Thank you for reading the news about New York Strikers crowned new champions of Abu Dhabi T10 and now with the details
Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - ABU DHABI: New York Strikers wiped away the pain of the last edition’s loss to Deccan Gladiators in the final to be crowned the new champions of the Abu Dhabi T10 in its seventh edition at the Zayed Cricket Stadium by recording a seven-wicket win.
Pakistan’s Asif Ali, known for his power-hitting skills, and skipper Kieron Pollard, put on an unbeaten 56 runs partnership for the fourth wicket in 29 balls.
Ali remained unbeaten on 48 off 25 balls with four sixes and two boundaries while Pollard scored an unconquered 21 off 13 balls with one boundary and a six to win the final with four balls to spare.
They lifted the trophy and received the prize money of $100,000.
It was an impressive show from New York Strikers, who had become part of the Abu Dhabi T10 only in the last edition and have reached the final in both the editions and now won the title too.
Gladiators, who were hoping to record a hat-trick of title triumphs having won the earlier two editions, received the runners-up prize money of $50,000.
Their plans to post a big total were squashed by Sunil Narine who bagged two wickets for six runs from his two overs and restricted Deccan Gladiators to 91 for five. It was the same total that New York Strikers were restricted to in the last edition’s final that Gladiators won by 37 runs.
The player of the match award went to Ali, while Akeal Hosein won the player and bowler of the tournament titles, Tom Kohler-Cadmore was named batter of the tournament, and UAE player of the tournament was awarded to Mohammed Jawadulah.
