The Bangla Tigers and Team Abu Dhabi are all set to lock horns in Match No.17 of the T10 League 2021-22 on Friday. The match will take place at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Danny Briggs picked up two wickets. In their run-chase, Abu Dhabi strained a wee bit as the game went right down to the last ball. In the end, Jamie Overton’s unbeaten five-ball 20 took them over the line. Opening batter Phillip Salt also contributed with a handy 23-ball 56.

The Tigers, led by Faf du Plessis, have now won three games in a row and moved to No.3 in the points table. In their previous match on Thursday, they defeated the Deccan Gladiators by nine wickets. After fielding first, they restricted the Gladiators to 116 for five in 10 overs.

Ben Howell was the pick of their bowlers with two wickets. Thereafter, the Tigers chased the target down in 8.1 overs with 11 balls left in their innings. Hazratullah Zazai was the star of the show as he hammered an unbeaten 26-ball 59 with the help of three fours and five sixes.
