Abu Dhabi: As the Abu Dhabi T10 progresses under tight bio-bubble limitations, table toppers Deccan Gladiators are gelling well, according to wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Moores.
"It is critical for a team to gel immediately. It's something I believe we've done exceptionally well. Many of the guys have crossed over and played each other at some point in the past. As a result, we are quite familiar with one another "Moores made the remarks following the Gladiators' 19-run victory over Northern Warriors at the Zayed Cricket Stadium on Sunday. Moores stated that the players are together both on and off the field.
"We were also in a tight bubble in the hotel and other places. It makes a great difference just to have a decent group of friends about the hotel and things like that. Because when it comes to games, you are playing not only for the team, but also for your friends. And it appears to be working right now, which is fantastic." Moores led the way with 39 runs in 19 balls. The Gladiators reached 134/5 in 10 overs because to Odean Smith's cameo (32 runs from 11 balls). Wahab Riaz (1 wicket for 13 runs), Smith (1 wicket for 21 runs), and Andre Russell (1 wicket for 23 runs) bowled well in reply, limiting the Warriors to 115/4 from 10 overs. Wahab Riaz was voted the match's best player.
