The two innings of the 8th match of the T10 League were completely different stories. While one was about sheer hitting and going bonkers after the bowlers, the other was about disciplined bowling and hitting great areas. It was the Northern Warriors who were highly oppressive in both these innings and broke many records on the way.

They registered the highest score ever in the league. Going at an inconceivable run rate of 18.3, they put up 183 runs on the board for the loss of two wickets. Nicholas Pooran registered the highest score ever in the T10 League. Ravi Bopara pulled off a great performance with the ball in hand. Furthermore, their win margin is the highest ever thus far.

The ‘Champions’ leave the fans mesmerised with some breath-taking hitting

If ever one has to think about a brutal massacre with the bat in hand, this innings would be right there at the top. Such was the impact the Northern Warriors batsmen created in this match. Lendl Simmons’ innings, i.e., 36 off 21 balls with six fours and one six looked pretty much ordinary in front of the other batsmen. Nicholas Pooran, who opened the innings with him was absolutely destructive.

He scored 77 off 25 balls. Pooran hit 10 sixes in his innings, which is another all-time highest. The openers put up 107 runs together, the highest for the opening wicket and second highest overall. Andre Russell, who came in next hardly took the foot off the pedal. He tonked the ball all over right from the word go and was unbeaten on 38 off 9 balls. Rovman Powell finished things off with 21 off 5 to help his team register this massive score.

The chase was nowhere close to the first innings. It seemed as if the Punjabi Legends were batting on a different track. There were a few soft dismissals and the batsmen hardly got going. All they managed was 84/7 in 10 overs which wasn’t even half of the first innings score. They lost the match by 99 runs – the highest margin of defeat ever till date.

Twitterati was left in a state of shock watching this innings. They absolutely couldn’t believe what was happening watching the Caribbean boys strike the ball that way. Ravi Bopara also received a part of the praise for his 4-wicket haul.
