Qalandars stay unbeaten in Abu Dhabi T10 League

The mighty Qalandars extend their winning run by scuttling Bangla Tigers' spirited show in the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament at the Abu Dhabi Zayed Cricket Stadium.

Chasing down a 98-run target, Team Abu Dhabi got home off just 5.3 overs as the explosive Jamaican and West Indies opener raced to 50 in just 12 balls - a feat he had previously achieved in 2016 while playing for Melbourne Renegades against Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League. He reached his half century in 12 balls and equalled the fastest half century in T10 history held by Mohammad Shahzad for Rajputs in the 2018 edition.

Delhi Bulls with four wins from four matches are at the third spot while Team Abu Dhabi complete the top-four. The match got off to a sensational start when Wahab Riaz clean bowled Paul Stirling with the first ball of the match through a swinging yorker.

Coming in to bat at No. 3 in the second over, Pooran only played three deliveries before hitting his first six off Tigers pacer George Garton. Ali was the first wicket to fall following which Sharafu joined forces with the veteran Mohammad Hafeez to take the innings forward. In the fifth over, Sharafu flicked Jamie Overton's first delivery of the fifth over to the boundary and hit the next for a six over backward square leg.

Rayad Emrit ended Wright's quick knock by forcing him to hit straight to Fabian Allen at mid-wicket for 33.

At the halfway mark, Arabians were 52 for 1.

Senior Pakistan batsman Mohammad Hafeez too followed, caught and bowled by Naveed Ul Haq, for 20 in the eighth over.

UAE skipper Ahmed Raza was introduced into the attack in the fifth over and his teammate and vice-captain Suri hit him for two consecutive boundaries and a six over long on.

Gayle started the chase with three fours and a six off consecutive balls in Yamin Ahmadzai's opening over of the innings, before smashing three successive sixes off a Sompal Kami's over, which yielded 27 runs. Joe Clarke began by hitting Siddique for two consecutive boundaries.

The 41-year-old Jamaican belted six fours and nine sixes during his unreal assault with all six bowlers used by Arabians taking a beating. Abu Dhabi bowled tightly challenging Warriors to score 31 runs off the last two overs and 15 off the final over.
