Team Abu Dhabi beat Pune Devils in a high scoring thriller yesterday. After winning the toss, they decided to bowl first against the Devils. Obed McCoy bowled beautifully and picked up the first wicket in the form of Kennar Lewis to place Devils under pressure. Post that, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Chadwick Walton resurrected the innings and put on a stand of 46 runs for the 2nd wicket. Cadmore made an important contribution of 61 runs while Walton managed 23 off 14 balls. Devon Thomas also played a nice cameo of 21 in the death overs to take the team total to 129 in 10 overs.
Team Abu Dhabi lost their key batter Chris Gayle early on and found themselves in the firing line. However, Paul Stirling kept his cool and batted out of his skin to make 23 off just 9 deliveries. Joe Clarke also played a phenomenal knock of 29 off just 9 balls to keep the required run rate in check. The game was set up for Team Abu Dhabi and Jamie Overton provided the last blow with his 38 run knock at a strike rate of 348 to win the game for his team by 5 wickets and 9 balls to spare.
Northern Warriors on the other hand stand at the top position on Group A’s points table with 2 wins to their basket in 3 matches played.
In their last encounter against Bangla Tigers, it was purely a Nicolas Pooran show. After deciding to bat first, Northern Warriors lost their opener Waseem Muhammad early on in the innings. The matters only became worse for Bangla Tigers as the opposition captain Nicolas Pooran walked out to bat. He did not take long to set his eyes on the pitch and smashed almost every delivery thrown at him. Pooran played one of the finest knocks of the year and scored 89 runs off just 26 balls hitting 12 monstrous sixes. As a result of this magnificent knock, Northern Warriors reached 162 for 4 in 10 overs, the highest total in the tournament so far.
Bangla Tigers looked dejected in their body language after witnessing the assault by Pooran in the first innings. They would have to bat out of their skin to win the game. The start was poor as Tigers lost Johnston Charles for a duck. Andre Fletcher played a fine knock of 53 in 28 deliveries but it was not enough as the required rate kept mounting up to an impossible ask. Chirag Suri made 42 off 16 balls towards the death overs to reduce the margin of defeat as Bangla Tigers finished with 132 for 3 in 10 overs, losing the match by 30 runs.
