The following is what Luke Wright the Team Abu Dhabi skipper had to say in the post-match presentation:
"We were 15-20 runs short for sure as the Tigers bowlers bowled really well towards the back end so we had to bowl well. We dropped of chances which we thought might cost us but credit to our bowls as they defended the total really well."
Charles finally perished after scoring 59 runs after that, the Tigers just crumbled one after another. As they crumbled, so did their hopes to make it into the top 4 and to reach the playoffs of Abu Dhabi T10 2020. Jamie Overton took 3 wickets in the final over and 4th over for this match. He with that registered the best figures by a bowler in this tournament [2-0-24-4]!
He had the last laugh as he got the wicket of Tom Moores on the final ball of that over making it even tougher for Bangla Tigers. They went on to lose 3 wickets in the span of the last 8 balls which included the key wicket of Charles who was fighting alone for the Tigers.
57 runs were needed for the Tigers in the remaining 30 balls. They then took the floating powerplay but Rohan Mustafa who bowled that over bowled it quickly and conceded just 3 runs from it. Obed who bowled the following over was hit for a maximum but pulled things back nicely.
Charles continued to fight the lone battle as he saw Chirag Suri lose his wicket as well. Charles hitting the boundaries ensured that his side remained well into this run chase. Abu Dhabi were under the pump as Charles really turning it on batting out in the middle and scoring those boundaries
Coming in to chase 116 runs, the Tigers were off to a flying start thanks to Johnson Charles who started to find the fence straight away. The scoring rate slowed down a bit after the first over Rohan Mustafa bowled out a quick over and Andre lost his wicket in the third over.
Jamie gets 3 wickets in the final over and has registered the best figures for a bowler in this edition of the T10 Tournament. Fazal on the hat trick ball whacked out a maximum and took everyone for a surprise!!

9.6 Jamie Overton to Fazal Haque, OUT! EDGED AND GONE! Length ball on the off stump, Haque backs away and looks to slap it down the ground. Gets a feather on it en route the keeper, who pouches it with ease! A four-fer for Overton and he is overjoyed!

9.1 Jamie Overton to George Garton, OUT! CAUGHT! Low full toss on the off stump angling away, Garton looks to muscle it away.
