The ILT20 League is going in full flow in the United Arab Emirates. The 5th day of the season saw another match being won by the chasing team. Let’s look at the match details and see the change in Sportiqo’s market after the completion of the sixth game of the league.
Match 6: Sharjah Warriors vs. MI Emirates
MI Emirates 147 for 4 (Pooran 39, Bravo 3/25 (↑9%)) beat Sharjah Warriors 146 for 7 (Kohler Cadmore 55, Nabi 1/12 (↑5%)) by 6 wickets.
After watching the chasing sides winning both matches on day 4, MI Emirates also decided to bowl first in the solitary game on day 5. But a blazing start from the Warriors’ openers might have left MI Emirates thinking about their decision. Sharjah Warriors went past 30 in the third over but then lost the wicket of Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the same over.
However, his opening partner, Tom-Kohler Cadmore, kept going hard at the bowling and brought up his half-century. The wickets kept falling at the wrong time for the Warriors. Tom-Kohler-Cadmore departed on the first delivery of the 14th over when the team total was 100. Soon, the batting side found themselves in tatters at the score of 119 for 7 in 17 overs. Paul Walter scored a quick 28 in just 18 balls to drag his side to 146 runs in 20 overs.
In response, Will Smeed provided the Emirates with a flying start. His 29 off 19 laid a solid platform for the chase. After his dismissal, Muhammad Waseem continued his golden run of form to keep MIE afloat. His 36-ball 40 made things easier for the MI Emirates.
Nicholas Pooran then made sure to avoid any twists in the game by smashing 39* runs in just 21 balls. Kieron Pollard(↓2%) also scored 19 runs on 14 deliveries as the MI Emirates chased down the total with 17 balls to spare.
Nicholas Pooran was in fine touch during the game. He played a whirlwind knock of 39 runs in just 21 balls at a strike rate of 185.71. His innings included a four and 3 massive sixes. Consequently, Pooran bagged 34.6 SPQs on day 5.
