Qalandars and Team Abu Dhabi will lock horns with each other in the 3rd Place Play-off of the Abu Dhabi T10 League, 2021. Qalandars will be very disappointed with themself. They played brilliantly in the league stage, having won 5 out of 6 matches they played they finish at the 3rd spot on the points table. However, a defeat against the Team Abu Dhabi in the Eliminator 1 has curbed their hopes of getting their hands on the trophy.
On the other hand, Team Abu Dhabi lost their Eliminator 2 tuie against Northern Warriors by 7 wickets. Before this game, they had won three consecutive matches. However, things didn’t go their way against the Warriors. Both teams will be up against each other to fight for 3rd place in the penultimate match of what has been an enthralling Abu Dhabi T10 League season.
