The Chennai Braves are favorites to win
Bangla Tigers will take on Chennai Braves at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Match 8 of the 2022 Abu Dhabi T10 gets underway at 20:30 local time on Friday 24th November.
After winning the opening game of the competition against New York Strikers, Bangla Tigers were unable to make it two wins from two as they lost to Morrisville Samp Army by 15 runs on Thursday afternoon. Chasing 101 to win, the Tigers came up short on 85-3.
Although Afghan opener Hazratullah Zazai top scored for Bangla Tigers with 35 runs from 26 balls on Thursday, he will need to go at a better strike-rate in this game. England’s Joe Clarke has scored only nine runs across both games and he will be desperate to perform in this match.
Benny Howell added to his growing white ball reputation with figures of 2-17 from his two overs against Morrisville Samp Army in Match 3. Young Sri Lankan, Matheesha Pathirana has impressed in both games with figures of 2-22 and 1-10 and batters will be wary of facing him in this game.
The defeat on Thursday means Bangla Tigers have won only one of their last four games.
It was a disappointing start to the 2022 Abu Dhabi T10 tournament for Chennai Braves who were beaten by New York Strikers by 27 runs on Thursday evening. After winning the toss and choosing to field first, they restricted the Strikers to 99-6 but could only post 72-6 in reply.
The Chennai Braves batters will be looking to make amends for their poor performance on Thursday in this match. Left handed opener Dawid Malan was dismissed second ball for a duck but he is a fine white ball player and is more than capable of responding with a big score in this game.
English all-rounder James Fuller was the most impressive of Chennai Braves’ bowlers against New York Strikers. He took 3-15 from his two overs and will be full of confidence ahead of this clash. Captain Sikandar Raza conceded only 12 runs as well as dismissing Eoin Morgan and he will be a threat again.
Chennai Braves have won only one of their last five matches in the Abu Dhabi T10.
The match will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. The ball seems to pick up pace off the surface in Abu Dhabi and it is an excellent pitch for boundary hitting batters.
