Northern Warriors and Deccan Gladiators will square off in the sixth match of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2022 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the venue that is hosting the entire tournament. The Warriors are coming off a win from their campaign opener, which took place on November 23, Wednesday, against Team Abu Dhabi as they bagged a 35-run victory.
This will be the second game for Northern Warriors too, but they’ll be playing their contest in less than 24 hours after the completion of their first game. It will be a hectic schedule for the Warriors, and the Gladiators will look to take advantage of the day’s break that they have received. The Gladiators’ skipper Nicholas Pooran looked like a force to reckon with in the first game and would be hoping to continue his good touch.

At the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, batting first results in an average score of 110, thus bowlers will have to be cautious and devise strategies properly in order to prevent the opposition from amassing a high total.
