Player of the match: Karim Janat
 
That's two out of three games done on this Super Sunday but the action rolls on in the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2022. The Delhi Bulls and the Deccan Gladiators are set to lock horns in a little while from now so do head over here to catch our coverage of that contest right here on Sportskeeda. Who knows, you could be in for a birthday special from Suresh Raina himself so you don't want to miss out on that game. For the moment though, this is the duo of Bala and Sooryanarayanan thanking you for joining us for this contest as we hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did bringing the coverage of it to you. Wishing you a great week ahead - good night and see you around soon!
A happy captain there is Moeen Ali. He may not have left a big impression on the game today but didn't his team step up and deliver yet again. Morrisville Samp Army are riding a superb wave of momentum in their debut season with three wins in as many games. The Chennai Braves have lost one after a win in their last game and now have two points from three games. Momentum is a key factor and they will be itching to return to winning ways when they take the field next. To that end, they'll surely want to work on their catching alright!
Moeen Ali (Morrisville Samp Army Captain): So far so good. We're playing well but there's still a long way to go. Most teams have played four games, we've just played three. A bit of a difference there. We're happy with the way we're playing. Lot of match-winners and we'll look to keep the momentum going. The energy has been really good. The coaches have been brilliant and the owners as well. There might be a couple of changes here and there just to rest a few players and give the others a bit of a run. (On the format) It is great and it does improve a lot of people's games.
Karim Janat is the Player of the Match for his match-winning unbeaten 58. Here's what he has to say: I would firstly thank the coaching staff who have been supporting me. The pressure is always there when you want to do well for the team. We have a lot of firepower at the top and our bowling is very solid. So we try to score as many runs as possible. This format is such that even if you play one good over it can change the momentum. I was just looking at cashing in on the deliveries in my zone.
Match summary: Morrisville Samp Army beat The Chennai Braves by 8 wickets with four deliveries to spare.

Karim Janat 58* (28) | Anrich Nortje 2/11 (2)
Dawid Malan 32 (20) | Carlos Brathwaite 1/19 (1.2)

At the halfway mark, Dawid Malan reckoned that the Braves were 10-15 short. He was right, wasn't he? They definitely left a few runs out there with 105 never really looking enough to match the might of the Morrisville batting unit. Their bowlers though, to their credit, gave it everything.

Johnson Charles was up and running in a trice with a flurry of boundaries and seemed to be in a hurry to catch the next cinema show. Moeen Ali fell to the short ball after being handed a lifeline and there were lifelines galore thereafter with the Braves fielders just not backing up the efforts of their bowlers. Even the simplest of catching chances went down despite Charles also falling soon and the run-rate slowing down.

Karim Janat was shored up the order ahead of David Miller and Shimron Hetmyer. Miller gave him company as the asking rate rose steadily with Sikandar Raza doing his best to try and tie them down. Janat swung like a rusty gate for a good part of his stay. It was a case of all or nothing - when he middled it, it soared all the way but when he didn't, he could only say good evening to the thin Abu Dhabi air around him.

Sam Cook started off well with the ball but a poor penultimate over meant that Morrisville had the upper hand. Carlos Brathwaite was tasked with defending 11 off the final over but Janat clubbed two biggies to rack up a half-century and wrap up the chase for his side. Three out of three then for Morrisville - aren't they flying high in their debut season or what!
Game, set and match to Morrisville Samp Army. And that's thrice in as many games that we can say this for the tournament. What a chase and what a knock from Karim Janat. Take a bow! Morrisville Samp Army wrap up an 8-wicket victory!
9.2 Carlos Brathwaite to Karim Janat, SIX! WOW! He has finished it off in style! Have to say, not many would have expected Samp Army to chase it down with four balls to spare given where they were couple of overs ago. Low full toss from Brathwaite, he opens up his stance and smokes it over the long-on boundary
A half-century under pressure for Karim Janat! Hasn't he stepped up to the plate today! 100 up for Morrisville Samp Army and they're just one hit away now...
9.1 Carlos Brathwaite to Karim Janat, SIX! Out of here! Just the perfect way to start off the final over. In the slot and slogged over the mid-wicket fence
Carlos Brathwaite [1.0-0-7-1] to bowl the final over of the game
It's another last over finish. This contest hasn't twisted and turned at every end, yet has moved along in a manner that has continued to keep both teams in the hunt. Final over coming up - Morrisville Camp Army require 11 runs to win!

8.6 Sam Cook to David Miller, swing and a miss! It could be a vital moment in the game. Slower ball full outside off. Miller swings across the line and misses
Poor delivery from Cook. Free swing of the blade on this upcoming final delivery for Miller. If he can clear the fence here, you'd think that's one hand on the win for Morrisville.
8.5 Sam Cook to David Miller, FOUR! Absolute freebie! Those two looseners have once again shifted the balance. Full toss on the stumps, Miller whips it away to the square leg boundary. Easy pickings
Fine leg is up.
8.4 Sam Cook to Karim Janat, full and straight on the stumps. Jabs it out to long-on and takes one
Nope. You just cannot drop it that short, especially at this stage.
8.3 Sam Cook to Karim Janat, SIX! They wanted it badly and Cook serves up a dolly. Right in the slot at pace, Janat slogs it over the square leg fence
22 needed off 10...
