ADKR 114/9 (20)


4.5
Rampaul to James Vince, FOUR, Rampaul goes short and James Vince has pulled this towards the leg-side boundary once again. Taking him on now, dealing in boundaries is the Giants captain

4.4
Rampaul to James Vince, SIX, that's a maximum! Rampaul goes short and James Vince pulls this over deep backward square leg as the ball hits the cushions on the full, that's half-a-dozen lol

Sunil Narine: I think we needed more runs. Couple of wickets in the powerplay setup the game nicely for them. It boils down to making runs, if you bat first, you need to put a total. That's wha.t we need to do as a batting unit. I think it was a nice surface, they bowled really well. We have it a good hit. Russ came in and got a couple of wickets but Alex Hales pulled them back. I think a small total, one good partnership is enough and that's what happened


3 GAMES NO WIN lol

I tuned in for a couple of matches and in each case I couldn't make it past the first few overs of play. What I saw was just boring. There are very few spectators in the stands so there's no real atmosphere. Much of the time the cameras focused on the owners' boxes as if I were supposed to know who they are. Plus the broadcasts I saw had no commentary; that's okay if there's ambience provided by the spectators but since there were no spectators the absence of commentators made the matches feel lifeless.

Maybe you would find it more interesting if ADKR were 3-0 rather than 0-3

Just read that these matches aren't counted for 'official T20' status.

That has to suck for the players (if you're trying to parlay it into contracts elsewhere).

Remember apart from the IPL this is the highest paid T 20 league

Dubai Capitals vs Gulf Giants, 8th Match


17.4
Udana to Hetmyer, SIX, full, high above the waist. Surely a no ball? Hetmyer surprised and swung losing balance, the ball flies over short third man off the top edge. Incredible it went all the way. Actually it just dipped under the waist

17.3
Udana to Hetmyer, SIX, Hetmyer with a timely six. Short slower delivery, Hetmyer pulled this and actually was worried about being caught at deep mid-wicket but this just had enough legs to clear the fielder to the left



GLG 148/5 (17.3) CRR: 8.46

The Giants beat Capitals by 6 wickets few days ago, now they have thrashed them again by 101 runs. Losing by 101 runs is massive in this format.

That's because the host nation UAE isn't a Full Member. Marquee players will get contracts wherever. I seriously doubt if anyone is worried about his efforts not being recorded in official stats. Men at work. Money being earned. All is good.

A silly rule though, especially if you're a young guy, a local player, etc. I get the aspects of avoiding corruption/fixing but why not just have independent consultants vet the league in the first place?

We were just talking about Major League Cricket in the US next year. Surely that too then won't be counted for the stats folk.


What about the Fairbreak Invitational for women? It's hosted in Hong Kong.
