Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 – Team Abu Dhabi vs Bangla Tigers - Match 24
The 24th match of the Abu Dhabi T10 2021 will be played between Team Abu Dhabi and Bangla Tigers at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Current Form Bangla Tigers:
After winning their first Super League game, Bangla Tigers have managed to lose their second game against Qalandars by a small margin. Winning the toss, they invited Qalandars to have a bat first. Bangla Tigers could not have asked for a better start as they saw the back of Tom Banton early on, who can be devastating on his day. However, they could not find a way to dismiss another in-form batter Sohail Akhtar as he smashed his way to 49 in just 28 deliveries. His 49 run partnership with Ben Dunk proved to be decisive as they finished with a fighting total of 104 for 3 in 10 overs. George Garton bowled brilliantly for his spell of 2 overs, giving away just 8 runs and picking up the prized wicket of Tom Banton.
What seemed to be a hassle free target in front of Bangla Tigers was made complicated after the early departure of both their openers Charles and Fletcher. At one point, the scoreboard flashed 49 for 3 in the 6th over. The task was only getting harder for Bangla Tigers when Tom Moores came in and played a handy knock of 39 in 21 balls to ensure they fight until the end. Qais Ahmed smashed a few balls well in the last over but with 24 needed off 6 balls, the target seemed impossible to achieve. In the end, Tigers finished with 97 on the board, losing the game by 7 runs.
Current Form Team Abu Dhabi:
Team Abu Dhabi have made a strong come back after their defeat in the first Super League game. In their recent encounter with Maratha Arabians, Team Abu Dhabi won the toss and asked Maratha Arabians to have a bat first. Muktar Ali was surprisingly promoted up the order and he struck 14 off 7 deliveries before perishing to Jamie Overton. Alishan Sharafu and Mohammad Hafeez then tried to bring things back in order with their stand of 48 runs for the 2nd wicket but it was a rather slow paced partnership that affected the overall run rate. Once the duo got out, Maratha Arabians never really got going. Shoaib Malik showed great promise to help his team get past the 100 run mark but failed to strike well in the last over. In the end, Maratha Arabians set a 98 run target for Team Abu Dhabi. Obed McCoy was the top wicket taker with 2 scalps at the cost of 20 runs.
Chasing 97, Team Abu Dhabi got off to a flying start as Chris Gayle struck form at the right time. He seemed to be terrific touch and we could see the vintage Gayle smashing bowlers to all parts of the ground. By the end of 2nd over, Team Abu Dhabi had already scored 45 runs without the loss of any wicket. Paul Stirling was dismissed in the 3rd over of the innings but it did not affect Chris Gayle one bit as he kept hitting the ball to all directions. The Universe Boss reached his fifty in just 12 deliveries. He was taking the game on and there was only little left for the Maratha Arabians to stop this carnage. In the end, Team Abu Dhabi chased the total rather easily in the 6th over itself. Chris Gayle finished with an unbeaten 84 off just 22 deliveries that included 9 monstrous hits. It was definitely an innings to remember for a long time.
