Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 – Qalandars vs Team Abu Dhabi - Match 26
The 26th match of the Abu Dhabi T10 2021 will be played between Qalandars and Team Abu Dhabi at the Sheikh Spayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
This is an eliminator and the loser from the match will not be able to progress further into the tournament.
Current Form Qalandars:
Qalandars have performed very well in the tournament up until their last game against Delhi Bulls. Batting first after losing the toss, Qalandars did not have a great start as they lost Sharjeel Khan early on in the innings. Tom Banton too could not impress much as he ran himself out after scoring a mediocre 26 off 20 balls. Sohail Akhtar showed glimpses of what he has done earlier for the team to rescue them from a tough situation but this time he failed. He perished to Dwayne Bravo after scoring an 8 ball 14. The middle order could not fire and if it was not for the death over cameo by Samit Patel, Qalandars would not have reached 107. In the end, they managed 107 on the board in 10 overs.
Chasing 107, Delhi Bulls seemed to be in a hurry. Rahmanullah Gurbaz as usual smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground for his knock of 17 before getting out to Ahmad Daniyal. His wicket did not affect the scoring rate as Evin Lewis carried on his form and hit some eye soothing shots during his innings of 48 in just 18 balls. Ravi Bopara at number also contributed very well to the chase and made 37 off 15 balls. On the back of these controlled and phenomenal knocks, Delhi Bulls chased the total in the 8th over itself with 9 wickets in hand.
Current Form Team Abu Dhabi
Team Abu Dhabi have won their last fixture against Bangla Tigers by 21 runs. Batting first, Team Abu Dhabi lost the big man Chris Gayle in the first over itself to George Garton. Post that, Paul Stirling and Luke Wright batted out of their skin and collected 88 runs for the 2nd wicket. Paul Stirling made 64 off 32 deliveries while Luke Wright played well for his 27 off 18 balls. In the end, Team Abu Dhabi managed to put on 116 runs for 3 wickets in 10 overs.
Chasing 116, Johnston Charles provided a good start to Bangla Tigers but he could not get enough support from the other end. Wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals and each time Charles tried to resurrect the innings, another wicket fell. Andre Fletcher and Chirag Suri failed terribly in the match and scored 3 and 2 runs respectively. The only partnership that lasted a while was between Charles and Tom Moores as they stitched 35 runs for the 3rd wicket. However, once Moores fell, there was no real effort from the lower middle order. Charles scored 59 off 23 deliveries but failed to get his team over the line as they finished with 95 for 9 in 10 overs, losing the game by 21 runs.
