The final of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2022 will see the New York Strikers lock horns against the Deccan Gladiators. The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi will host this exciting contest.
New York Strikers qualified to the final of the competition by coming out on top in the first qualifier. They faced the Morrisville Samp Army and beat them convincingly to seal a berth in the final of the competition.
Bowling first, Akeal Hosein, Ravi Rampaul, Jordan Thompson, and Wahab Riaz picked up two wickets apiece as they restricted the Samp Army to 81. They had a little scare while chasing but Muhammad Waseem remained unbeaten on 36 off just 16 balls to take his side across the line in the penultimate over. They will be looking to carry forward the winning momentum in the final.
Deccan Gladiators, meanwhile, had to take the longer route to reach the final. They beat Team Abu Dhabi in the Eliminator. They carried forward the winning momentum and beat the Morrisville Samp Army in the second qualifier to book a date with the Strikers in the final.
The Gladiators’ bowlers struggled a bit as the Samp Army finished their innings on 119/2. Chasing a mammoth total, Andre Russell (63 off 32 balls) and Nicholas Pooran (38* off 12 balls) led the charge with the bat as they chased down the total with two balls to spare. They will be eager to repeat their performance for one last time in the final on Sunday.
