahmed struck early on and took the prized wickets of Paul Stirling and Chris Gayle. Luke Wright tried to give wings to the inning but he too ran himself out at an important juncture. Joe Clarke in the middle overs showed some class with his 21 off 11 balls but apart from him, no other batter could spend enough time at the crease. In the end, Team Abu Dhabi made 95 runs in their 10 overs. Zahoor Khan picked up 3 wickets for Deccan Gladiators.

Qalandars once again were at the top of their game against Team Abu Dhabi and restricted them to a total of 100 for 5. Chris Gayle failed once again and could not impress the spectators with his big hitting show. Shahid Afridi was fantastic with the ball in hand and returned with the figures of 16 for 2 in his spell. The counter attacking knocks by Joe Clarke and Paul Stirling ensured that Team Abu Dhabi did not collapse after a few early wickets.
Chasing 100, Tom Banton started off very well and smashed Usman Shinwari for 18 runs in the first over itself. He was dismissed for 30 by Naveen Ul Haq. Sohail Akhtar played cautiously at the beginning but later showcased all kinds of stroke play from his book.
