Yet another day and three more exciting cricket games in the T10 League 2019. It all started with the heroics of Shane Watson in the fourth match. After the Deccan Gladiators failed to get over the line in their first game, Shane Watson ensured that he got them over the line on this occasion. In this game, the Bangla Tigers batted first. A 12-ball 26 from Rilee Rossouw and a 21-ball 37 by Colin Ingram helped the Tigers get to 108/5 in 10 overs. Migael Pretorius picked up three wickets in his two overs.
Shane Watson mustered 41 runs off 25 balls in the chase while Anton Devcich got 27 from only 11. There was a slight scare for the Gladiators towards the end. But Daniel Lawerence ensured that his team got over the line with a ball to spare with his unbeaten 8-ball 15.
Northern Warriors get bundled out for 46 runs
Karnataka Tuskers became the first team in this edition of the tournament to win a game by batting first. After they lost a couple of wickets early, Upul Tharanga and Shafiqullah Shafiq took over with their brilliant batting. While the Sri Lanka batsman scored 48 from 22 balls, the wicket-keeper added 34 runs in 21 balls. Thus, they set a target of 111 runs to the opposition. But Nathan Rimmington, Pat Brown and Ahmed Raza kept it tight and restricted the Delhi Bulls to 91/8. With 31 runs, Angelo Mathews was the top scorer in the innings.
Tom Banton put up his talent on display in the game against Northern Warriors. His unbeaten 53 from 28 balls and contributions from others helped the Qalandars get to 112/4 in 10 overs. The Warriors were expected to give a tough competition in the chase. But it turned out to be one of the most shocking performances from them. Just one batsman touched the double figures. It was Seekkuge Prasanna who got the dangerous Andre Russell out. Wickets kept tumbling one after the other and the side was ultimately bowled out for only 46 runs.
