A couple of one-sided matches were on display on Day 5 of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021-22. While Northern Warriors suffered a six-wicket defeat against Deccan Gladiators, Bangla Tigers thrashed The Chennai Braves by nine wickets in the other clash. Notably, Warriors and Braves are yet to register a win after playing four games. Hence, time is running out for them.
At the same time, the Gladiators hold the second spot with three victories in four outings. This win was indeed crucial for the Tigers as they consolidate the fourth spot with two wins and as many losses. With the tournament set to enter its latter stage, stakes in the upcoming games would be incredibly high. Hence, all six teams must gear up to make a mark.
Coming to the proceedings of the first game on Day 5, Deccan Gladiators registered their third win in the Abu Dhabi T10 after defeating Northern Warriors by 6 wickets. David Wiese shone with the bat, taking his team home after coming in to bat when the Gladiators had lost four wickets in the first four overs of the chase.
Deccan Gladiators rise to the second position
With his team struggling at 31/4, Wiese joined hands with the left-handed Tom Moores and stitched an unbeaten 45-run-partnership to ensure his team rose to the second spot in the points table. If this is termed as a one-sided encounter, the following contest should be called madness over the 22 yards.
Bangla Tigers cruised to an easy nine-wicket win over The Chennai Braves in Tuesday’s second fixture of the evening in the Abu Dhabi T10. Openers Johnson Charles and Hazratullah Zazai gave the team a blistering start, making the chase a walk in the park for Faf Du Plessis’ men. In the end, Zazai’s third six of the evening, which was his team’s ninth, helped Bangla Tigers chase down the target of 90 in just 4.2 overs.
