A total of 29 games will be played over a duration of ten days, with the final scheduled to be played on 6th February. Eight teams will be battling it out in the fourth edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 League to take home the prestigious title.
Delhi Bulls had a dismal tournament run in the last edition as they were able to register just a single win in six games. They thereby ended at the penultimate position in both Group A and the Super League of the Abu Dhabi T10 League. However, having secured the services of last edition’s title-winning captain Dwayne Bravo, they will hope for better results this time around.
Bangla Tigers, on the other hand, ended in the 3rd position in the last edition by winning three of their six games. They boast of a batting lineup full of explosive batsmen such as Johnson Charles, David Wiese and Andre Fletcher. The spin duo of Qais Ahmad and Mujeeb Ur Rahman will lead the bowling attack.
With both teams hoping to kick off their campaign on a high note, the fans will be in for some fast-paced cricketing action.

Match: Delhi Bulls vs Bangla Tigers, Match 3
Date: January 28, 2021, 10:00 PM IST
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
The track at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a decent one to bat on with an average 1st innings score of 112. The bowlers will have to be cautious about their line and length as the batsmen will look to play every delivery for the maximums.
However, the spinners are expected to get assistance from the track and scalp some early wickets. The team winning the toss will like to bat first and post healthy totals on the board.
