12.07am  Team Abu Dhabi had their moments in the game but could not covert them into something substantial. Peter Hatzoglou was brilliant with the ball and picked two wickets to bring them back in the game when they were under the pump in the first half.They, however, needed their big guns Chris Lynn and Alex Hales to fire with the bat but that did not happen and despite some decent knocks by Vince and Allen they have fallen way short of the target. They need to pull their socks and come up with better performance in the next game.
12.01am  Deccan Gladiators have some genuine wicket-takes in their bowling line-up and they were always going to be tough to get away especially when they had a good score on the board. The score of 134 that they got with the bat was largely because of their skipper Nicholas Pooran who smashed 77 off 33 balls. In the bowling department, Tabraiz Shamsi picked up an important wicket of Chris Lynn while Zahoor Khan bowled pretty well to take two wickets which included a big wicket of Hales. Little and Tom Helm also did their job to perfection and overall it was a clinical bowling display from Deccan Gladiators.
11.56pm  The defending champions, Deccan Gladiators have started their tournament with a bang! They have delivered a comprehensive performance against a very strong team Team Abu Dhabi and would be proud of their effort. It is a short format and it is about winning those key moments and one or two players standing up and that is what exactly happened in this game as Deccan Gladiators skipper Nicholas Pooran stood up with the bat when others around him failed to get going.
