It is the second game of the season at the Abu Dhabi T10 League, 2021-22, and Team Abu Dhabi would be up against the Bangla Tigers. There would be pressure on both the teams to make a strong start to the tournament here. Both teams have roped in some of the best short-format players, and it would be interesting to see which of the teams emerge victorious in this game.
Team Abu Dhabi has one of the strongest batting line-ups of all the teams and they would look to take full advantage of it on a flat surface. Bangla Tigers would like to put behind the poor show from the last edition. Fortunes change quickly in this format and hence this would be an interesting game.
Rohan Mustafa is back as skipper, and he would be looking for a good start to the season. Mustafa would be confident about the batting strength his side has and shall look to cash in on that here. Their bowling looks slightly weak, and the Abu Dhabi skipper shall have to make good use of the resources at his disposal here.
Chris Gayle and Paul Stirling form a very strong opening pair and the side would like to see a good start from them here. In the middle order, the side would expect to see Liam Livingstone, Colin Ingram and Mustafa play strong hands. They have good hitters of the ball to follow in Jamie Overton and Chris Benjamin and they would be tasked with doing the heavy lifting towards the end.
Their bowling attack doesn’t look all that strong, especially in the spin department. The side would hope to see early strikes from Sheldon Cottrell and Naveen-ul-Haq in this game. Noor Ahmed and Farooq Momand must make good use of the conditions here as their opponents too have a strong batting line-up. Overton and Livingstone add bowling options for the side.

Faf du Plessis comes in as the skipper for the team in this edition and he would surely have big plans for the team. The former South African skipper would be happy with the balance in the squad. They have been inconsistent in the last few editions and du Plessis would like to start the tournament on a strong note.
The side would expect to see a good start in this game from Andre Fletcher and Johnson Charles who have experience of batting together. In the middle order, du Plessis must steer the innings with Chirag Suri and Adam Lyth. Down the order runs would be expected from the bat of James Faulkner, Karim Janat, and Isuru Udana.
Their bowlers would have a big task on hand and the side would need a good opening spell from Mohammad Amir and Qais Ahmed. Karim Janat and Hassan Khalid will have to bowl well in tandem in the middle overs of the game. The side would also need Udana and Faulkner to play the supporting act well in this game.

The skies would be clear over Abu Dhabi on November 19, and we expect to see a warm evening. The ball is expected to come onto the bat nicely on this flat surface. There would be much for the bowlers on this wicket. The side batting first would need at least 120 runs on the board to feel safe on this wicket.
A large ground, Sheikh Zayed Stadium has a flat surface and a fast outfield, and we have seen lots of runs being scored by the batsmen here. Fast bowlers have found it tough to bowl on this wicket as there is little assistance for them. Spinners have enjoyed the conditions as the ball tends to turn sharply on this wicket.
Win the toss, bowl first and win the game has been the mantra in this tournament in the past. In the last edition teams batting first won only 8 out of the 29 games batting first. This would be on the minds of both the skippers and the side winning the toss would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first.
Bangla Tigers have in the past suffered from the problem of inconsistency. They have a new-look side, and it would be interesting to see how their players gel together in this game. Team Abu Dhabi has one of the strongest batting line-ups in the tournament and they would look to make a statement here. Their batting strength would put the side nose ahead of Bangla Tigers in the game.
