Team Abu Dhabi won by 21 runs.
Player of the match: Rohan Mustafa
That's it from the 3rd place match as Team Abu Dhabi clinch the 3rd position in the T10 League. From myself, Sarthak Karkhanis and my colleague, Maanas Upadhyay, Adios! Stay tuned for the coverage of the final 
Team Abu Dhabi dominated the chase right from the start. Ben-Drummond did play a great knock as he scored a 46 off 19 deliveries but he was the lone warrior for the Qalandars. Ben Dunk and Sohail Akhtar went in double-digits but other than that no batsman put up a fight. Mustafa picked a couple of wickets and conceded just 19 off his overs while McCoy and Overton conceded at less than 10 RPO.  
Over: 10 | Summary: 4 4 1 6 4lb 0 Bowler: Tom Helm Score: 103/5
9.6 Tom Helm to Danyal Ahmed, no run, another brilliant bouncer on the middle stump, Ahmed looks to heave that across the line but misses completely. A dot to finish and with that, Team Abu Dhabi beat the Qalandars by 21 runs and finish third!
9.5 Tom Helm to Danyal Ahmed, FOUR! LEG-BYES! Sharp bumper on the body, Ahmed looks to evade it at the last moment. strikes him on the shoulder and flies over the keeper's head for a boundary!
9.4 Tom Helm to Danyal Ahmed, SIX! SHOT! Back of the hand slower delivery on the off stump, Ahmed picks the variation early, gets into position and spanks that over the long on region for a maximum!
9.3 Tom Helm to Sohail Tanvir, slower length ball on the leg stump, pulled to deep mid-wicket for a single. 
9.2 Tom Helm to Sohail Tanvir, FOUR MORE! Full ball outside off, Tanvir clears his front foot and drives that through the extra cover region. Mustafa at mid off gets his fingertips on it but cannot stop that!
With just 4 runs of that penultimate over, Qalandars' hopes of winning it are mathematically impossible but formalities remain. 
9.1 Tom Helm to Sohail Tanvir, FOUR! Poor fielding there! Full ball outside off angling away, Tanvir heaves it into the leg side. The fielder at long on cannot stop that and the ball runs away to the fence!
Over: 9 | Summary: 0 1 1 2 W 0 Bowler: Obed McCoy Score: 84/5
8.6 Obed McCoy to Danyal Ahmed, no run, swing and a miss. Slower length ball outside off, Ahmed looks to hoick it across the line. Cannot make any connection whatsoever. 
A change of shoes for McCoy as his previous pair has torn. 
8.5 Obed McCoy to Ali Khan, OUT! CAUGHT! Slower back of a length ball on the middle stump angling away, Khan cannot get the pull shot out of the middle of the bat. Ends up playing that straight into the hands of the fielder at deep mid-wicket, who pouches it with ease!
8.4 Obed McCoy to Ali Khan, slower full ball on the leg stump, Khan works that towards deep mid-wicket for a couple of runs. A direct hit would have sent Ahmed packing!
8.3 Obed McCoy to Danyal Ahmed, back of a length ball on the body, Ahmed pulls that to deep backward square leg for a single. 
8.2 Obed McCoy to Ali Khan, slower bouncer on the leg stump dug in, Khan swivel-pulls it along the ground to long leg for a single. 
Just 4 runs off that over and with Samit Patel back in the hut, Qalandars have an uphill task of chasing this total down. 
8.1 Obed McCoy to Ali Khan, no run, slower ball on the fourth stump line angling away, Khan loses his shape as he looks to work it into the leg side. No connection and a dot to begin with.
