Moeen Ali scored the highest score of this season’s League as the Northern Warriors inflicted ANOTHER loss on Abu Dhabi. Moeen got a 23 ball 77 to see the Warriors chase down the largest total of the competition so far for the loss of no wickets to see Abu Dhabi’s form slump even lower.
It was an all-English affair as Banton was the top scorer for Deccan as they beat Delhi with ease. After getting them out for 94, Banton et al got the total in just 6 overs.

Chennai got smashed in again.

Oshane Thomas got another threefer today to continue the West Indians decent competition. He helped limit Deccan to 134, but his resurgent Northern Warriors couldn’t deliver with the bat and ended up running out losers. The win sees Deccan overtake Abu Dhabi at the top of the table.

It was clearly a good day to be a West Indian bowler as Dominic Drakes. He helped sink a stuttering Bangla team who only got to 88 in pursuit of just 100.

Chennai got beaten again.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is having a fine second half to this competition for Delhi. He scored 69 today to mark his 3rd score of 50+ in his last 5 innings. This sees him overtake Rovman Powell as the highest runscorer in the competition. Hasaranga continues to dominate with the ball with 18 wickets from his 10 games.

Gurbaz's dominance today came against Abu Dhabi whose form in the second hald of the competition has been abysmal. They have now dropped to second with Deccan taking the lwad on the points table.

Was the knockout round of the competition today.

Deccan beat Delhi to progress straight to the final. It was hard luck for Dominic Drakes who got three wickets, taking his total to 16...however his Delhi side were out gunned with the bat which meant that Deccan progressed straight to the final.

In the eliminator Bangla were the unlucky lovers as Abu Dhabi progressed to the second Qualifier against Delhi. This was despite Hazratullah Zazai scoring the 6th highest score of the tournament so far - 66 off 23.


In the evening game things got worse for Abu Dhabi but much better for Drakes as he got figures of 4-13 to skittle TAD out for just 60 In a chase of 109. It really has been a mighty downfall for Abu Dhabi who looked unbeatable in the first half of the tournament.

Drakes' 7 wickets in a day sees him top the wicket taking tally whilst Gurbaz remains the highest run scorer....and is likely to remain thusntldepsite scoring just 19 across his two games.

There was a third place play off in this competition....because of course there was. Disappointingly it finished tied and suprisingly there was no Super Over. Abu Dhabi ended up Victor's as they were higher placed on the original points table. Colin Ingram (who I haven't thought of since about 2018) top scored with 41 for Abu Dhabi.

Deccan convincingly outclassed Delhi in the final. They put on a tournament high 159 for no loss with Andre Russell getting 90 off 32 balls. Delhi never looked like being able to beat that and were sunk for 103.

Deccan's Wanindu Hasaranga got another 2 wickets in the final to finish the tournament with 21 - the highest in the competition.

Hazratullah Zazai faded away a bit towards the end of the tournament but his 353 runs from 12 matches sees him as the highest run scorer.

Good clean (hopefully) fun

The sixth season of the Abu Dhabi T10 begins on Wednesday at the Zayed Cricket Stadium kicked off with Bangla beating new team New York courtesy of 58 from 22 from competition veteran Evin Lewis. Bangla got to 131 and New York could only manage 112 in response.

In the second game, Deccan had the beating of Abu Dhabi who fell to a 35 run defeat in their season opener. The Abu Dhabi franchise’s batting looked in stark contrast to Deccan whose captain, Nicholas Pooran, led from the front with a 33 ball 77 to take their total to 134. Abu Dhabi started well but lost too many wickets to prove effective.

With the addition of New York and Morrisville, the number of teams has increased to eight for this year's event.

There will be 33 games scheduled in Abu Dhabi over the next 12 days, with each side playing the other once. The top two teams will compete in a qualifier, and the victor will advance to the final on December 4 on Sunday. In a virtual semifinal, the winner of the game between the teams in third and fourth position and the loser of the Qualifier will choose who advances to the final.

Insanely we are 11 games into this tournament.

Results and team performances hardly matter but feel it is my duty to inform you that Samp Army are 2 for 2 whilst the Northern Warriors are winless.
Today saw one of the more thrilling games as New York got their second win of the season in a final ball thriller over Deccan. New York needed 6 runs off the final over but made a bit of a meal of it and ended up level on scores with a final ball remaining. They eventually pipped over the line with 8 wickets to spare.

Nicholas Pooran couldn’t buy a run in the T20 World Cup but is well in the runs here for Deccan. He has the two highest scores in the tournament and is 71 runs clear of anyone else.

Chennai’s Carlos Brathwaite is doing his best to keep bowlers in the headlines. His outstanding figures of 4-3 are quite obviously the best of the tournament and rather put the lead wicket taker, New York and Yorkshire’s Jordan Thompson’s 5 from 3 games with a BBI of 2-11 rather in the shade.

5 games have been played over the last 2 days with 4 different victors. The team to have prevailed twice over that time was Northern Warriors who had lost their first three games on the bounce. The scale of their turnaround is underlined by a huge victory today against Chennai. After setting 141, they limited Chennai to 107 and won by 34 runs – a huge gulf by T10 standards.
The Deccan Gladiators are our new leaders with 3 wins from four and can thank the form of Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Nicholas Pooran for that. Pooran’s run scoring has slowed but has still got 41 runs over the last two games. As Pooran waned, TKC has waxed and stolen his team mates highest score when he bagged 82* off Delhi yesterday.

Karim Janat is another player who has had a good few days as he has excelled with both bat and ball. His stand out performance came today with the ball as he got figures of 3-9 for Samp Army against New York. The new overall highest bowler is his team mate, Dwaine Pretorius.

In a tournament where it doesn’t really matter who wins, Deccan Gladiators beat New York Strikers in today’s final.
Eoin Morgan ended with the highest individual score for finalists New York. He bagged 87* off 35 balls against the Northern Warriors in their final group game. The final group game for Delhi Bulls also saw Mohammad Taimur get the tournament’s second four-fer against Chennai Braves.

Overall it was Nicholas Pooran who finished as the highest run scorer – as he has been throughout the tournament. He scored 345 across 10 games with a high score of 80. Dwaine Pretorious and Jordan Thompson both ended with 12 wickets but the Saffer had the better average at 13.08.
