Luke Wright, winning skipper for Team Abu Dhabi: We certainly did well with the bat. It is great seeing so many players playing well. It is wonderful to see our team doing well despite Chris Gayle not scoring too many. If Chris gets going, it will be exciting to see. Sanga (Sangakkara) has been very calm. We just spoke about the guys being calm. He is a great influence.

Obed McCoy of Team Abu Dhabi is the Player of the Match for his outstanding spell of 2/9 from 2 overs.
Team Abu Dhabi finally get off the mark in the Abu Dhabi T10 League as Jamie Overton plays the innings of his life with a 38* from 11 balls, studded with 4 fours & 3 sixes pulling Abu Dhabi over the line, with some vital contributions from Joe Clarke, Paul Stirling & Ben Duckett too coming in handy, despite the Universe Boss & captain Luke Wright failing to register any substantial contributions. Stirling set the stage up with a 23 off 9 balls, with Joe Clarke scoring 29 off 9 balls decorated with 7 fours while Ben Duckett scoring 20 off 9 balls, which ensured that Overton had the Overton window to shift the entire game out of Pune's grasp. For Pune Devils, Hardus Viljoen got 3 wickets, including the wickets of Clarke & Duckett in successive deliveries in the 7th over, but conceded 36 runs for the same. Ahmed Raza & Karan KC got a wicket each too, but were given a bit of smacking around by the Abu Dhabi batsmen, who also took Mohammad Amir & Munis Ansari to the cleaners.
End of over 9 (13 runs), Team Abu Dhabi 130/5
8.3 Munis Ansari to Jamie Overton, full delivery on off stump, Overton goes for three in a row to try and finish things off in style, but gets an edge that's looped high up in the air but it put down by the fielder at cover. The batsmen get a single to seal the victory for their side!

Team Abu Dhabi win by 5 wickets, with 9 balls remaining. 
Jamie Overton has used his long levers to absolute perfection here & has executed a stunning heist here, 37* from 10 balls is nothing short of extraordinary.
8.2 Munis Ansari to Jamie Overton, SIX MORE! In the slot again by Ansari, who misses his mark for two deliveries in a row and Overton sends it back over the bowlers head for another six! What a knock this is turning out to be!
8.1 Munis Ansari to Jamie Overton, SIX! HUGE! Ansari misses his yorker and delivers it in the slot, which is hammered over long on for an absolute monster of a six!
Outstanding over there for Abu Dhabi, as Jamie Overton pinches out 15 runs from it & push the score to 117/5 from 8 overs. Just 13 runs needed from 12 balls now & Munis Ansari returns to the attack to keep Pune in the game now.
Over: 8 | Summary: 1 4 0 1w 4 4 1 Bowler: Mohammad Amir Score: 117/5
7.6 Mohammad Amir to Jamie Overton, full delivery outside off stump, Overton is content to knock it towards the covers, for a single
7.5 Mohammad Amir to Jamie Overton, FOUR MORE! Full delivery outside off stump again, Overton gets to the pitch of it to smash it over extra cover, for another boundary! Excellent batting this!
7.4 Mohammad Amir to Jamie Overton, FOUR! Full delivery outside off stump, Overton throws his hands at it, to slice it towards deep cover for a much needed boundary!
7.4 Mohammad Amir to Jamie Overton, drifting down the leg side. That's called a wide.
7.3 Mohammad Amir to Jamie Overton, full and wide delivery outside off stump, Overton can't reach that one! Good bowling there by Amir!
Jamie Overton has been known to be a really handy & explosive wielder of the long handle for Somerset, which is certainly coming to good effect for Abu Dhabi.
7.2 Mohammad Amir to Jamie Overton, FOUR! Short of a length delivery angled into the batsman, Overton goes for the pull shot, but gets a glove to it which is enough to trickle away to the fence towards fine leg
7.1 Mohammad Amir to Najibullah Zadran, full delivery outside off stump, Najibullah taps it towards the off side, to get a single and put Overton back on strike
Abu Dhabi aren't out of it yet despite losing both Duckett & Clarke, with 12 runs coming off the 7th over, with the score now 102/5 after 7 overs & they need 28 runs from 18 balls. Viljoen ends with 3/36 in 2 overs. Mohammad Amir returns to bowl now, which will decide the fate of this game.
