Match 15 of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 has Bangla Tigers (BT) taking on Deccan Gladiators (DG) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
The Bangla Tigers, after a poor start to their Abu Dhabi T10 League campaign, have hit back with two wins. With a power-packed batting unit comprising Andre Fletcher and Faf du Plessis, the Tigers will be eyeing yet another win. The Deccan Gladiators, meanwhile, are arguably the strongest team on paper with the likes of Wanindu Hasaranga and Andre Russell starring for them in recent games. Although the Gladiators will head into this game as the clear favorites, they will be wary of the Tigers, who aren't pushovers by any means.

Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
A good batting track beckons at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium with the dimensions of the ground playing into the batter's hands. There is some movement available off the surface, but the ball should skid onto the bat nicely. The spinners will have to be wary of their lines and lengths, with there being little room for error. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 110 being a good total at the venue.
