In the 8th match of T10 League 2019, Bangla Tigers locked horns with Karnataka Tuskers at the same stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Sent into bat first, Tuskers piled up a mammoth 114/1 in 10 overs, courtesy Johnson Charles’ 57 and captain Hashim Amla’s 47* off 29 deliveries each.

Chasing the massive target, Tigers got off to a flying start as Andre Fletcher (40 off 15 balls) and Rilee Rossouw (22 off 10 balls) took the attack to the cleaners.

After the dismissal of both the openers, Tigers lost Colin Ingram (4) and skipper Thisara Perera (3) cheaply. But wicketkeeper batsman Tom Moores’ unbeaten cameo of 9-ball 28 helped the team to get over the line with 7 balls to spare.

Karnataka Tuskers – 114/1 in 10 overs (Johnson Charles 57; Kevin Koththigoda 1/21) lost to Bangla Tigers – 117/5 in 8.5 overs (Andre Fletcher 40; Sandeep Lamichhane 2/9) by 5 wickets.
