The misery for the Northern Warriors seem to have no end as the team suffered yet another loss in the Abu Dhabi T10 League. This was their fourth loss in as many games and their hopes of reaching the playoffs have taken a massive dip. They suffered a 6 wicket loss to Deccan Gladiators, who won their third game in four matches.

Warriors batting has been an issue throughout the series and once again the team displayed a poor show with the bat. Warriors could only post 70 runs in their 10 overs, which was never going to be sufficient. The target was easily wiped out by Deccan Gladiators, with 6 wickets and 3 overs to spare.

In the second game, Chennai Braves were crushed by Bangla Tigers. Braves failed to post a decent total on the board and could only manage 90-6 in their quota of overs. Bangla Tigers’ batting too had been shaky in the previous games but they put on an astounding show to make a mockery of the target.

Johnson Charles gave the team a blistering start and scored 36 at a strike rate of 300. Hazratullah Zazai, on the other hand, smashed 34 at a strike rate of 377.38, off just 9 balls, to hand Bangla Tigers an easy win. The team cruised to a win in just 4.2 overs. Like the warriors, Braves too stay winless in the tournament so far.
