That's it for the coverage of the T10 League everyone!! We hope that you enjoyed this live coverage of the finals between Delhi Bulls and Northern Warriors. Stay tuned on Sportskeeda for all the live cricketing updates from around the world. This is Abhinav Kumar and alongside me, Maanas Upadhyay signing off, till then take care and stay safe!!
Nicholas Pooran, Winning Skipper of Northern Warriors: - First of all I want to give thanks to the Abu Dhabi board for getting this to happen. There were a lot of West Indians and this was a good platform to showcase their talent. Runs on the board is pressure in a final, but our strength is batting and we decided that we'd chase down whatever they make. Well bowled to Fidel today, he had the last laugh, but we won and we had a laugh as well.
The Best UAE Player of the Tournament Award has been given to Waseem Muhammad of the Northern Warriors, while England pacer Chris Jordan wins the Best Bowler of the Tournament, while turning out for the Qalandars, with Qalandars' skipper Sohail Akhtar winning the Best Batsman of the Tournament AwardNicholas Pooran is awarded the Player of the Tournament trophy.
The presentation ceremony is taking quite an do hang on here...
Maheesh Theekshana has been awarded the man of the match.

Maheesh Theekshana:
Bravo's wicket was my favourite. I backed myself and that was the only thing. Pooran was a very good captain and he gave every bowler the freedom. This win means a lot.
Rovman Powell: I knew we were going to win. From the start, we have been begging Pooran to win a toss. In these games, the toss is crucial. Once we restricted them to a low score, we had enough firepower to chase it down. Pooran is wonderful leader, we look upto him. Thanks a lot to Northern Warriors and Rovman Powell fans! Sometimes it is a tough journey but thank you for your support.

Rayad Emrit: I am overwhelmed by emotions. We know Delhi had a strong team. Missing two senior bowlers but the youngsters stepped up. The world is in trouble, especially Trinidad, but we are happy we can win this title. Fidel Edwards keeps getting younger and bowling faster every year!rn Warriors and Rovman Powell fans! Sometimes it is a tough journey but thank you for your support.
That's a really tame end to the game, as Rovman Powell finishes it off in a good manner there, as the Northern Warriors win the 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 League by beating the Delhi Bulls by 8 wickets, with 10 balls to spare. This has been a really dominant performance by the Northern Warriors, as they completed their job in a professional manner, with their bowlers setting up the game for them & their batsmen wrapping up the job, with Waseem Muhammad top-scoring with 27 from 22 balls & he was supported by Lendl Simmons, who scored 14* from 12 balls batting at no.3 as their captain Nicholas Pooran opened the innings today & got 12 runs from 9 balls & Rovman Powell completed the job with an unbeaten 16* from just 8 balls. The Delhi Bulls bowling lineup tried hard, but couldn't do much, with Fidel Edwards and Shiraz Ahmed ending with identical figures of 1/18 from 2 overs each, while the other bowlers not taking any wickets with Waqas Maqsood 0/14 from 2 overs, the captain Dwayne Bravo 0/15 from 2 overs and Nyeem Young conceding 13 runs from 0.2 overs. This couldn't be as good a champion-like display as they came from the Northern Warriors.
8.2 Nyeem Young to Rovman Powell, SIX! SHOT! Powell finishes it off in style! Northern Warriors are the champions of Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021! Short ball on the off stump, Powell goes for the hook shot. Off the top edge and it flies well over the fine leg fence! A brilliant performance by the Warriors and there are fitting champions!
8.2 Nyeem Young to Rovman Powell, FIVE WIDES! OH DEAR! Length ball sprayed down the leg side, some inswing as well which carries it further away from a diving keeper! Runs away to the fine leg fence!
8.1 Nyeem Young to Rovman Powell, full ball on the off stump, Powell shuffles across and heaves that towards deep mi-wicket for a couple of runs. Did not connect well and that is some brilliant work by Edwards on the boundary rope!
Another relatively disciplined over from Bravo, as 9 runs come from it, with the Warriors 72/2 after 8 overs, needing only 10 runs more from 12 balls to win the Final. Nyeem Young, the right-arm pacer comes into bowl now.
Over: 8 | Summary: 1 1 4 1 1 1 Bowler: Dwayne Bravo Score: 72/2
7.6 Dwayne Bravo to Rovman Powell, full ball outside off, Powell leans in and looks to drive it through the covers. Ends up inside-halving it towards mid off for a single 
7.5 Dwayne Bravo to Lendl Simmons, length ball on the middle stump, Simmons opens the face of the bat at the last moment and steers that towards point for a single. 
7.4 Dwayne Bravo to Rovman Powell, length ball on the leg stump, Powell tucks that towards mid on for a single. 
7.3 Dwayne Bravo to Rovman Powell, FOUR! STREAKY! Bumper on the middle stump, Powell swings hard at it but gets the top edge that flies over the keeper's head for a boundary!
7.2 Dwayne Bravo to Lendl Simmons, length ball on the middle stump, Simmons takes a couple of steps down the track and slaps that back to the bowler, who cannot hold onto it and allows the batsmen to take a single as the ball deflects towards mid off. 
7.1 Dwayne Bravo to Rovman Powell, length ball sliding down the leg side, Powell goes after that as he glances it towards deep backward square leg for a single. 
A relatively successful over for the Bulls, as only 6 runs come from it, apart from the wicket & the Warriors are 63/2 after 7 overs, needing only 19 runs more from 18 balls. Captain DJ Bravo continues from the other end.
