Well folks, that's it from the games tonight, see you soon when we come back right here for the upcoming playoffs.

The win will place Warriors on top of the table on Group B, and that will be how they qualify for the playoffs. The Arabians, meanwhile, languish at the bottom in the same group.
There is no doubt has to who will win the match ball - it has to be the one and only Nicholas Pooran. What a thunderous knock by him, tonight.
Zahoor Khan will bowl the eighth over.

The first ball is dispatched for a four, and with that the Northern Warriors win by eight wickets.

Northern Warriors 95/2 after 7.1 overs

It was a comprehensive chase, with Powell, Russell and Simmons making sure they never lost sight of the target. An attention to all sides - the Warriors may be one team that everyone got to be wary of, as they have rightly chosen to demonstrate.

Also, with that finishes the Group stage contests in the 2018 T-10 League.
Dwayne Bravo comes back for his second over.

Russell hits another six and along with Simmons, scores 4 runs to take the side closer to the target, but loses his wicket in the final ball. Russell 15(10) c Taylor b Bravo, 91/2 in 6.6 overs.

Rovman Powell comes to the crease.

The side needs just 4 runs to win, with 12 balls remaining.

Warriors 91/2 after 7 overs.
Rashid comes back to bowl.

Wicket! Pooran finally departs, but not before he has done all the damage. Pooran 62(24, 4 4s and 6 6s) c Hales b Rashid, 73/1 in 5.1 overs.

Andre Russell comes in. Hits the six that takes the over's tally to 8 runs.

Warriors 81/1 after 6 overs.
Dwayne Bravo comes into the attack now.

The tale continues. Yet another over that goes for more than ten runs - 13, in this case, and Pooran accounts for another four and six.

Warriors 73/0 after 5 overs.

They now just need 22 more runs in 4 overs. Should be easy.
van der Merwe is the new bowler.

And Pooran takes charge of the over completely. The over reads: 2 6 0 6 4 1. 19 runs that is, for both his team and himself. Also brings up his own fifty in the process.

Warriors 60/0 after 4 overs.
James Faulkner comes into the attack.

Pooran continues from where he left off in the previous game. Continuous sixes form a part of the 16 runs scored in the over.

Warriors 41/0 after 3 overs.
Richard Gleeson opens bowling from the other end.

A four from Simmons and a six from Pooran, apart from five other runs make things going really well for Warriors.

Warriors 25/0 after 2 overs.

And the chase is back.

Simmons and Pooran at the crease for Warriors. They will start by facing Rashid Khan.

Ten runs off it, including two fours from Pooran.

Warriors 10/0 after 1 over.

So the Northern Warriors need 95 runs to win in 54 balls. Will they go past it? Or will the Marathas complete a turnaround?

Stay tuned to the chase that begins soon.
Final over duties go to Viljoen.

And it's another wicket. Viljoen has a field day out here tonight. Faulkner finds Sammy's safe hands attempting a shot. Faulkner 2(5) c Sammy b Viljoen, 90/6 in 8.1 overs.

Roelof van der Merwe will replace him.

Only four runs get added in the over, as Warriors wrap things up very well. It is job half done by them. Now to chase it up.

Arabians 94/6 after 9 overs.
Wahab Riaz who had a very good first over, will bowl the penultimate over of the innings, now.

Just ten runs off it. Bravo smashes one over midwicket.

Arabians 90/5 after 8 overs.
Hardus Viljoen is the latest bowler.

Wicket! Rashid Khan lasts just 4 balls. Holes out to Darren Sammy. Rashid 7(4) c Sammy b Viljoen, 68/4 in 6.2 overs.

Dwayne Bravo comes to the crease.

Meanwhile Najibullah hits two more sixes and departs, in what is Viljoen's second wicket of the over. Powell is the fielder who will catch him. Najibullah 27(9) c Powell b Viljoen, 80/5 in 6.5 overs.

James Faulkner comes to the crease.

13 runs scored in the over, but at the expense of two wickets. But I guess it is fine as long as the runs keep coming. Northern Warriors ideally in the box seat, right now.

Arabians 80/5 after 7 overs.
Andre Russell is back, and he uproots Brendan Taylor's stumps easily. Wicket! Taylor 15(7) b Russell, 58/3 in 5.2 overs.

The wicket came immediately after Taylor struck his third four. Rashid Khan will replace him now.

A six and three runs later, the over concludes. 13 runs scored there.

Arabians 67/3 after 6 overs.
Small update, the match has been reduced to nine overs a side, to make up for lost time.
Najibullah Zadran is the new batsman, while Ravi Bopara will begin bowling right now.

Zadran announces himself in style. Two maximum fly over long on. 15 runs from that over, good one for the batting side.

Arabians 54/2 after 5 overs.

Halfway into the innings now, the Arabians. Might want to do better from now, given the hitting power of the Warriors.
Wahab Riaz is the new bowler.

And wicket! Alex Hales edges the ball to Nick Pooran. Breakthrough moment for Warriors. Hales 13(10) c Pooran b Riaz, 30/1 in 3.2 overs.

Brendan Taylor comes to the crease.

Taylor smashes a couple of fours before rotating strike once, followed by Zazai gifting his wicket away to the Warriors. Riaz on a roll. Got two dangermen back in the hut. Zazai 16(11) b Riaz, 39/2 in 3.6 overs.

More than the runs scored, the loss of the wickets may prove to be crucial for the Arabians. Good over for Warriors.

Arabians 39/2 after 4 overs.
Chris Green has bowled out his spell, with his second over just got completed. 12 runs came from the over, as Zazai first hit a four followed by Hales who did two better.

Arabians 29/0 after 3 overs.
The delayed start may just have given both sides more preparation time, which they should have used judiciously. We will know better as the game progresses. The rain that fell seems to have made the outfield a bit more slippery and faster too.
Andre Russel comes into the bowling attack.

Ten runs off it, and that will include Hazratullah Zazai's hits to the long on and fine leg ropes, once each.

Arabians 17/0 after 2 overs.
Hazratullah Zazai and Hales opens the batting for Arabians. Chris Green will start bowling for Warriors.

Seven runs off that over, as Hales finds the fence once.

Arabians 7/0 after 1 over.
Playing XIs:

Maratha Arabians: Hazratullah Zazai, Alex Hales, Rashid Khan, Brendan Taylor (wk), James Faulkner, Dwayne Bravo(c), Roelof van der Merwe, Richard Gleeson, Najibullah Zadran, S. Badrinath and Zahoor Khan.

Northern Warriors: Lendl Simmons, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Rovman Powell, Ravi Bopara, Amitoze Singh, Daren Sammy(c), Hardus Viljoen, Imran Haider, Chris Green, and Wahab Riaz.
The toss is here.

And, the Northern Warriors will field first after winning the toss.
More updates, the covers are off. Toss is likely to commence soon, and players continue to warm up. Looks like the game will happen.
An update from the previous game: both the Kerala Knights and the Rajputs shared points after the match got abandoned. But by virtue of their enormous run-rate, mainly from the win in their first game when they chased 96 runs in 4 overs after restricting the Sindhis to 94 in 10, the Rajputs will go into the next stage as second to Pakhtoons in Group A.

In case of a similar scenario in this game as well, right now the Northern Warriors would go to the next stage along with first-placed Bengal Tigers, from Group B. The huge score of 183 which they amassed in the last game, would help them there.
It was raining earlier at the venue, so much that the previous game was called off. It is yet to be known as to how the rains will impact this game.
Maratha Arabians vs Northern Warriors: PREVIEW

The final game of Group B will see the Maratha Arabians take on the Northern Warriors. The encounter will have plenty of Caribbean flair as two former Windies captains, Dwayne Bravo and Darren Sammy will face each other in Sharjah.

Bengal Tigers are currently top of Group B courtesy of their win over Punjabi Legends on Saturday. But Northern Warriors, who began their campaign with a loss against the Tigers can overtake them and claim top spot if they can make it two wins in a row and build on their massive win over the Punjabi Legends.

Maratha Arabians are currently in fourth in Group B but know that all it takes is a win to get them to the top. After a loss to the Punjabi Legends to start their campaign, they too are coming into this encounter on the back of a morale-boosting win over the Tigers.

Both teams know that a win will all but guarantee them of top spot in the group. While the Arabians need a comprehensive win to boost their run rate, Warriors know that any victory is enough to end their Group B campaign with a win and top spot.

Who will come out on top in the 12th game of the T10 League and go one step closer to clinching the title? Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium in Sharjah will have the answer.
