Deccan Gladiators are expected to make a swift turnaround by beating Team Abu Dhabi
The 6th match of the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 will be played between Deccan Gladiators and Team Abu Dhabi at Shiekh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Friday.
This match is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM Local Time (10:00 PM IST). It will be live on Sony Sports Network and live streaming is available on Sony LIV and Jio TV.
Deccan Gladiators and Team Abu Dhabi are going to face off in the last game of Friday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Deccan Gladiators lost their first game against Pune Devils as they failed to defend the total of 104 runs. The Kieron Pollard-led side would be looking to make amends in the upcoming game. They are the runners up of the previous season and will want to keep their reputation intact.
Talking about Team Abu Dhabi, they are playing their first game in the league. So, they might not be familiar with the playing conditions and wouldn’t have much hands-on experience about the behaviour of the pitch. They finished 3rd in the previous season and would look to top the group this time.

DGT vs TAD Top picks for Today’s 11Wickets Match:
Cameron Delport is a must-pick player, who can dominate the opposition bowling alley once he starts going on. In the first match against Pune Devils, Delport scored 25 runs before being dismissed by Munis Ansari.
Azam Khan played brilliantly in the last game. He scored 37 off just 13 balls, which helped Deccan Gladiators put more than 100 runs on the board.
Ravi Rampaul looked in good touch with the ball as he went on to pick up a wicket by giving away just 13 runs in his spell.
The skipper of Team Abu Dhabi, Luke Wright was the fourth-highest run-scorer in the previous season for his team. He amassed 208 runs from six games at an average of 52.
There is no introduction needed for the “Universe Boss”, Chris Gayle, who has the ability to tear apart any bowling attack from the very first ball. So, pick him in your team as he is expected to show some fireworks in the upcoming game.
Kieron Pollard did not have the perfect start to his campaign, as he could only score 2 runs in yesterday’s game. That being said, he is a vastly experienced cricketer who has found great success in the shorter formats of the game. So, he is a top pick for your 11Wickets Fantasy team.
