The Abu Dhabi T10 League is over for another year after Deccan Gladiators defeated Delhi Bulls but how did Surrey players perform?
Cricket’s shortest format attracts some of the biggest hitters and it was Andre Russell who was the standout man in the final but what impact did our players have there this year?
We currently have a number of players around the world, including Rory Burns and Ollie Pope at The Ashes and five players in the BBL, and you can find out their December fixtures here.
As well as the three players below, Jason Roy and Reece Topley were also expected to feature in the competition but unfortunately had to pull out. Roy is now back in England recovering from an injury sustained during the T20 World Cup while Topley is at the BBL, representing Melbourne Renegades.
Will Jacks – Bangla Tigers
Jacks enjoyed a strong tournament with the bat, scoring 179 runs at an average of 25.57 and with a strike rate of 190. His 57* was one of the highlights of the tournament for many a viewer and across his 12 innings he thrashed 20 fours and 11 sixes. He didn’t get a bowl during the competition.
Bangla Tigers finished fourth in the group stage before losing the Eliminator and finally tying the 3rd Place Play-Off, both with Team Abu Dhabi.
Chris Jordan – Northern Warriors
Jordan played three matches for the Warriors and his impact was restricted to four runs and one wicket. He is now with Sydney Sixers at the BBL. Northern Warriors finished in fifth place, winning only two of their 10 fixtures.
Jamie Overton – Team Abu Dhabi
Overton was the MVP in the previous edition of the tournament after starring with bat and ball. He returned to the same side this time around and while he still had an impact, it wasn’t to the level of that competition.
He hit 92 runs from 48 balls across the tournament, with 33* his star turn, in his usual destructive finisher role and took four wickets from a total of 14.1 overs. Team Abu Dhabi finished third in the group stage, won the Eliminator but lost in the Qualifier between the Eliminator winner and second place.
