Abu Dhabi T10 – Andrew Fletcher, Nicholas Pooran, Tom Kohler-Cadmore thump Team Abu Dhabi


Deccan Gladiators 141 for 6 (Fletcher 41, Kohler-Cadmore 35, Pooran 30, Mills 2-13, Raees 2-15) beat Team Abu Dhabi 78 for 5 (Du Plooy 25, Thushara 2-5) by 63 runs

Pooran dashed out of the blocks taking left-arm fingerspinner Roelof van der Merwe for two fours and two sixes in the first over. Rumman Raees then dealt a double-blow, removing both Pooran and Andre Russell off successive balls in the fourth over, but Kohler-Cadmore and Fletcher proceeded to re-establish Gladiators’ dominance.

Six of the 12 balls that Fletcher faced were sent to the boundary, including five sixes. Fletcher, Fabian Allen and Kohler-Cadmore all fell in quick succession, but David Wiese provided the final flourish with 15 off six balls.

Abu Dhabi started their chase shakily, losing their top three inside five overs. Leus du Plooy (25), Colin Ingram (19) and captain Dwaine Pretorius (9), fought back to lend some respectability to the scorecard. Sri Lankan slinger Nuwan Thushara, who plays for Jaffna Kings in the LPL, was the pick of the bowlers for Gladiators, coming away with 2 for 5 in his two overs.
