Abu Dhabi T10 League: Bangla Tigers vs Abu Dhabi



Two matches were played in the T10 league today on 26 November.

The first match was played between Bangla Tigers and Team Abu Dhabi while the second match was played between Chennai Braves and Deccan Gladiators.

Bangla Tigers beat Team Abu Dhabi and ended their 5 match winning streak

This was the first defeat for Team Abu Dhabi in this tournament so far but they are still on the top position with 10 points in 6 matches.

Team Abu Dhabi elected to field first after winning the toss but that didn’t go well for them as they failed to chase the target of 131 runs set by the Bangla Tigers.

Bangla Tigers lost their first wicket early but Hazratullah Zazai and Will Jacks made a 63 runs partnership.

They smashed the ball all around the ground for boundaries.

Hazratullah Zazai scored 41 runs off 20 balls (3 fours and 3 sixes) and Will Jacks played a fiery knock of 43 runs off just 17 balls (3 fours and 5 sixes).

These two batters set the platform and gave the Bangla Tigers a dream start.

But after the dismissal of these two batters, wickets started to fall quickly and the run rate decreased a bit.

Bangla Tigers needed someone to finish their innings with some brilliant hard-hitting and that was done by Faf du Plessis.

The South African star, Faf du Plessis played a quick little cameo of 22 runs off just 8 balls smashing 2 sixes and a boundary to set 130 runs on the board for his side.

Team Abu Dhabi had a horrible start to their chase as they lost both of their openers back to back in the 3rd over.

Livingstone came at number 3 and he played a quick but short inning of 20 runs in just 6 balls including 3 huge sixes. 

The “Universal boss”, Chris Gayle then joined the party and he thrashed the ball to all parts of the ground.

But the wickets kept falling from the other end causing their required rate to increase so much and in the end, Team Abu Dhabi lost by 10 runs. 

Chris Gayle remained not out on 52 off just 23 balls including 5 sixes and 3 fours. 

Bangla Tigers  10 overs     130-5

W. Jacks 43 (17)      Daniyal 1-20                                                                                                                           Zazai       41 (20)      Naveen 1-24

Deccan Gladiators vs Chennai Braves

Hasaranga shines as Gladiators beat Chennai Braves in a low scoring game

Gladiators lost 5 wickets while chasing just 58 runs. If 15 wickets have fallen in a T10 match then you can understand that how good the surface was for the bowlers.

Deccan Gladiators opted to bowl first after winning the toss and it proved to be a brilliant decision as their bowlers bowled beautifully to dismiss the whole Chennai team on just 57 runs.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa was the only batter for Chennai Braves who crossed the double-figure mark as the rest of Chennai players were not able to cross even the double-figure mark.

Wanindu Hasaranga was the star with the ball as he picked up 3 wickets for just 9 runs.

He was also awarded as player of the match for his brilliant performance. Russell and Rumman Raees picked up 2 wickets each. 

Gladiators also started very badly as they lost their top 4 wickets within the first 3 overs and they were struggling at 20-4.

The 5th wicket fell on 44 runs in the 5th over. Angelo Perera and Mark Deyal picked up 2 wickets each to put the Gladiators under pressure even while chasing a very small total.

Deccan Gladiators chased down the total easily at the end and they won the match by 5 wickets with 4 overs left.

This was a very convincing victory for the Deccan Gladiators and it will boost up both their confidence and NRR.

Chennai Braves   10 overs      57 all-out

Rajapaksa  18 (10)       Hasaranga  3-9                                                                                                                          Shanaka     8 (7)           Russell        2-10

Smriti Mandhana and Ellyse Perry star in RCB women’s comeback win against UP Warriorz in WPL 2024

RCB women overcame UP Warriorz by 23 runs to clinch their third win of the season. The home side outperformed Warriorz in all the facets of the game and emerged victorious. A collective team effort, particularly with the bat, helped RCB women to beat Warriorz for the second time in the season. They now have three wins in their five matches in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy won the toss and opted to field first. Given how things have panned out in the league so far, it needed a great batting performance from RCB to challenge the chasing side. The home side did exactly that. They were full of intent which was lacking in the last few games. Right from the start, S Meghana and Smriti Mandhana smashed the bowlers.

It was the night of the RCB skipper. The Southpaw scored 80(50) in her stay. S Meghana perished after a valuable 28(21). Ellyse Perry batted well and registered her first fifty of the WPL 2024. She was aided well towards the end by Richa Ghosh whose 21(10) propelled RCB to a score of 198 on the board. It was the highest team total in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy’s efforts go in vain

Chasing the daunting total, UP Warriorz were off to a flier. The opening duo of Healy and Kiran Navgire gave a fiery start to the visiting side. When the two were batting in the PP overs, it seemed like the Warriorz could pull off an insane chase. However, Sophie Devine brought RCB back into the game with crucial wickets. At Bengaluru, the home crowd was literally behind the RCB women.

It helped the home side to stay calm and do their job with ease. Sophie Molineux and Asha Sobhana were the pick of the bowlers, who claimed 2/29 each in their spell of four overs. While Healy scored a fifty and Deepti tried her best in the death overs, ten daunting targets could not be chased down. Despite the early hiccups, RCB managed to restrict UP Warriorz to a score of 175 and won by 23 runs.

One of those travelled towards the mid-wicket region where the car was stationed. The video of her shot has gone viral on X.

RCB teammates laugh, Ellyse Perry in disbelief

As the ball fell on the car and damaged the window, the fans erupted. There was no end to the joy of the fans who started chanting “Perry.. Perry..” and lit the atmosphere of the stadium.

Praveen Kumar addresses Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer’s negligence of taking part in Ranji Trophy




Praveen Kumar

Praveen Kumar has given his opinion on the preferences of Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer in recent times. The duo did not take part in the Ranji Trophy matches for their respective teams despite being fit. It did not go well with the Indian Cricket Board which landed the duo without a ventral contract which was announced a few days back.

Praveen Kumar has reacted to the issue recently. The former India pacer claimed that he has been of an opinion on the issue for a long time. Praveen felt that one should definitely earn money but not at the cost of neglecting to play for domestic and national teams. The right-arm pacer felt that players today are having a certain mentality which is not good.

The former pacer claimed that the players have a mindset that they can rest for a month before taking part in the IPL, thereby bypassing playing for their national team or the domestic teams. Praveen felt that the players could not resist letting go of money which they could earn by taking part in the IPL and other T20 leagues (For foreign players).

‘Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun’ – Praveen Kumar

“This thing is now firmly in the mind of players. Mai ek mahine pehle rest kar lunga, fir IPL khel lunga. Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun,” said Praveen in the interview. He claimed that youngsters these days are spoilt and are behind money. The former RCB pacer felt that it is not fair on the part of the young players to neglect the country over the IPL.

Kumar felt that a player needs to maintain a balance between playing for the IPL team and for the country. He felt that money is an important factor, but not at the cost of playing for the national team. “But this is not fair at all. A player needs to balance things. Money is important, but this (giving franchise cricket the priority) is wrong,” said the former Indian bowler in the interview.
