Abu Dhabi T10: New York Strikers beat Northen Warriors in low-scoring clash

A spirited bowling display by New York Strikers restricted Northern Warriors to 88 for 3 in 10 overs. Northern Warriors, however, refused to surrender easily and fought till the last over before losing the match by three wickets with only five balls remaining in the ninth match of the Abu Dhabi T10 at the Zayed Cricket Stadium.

Northern Warriors’ total of 88 was mainly through Colin Munro, who hit an unbeaten 44 off 27 balls with three boundaries and three sixes. Though New York Strikers thought it would be an easy win, wickets fell at regular intervals. Northern Warriors’ skipper Angelo Mathews, Abhimanyu Mithun and Tabraiz Shamsi picked up two wickets apiece to almost pull off an exciting win.

Muhammad Waseem (23) and Rahmanullah Gurbaz (22) played a vital role in this well-fought New York Strikers’ win. This defeat snapped Northern Warrior’s run of two consecutive victories.
