Defending champions, Northern Warriors will take on Delhi Bulls in the inaugural match of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 on Friday. Warriors went on to beat Bulls in the final of the last season by 8 wickets and clinched the trophy. They are completely different compared to last year. Chris Jordan will lead the side this year and includes some of the big names with the likes of Moeen Ali, Imran Tahir, and Samit Patel.

Delhi Bulls, on the other hand, will be disappointed to lose in the finals against Northern Warriors last year. Dwayne Bravo will continue as a skipper for this year as well. The inclusion of Rilee Rossouw, Eoin Morgan, and Luke Wright will further strengthen the side. They are hopeful of going a step further in this tournament.
