It is the tournament opener for the Abu Dhabi T10 League, 2021-22, and the defending champions Northern Warriors would be up against the finalists of the last season Delhi Bulls. Both sides have been powerhouses in this format of the game and have done well in the past. It is expected to be a tight contest given the kind of strength we see in the two teams now.
Delhi Bulls have struggled against the Northern Warriors in the past and the big loss in the finals in the last edition is likely to be fresh in their minds. It is a new season and both sides have undergone several changes. The format is exciting, and we should have a good contest on our hands here.
Rovman Powell would have a huge responsibility on his shoulder as he leads the defending champions in the first game. The new skipper would be looking for a great start to the tournament. They had defeated the Bulls in the final of the last edition and the new-look team would look to repeat that success here.
The side would like to see a positive start from Upul Tharanga and Rameez Shahzad as their opponents have an experienced bowling attack. The middle-order has good strength with Powell, Moeen Ali, and Rayad Emrit bringing in lots of experience. The side would also like to see fireworks towards the end from the likes of Abdul Shakoor, Samit Patel, and Chris Jordan who are good hitters of the ball.
They have a strong bowling attack, and the side would like to see tight bowling from Joshua Little and Chris Jordan with the new ball. Moeen Ali and Imran Tahir bring in experience to this attack and they would be expected to keep the scoring rate under check. Patel would have to play the supporting act well in this game.

Dwayne Bravo’s side had done well, and they were unlucky to have finished runner-up. Bravo who has lots of experience in this format of the game shall look to lead from the front and offer a strong start to his side in the game. He has a strong group of players and would expect them to perform at their best in this game.
The side would like to see an electrifying start from Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Rilee Rossouw. They have power hitters in the middle order with Morgan and Mohammad Hafeez and the pair would be expected to do well in this game. Down the order, the side would like to see runs from the bat of Gulbadin Naib, Sherfane Rutherford, and Bravo who are big hitters of the ball.
Their bowling attack would face a tough challenge in this game, and they would like to see tight spells from Akeal Hosein and Adil Rashid opening the bowling for them. Nayeem Young would have to support Bravo in the middle over and bowl tight lines. Naib and Hafeez add variety to this attack.

The skies would be clear over Abu Dhabi on November 19 we expect to see a high-scoring game. There won’t be much on this surface for the bowlers and batsmen would be able to play on the up. The side batting first in this game would aim to put 120 runs or more on the board.
Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi is a large ground, but it has a very quick outfield, and this allows the batsmen to score lots of runs at this venue. Fast bowlers have struggled here in this format of the game as there is nothing for them on the surface. Spinners who use their variations have done well here in the past.
In the 29 games played last season sides chasing the score had won on 21 occasions. The toss has been very important in this format of the game where the sides chasing the score have had an advantage and hence, we see the side winning the toss having no hesitation in bowling first.
It is the first game of the season for both the teams and hence there would be pressure on the sides to perform. Delhi Bulls have retained many of their players from the last edition and shall aim to do well here. Northern Warriors on the other hand have gone in for a new-look side. They have a stronger bowling attack, and this would make them favorites in this game.
