As for the match, after being invited to bat first, the Bangla Tigers lost their opener Chris Lynn in the very first over for a three-ball duck. Even Kusal Mendis walked back for a quickfire 19. David Miller and Daniel Sams also got out in quick succession to leave the Tigers reeling at 33/4 in the fourth over.

This is when the other opener Jordan Cox took control of the innings and launched a terrific counterattack to smash an unbeaten 90 off just 36 balls. He found an able ally in Dasun Shanaka, who scored an unbeaten 25 off 11 balls. The duo added an unbeaten 110 off just 38 deliveries to propel the Bangla Tigers to 143 runs in their 10 overs.

The chase was always going to be tough for the Gladiators and losing Tom-Kohler Cadmore didn’t help them either. But then skipper Nicholas Pooran thumped 41 runs off 17 balls to keep their hopes alive. Fabian Allen played a sparkling knock of 40 runs while Andre Fletcher chipped in 17 off 5.

However, Andre Russell struggled to even time the ball cost them the game in the end. The Caribbean marauder could only score 11 runs after facing 17 balls. This led to the Gladiators mustering only 123 runs in 10 overs eventually losing the game by 20 runs.
