12:10 AM IST, 10:40 PM Local Time | Well that's all she wrote for today folks! Northern Warriors with a miraculous victory to keep their hopes alive! Join us back tomorrow for the D-Day of the league stages in ADT10 as the tournament enters it's business end! 

Until then, this is Anirudh Modi, signing off along with my co-commentator Deepak Prakash, and our scorer/analyst Ashok Dayma! See you on the next one! 
Angelo Matthews | Northern Warriors Captain: "We were down and out after the first half. Quite a difficult wicket to bat on, the ball was swinging and seaming. Rahul's cameo was fantastic and he got us to 80. The bowlers were top of their game today and they won us the game. 

We kept taking wickets and decided not to settle up because they beat till no. 11. Our fielding was superb today and we never let out, it was a good performance from the team.

If we had won one more game, it would have been a different story, missing out on those crucial moments cost us but it's time to sit back and look at other teams and hope for the best."
Azmatullah Omarzai (Player of the Match): "The plan was simple, the ball was seaming so I tried to keep it simple. The wicket of de Kock was very special for me, he could have chased down this total easily but I managed to take his wicket."
Player of the match: Azmatullah Omarzai
Power hitter of the match: Rahul Chopra

11:56 PM IST, 10:26 PM Local Time | Northern Warriors defend the lowest ever total in ADT10 history! A record-breaking win for the troops of Angelo Matthews! They defeat Delhi Bulls by 13 runs!

Delhi Bulls won the toss and elected to bowl first,
and Fazalhaq Farooqi gave them a dream start as he dismissed Lewis and Cobbs off the first 2 deliveries of the match! After a period of consolidation, Hazratullah Zazai fell and was quickly followed by Angelo Matthews. 

With Northern Warriors reeling at 26/4 after 4.3 overs, Neesham and Chopra steadied the ship and soon, Chopra took off. The southpaw smashed 23 runs off just 14 balls, and with some help from Azmatullah Omarzai's 13 runs off 9 balls, the Warriors were able to establish a score of 79/5 after their 10 overs. 

Fazalhaq Farooqi was the pick of the bowlers for his figures of 2/19 from 2 overs. 

Come the chase, hopes were very low for Northern Warriors. A low target of 80 runs against a batting lineup which is probably the most dangerous in this tournament, but Azmatullah Omarzai had other ideas. The pacer wasted no time and dismissed Jonhston Charles in the first over to take early momentum. 

He struck again in the third over and this time Quinton de Kock was his victim and Northern Warriors did not look back. They kept picking up wickets at alarming pace, and only 3 batters from the Bulls' lineup managed to reach double digits in the innings. 

Rilee Rossouw top scored with a struggling 20 runs off 18 balls while Naveen ul Haq and Usman Khan scored 14 runs each but despite their best efforts they fell short of balls and allowed Northern Warriors to take 2 points and get a big boost in their qualification hopes! 

Delhi Bulls' season continues to unravel and they will want to snap out of this slump as soon as possible!
