This is me, Mohul Bhowmick, signing off also on behalf of my partner Bala from this exciting game in the Abu Dhabi T10. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did bringing it to you. Until next time, goodbye!
Kennar Lewis, Northern Warriors: It was a very challenging encounter. Sad with the result but proud of the way the boys performed today. This is the first time that they came onto the park and to perform the way they did was impressive. We will get back stronger and try to take positives from this game.
Delhi Bulls beat Northern Warriors by 4 runs!
Usman Khan 47 (26) | Shiraz Ahmed 3/1
Tim David 42 (18) | Junaid Siddique 2/27

The Warriors never really looked like they were in the chase, and gave up soon after their openers were dismissed. As soon as Adam Lyth and big hitting West Indian wicketkeeper batter Kennar Lewis were dismissed, the total seemed beyond the reach of the Warriors. 

The Bulls pulled things back as much as they could and as soon as they could. However, things went out of hand when the likes of Waqas Maqsood and Imad Wasim were hit for considerable number of runs. However, Richard Gleeson and Dwayne Bravo did rather well for themselves and allowed their side to get back in the game. 

When needing seven runs off the last over, Shiraz Ahmed kept his cool and ensured that the win went to his side and not the Warriors. This was a terrific win for the Bulls and this will give them a huge boost of confidence! Shiraz Ahmed, take a bow!

9.6 Shiraz Ahmed to Mark Deyal, OUT! My word! Oh, Deyal! Warriors have made a mess of this. Deyal attempts a scoop off the last delivery with five runs to win. All he manages to do is to lob it up straight to Bravo at short fineleg

9.5 Shiraz Ahmed to Mark Deyal, beaten! Full ball angling across the left-hander. Goes with hard hands and misses! What a brilliant final over! 5 required off the final delivery!
Mark Deyal. LHB, is the new batter.
9.4 Shiraz Ahmed to Usman Khan, OUT! What drama! Traps him in front of the stumps! Full and straight on the stumps. He moves across trying to go over the on-side. Everything is happening out here!

Usman Khan lbw b Shiraz Ahmed 47 (26b 5x4 2x6)
9.3 Shiraz Ahmed to Liam Dawson, moves across the crease in a bid to scoop it over short fineleg. Fails to make contact though. Huge appeal from the bowler for leg before but the umpire isn't impressed
Liam Dawson, RHB, is the new batter.
9.2 Shiraz Ahmed to Sherfane Rutherford, OUT! Is there a twist in this tale? Fuller delivery angling right across. He tries to belt it right across the line and gets a leading edge. Drakes comes in from the cover boundary and completes a smart catch

Shane Rutherford c Dominic Drakes b Shiraz Ahmed 26 (12b 3x4 1x6)

8.6 Dwayne Bravo to Sherfane Rutherford, FOUR! Fortuitous, but it hardly matters! Swings across the line this time but gets a leading edge. Clears the fielder at short thirdman and rolls away to the boundary
8.5 Dwayne Bravo to Sherfane Rutherford, FOUR! BLASTED! Full ball outside off, but just not full enough. He plays a swashbuckling drive through extra cover and finds the boundary
8.4 Dwayne Bravo to Usman Khan, full and straight around the off-stump. Off the inside edge of the bat to mid-wicket
8.3 Dwayne Bravo to Usman Khan, SIX! Gets hold of it this time. Short delivery at pace. Usman does well to get his hands through the ball and times it well
8.2 Dwayne Bravo to Usman Khan, FOUR! Up and over! Slower ball in the slot. Not a perfectly timed shot but gets enough to clear the man at mid-on
8.1 Dwayne Bravo to Sherfane Rutherford, brilliant effort! Full ball around the off-stump. Rutherford smokes it along the carpet to wide mid-off. Cox puts in a fantastic dive to stop the ball. Saves a boundary and keeps Rutherford away from strike
