On Thursday, the Northern Warriors will play the Bangla Tigers in the Abu Dhabi T10 League's final game of the season.
With only two wins and seven losses in nine games this season, the Northern Warriors have had a bad run. Matter what the outcome of this game, they will finish second-last in the league rankings.
On the other hand, the Bangla Tigers have qualified for the playoffs. With five victories and four losses in nine games, they are in the fourth position in the standings. The Tigers will try to gain momentum for the upcoming Eliminator, while the Warriors will try to end their disappointing season with a win.
The Warriors were defeated by the Chennai Braves by 10 wickets in their most recent match. The Warriors batted first and put up a dismal score of 110/8 in 9.5 overs. Upul Tharanga and Rovman Powell both scored the thirties in short succession for the side.
The Tigers were defeated by the Deccan Gladiators by 62 runs in their previous game. The Gladiators batted first and set up a tremendous total of 140/1 in 10 overs. Luke Wood took the only wicket for his team, but he was too pricey the rest of the way, handing up 36 runs in his two overs.
The batting surface has been consistent throughout the tournament and has been a batsman's dream. The team that wins the coin toss will almost certainly field first.
