The Super League of the T10 League at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi got off to an exciting start. Northern Warriors stayed alive, defeating Delhi Bulls. Darren Sammy’s men will be against the Bangla Tigers, who are unbeaten from the last three game. It will be the second of Wednesday’s triple-header. Karnataka Tuskers and Maratha Arabians will face off in the day’s first encounter.

The Arabians decimated Team Abu Dhabi and having won their last two matches comprehensively. The Tuskers made a winning start against the Bulls, but have slumped to defeats versus the Tigers and Deccan Gladiators. The third game will be played between Abu Dhabi and the Gladiators, who are on a three-match winning streak. Abu Dhabi, on the other hand, have found it a tad difficult.

Pitch Report

The pitch has gotten better with the progression of the event. Scores in excess of 110 have been made more often. Batting second is no more an automatic choice as scores above 120 have turned out to be tough to chase. So, the skippers should asses their team combination before taking a call.

Weather Report

Rain hasn’t made its presence felt thus far with minimum chances of rain. Wednesday is a tad different though. The conditions will be cloudy throughout with heavy chances of rain throughout the day, especially between 7 and 8 PM. The temperature will be around the 24 degrees Celsius.

Karnataka Tuskers vs Maratha Arabians, Match 16

Karnataka Tuskers

The Tuskers have had batting as their stronger point. Johnson Charles and Hashim Amla with 105 and 85 runs have been their standout batters. Evin Lewis’ inclusion has bolstered their batting. In Shafiqullah, Tharanga and Whiteley, the Tuskers have a power-packed batting. Their bowlers have mostly given away runs at over 10 an over. Ahmed Raza is their top wicket-taker with four scalps.

Probable XI

Johnson Charles, Evin Lewis, Hashim Amla (C), Ross Whiteley, Upul Tharanga, Shafiqullah Shafaq, Ahmed Raza, Malinda Pushpakumara, Sandeep Lamichhane, Patrick Brown, Shapoor Zadran

Maratha Arabians

The Arabians batting has mostly been about Chris Lyn, who got a 30-ball 91 in the previous game. Adam Lyth has threatened, but is yet to get a substantial score. Dasun Shanaka is also a powerful striker of the leather. Hazratullah and Najibullah have strengthened their batting further. In bowling, McClenaghan, Malinga and Bravo have economy under 10 and that has helped the Arabians a lot.

Probable XI

Hazratullah Zazai, Chris Lynn (C), Adam Lyth, Najibullah Zadran, Chadwick Walton, Dasun Shanaka, Dwayne Bravo, Wanindu Hasaranga, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Shiraz Ahmed

Bangla Tigers vs Northern Warriors, Match 17

Bangla Tigers

The Tigers have seemingly been the most in-form batting unit. Rilee Russouw, David Wiese and Andre Fletcher has strike-rates over 200. Russouw is also their leading run-scorer with 119 runs. The likes of Colin Ingram, Tom Moores and Thisara Perera need to up their game a wee bit. Their bowling can be vulnerable at times, but Qais Ahmed and others are slowly, but surely, finding their touch.

Probable XI

Andre Fletcher, Rilee Russouw, Colin Ingram, Tom Moores (wk), Robbie Frylinck, Thisara Perera, David Wiese, Chirag Suri, Liam Plunkett, Qais Ahmed, Kevin Koththigoda

Northern Warriors

Lendl Simmons and Nicholas Pooran have added firepower to the Warriors’ batting unit. Andre Russell is their top run-scorer with 118 runs at a strike-rate of 193.44. It won’t be wrong in saying that Sam Billings have found it tough to get the boundaries. With the ball, Chris Green and Rayad Emrit are in good enough form. Pradeep and Russell haven’t flattered to deceive by any means.

Probable XI

Lendl Simmons, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Sam Billings, Darren Sammy (C), Asela Gunaratna, Mark Deyal, Chris Green, Rayad Emrit, Junaid Siddique, Chris Wood

Probable Top Performers

Rilee Russouw – Bangla Tigers |  Lendl Simmons – Northern Warriors

Deccan Gladiators vs Team Abu Dhabi, Match 18

Deccan Gladiators

The Gladiators’ batting has been pretty much up to the mark. Shane Watson is their top run-scorer with 128 runs at 177.77. Mohammad Shahzad got his form back with a blistering knock of 57. Kieron Pollard would want to make amends after his odd failure. Bhanuka Rajapaksha and Anton Devcich have been reasonable. In bowling, a lot will depend on the trio of Pretorius, Zahir and Zahoor Khan.

Probable XI

Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Shane Watson (C), Kieron Pollard, Daniel Lawrence, Bhanuka Rajapaksha, Ben Cutting, Anton Devcich, Fawad Ahmed, Sheldon Cottrell, Zahir Khan, Zahoor Khan

Team Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi’s batting has fallen apart a bit after the shoulder injury of Corey Anderson. Luke Wright was turning out to be their lone warrior with the bat in hand. But Avishka Fernando’s inclusion have done good to their batting, though it couldn’t them over the line last time around. In bowling, Rohan Mustafa and Laughlin need to maintain their consistency along with the likes of Gurney and Walsh.

Probable XI

Avishka Fernando, Luke Wright, Moeen Ali (C), Wayne Madsen, Lewis Gregory, Alex Davies (wk), Marchant de Lange, Hayden Walsh, Rohan Mustafa, Harry Gurney, Ben Laughlin

Probable Top Performers

Bhanuka Rajapaksha – Deccan Gladiators |  Luke Wright – Team Abu Dhabi
