Tom Kohler-Cadmore cracked an unbeaten 68 off 33 deliveries as Deccan Gladiators beat New York Strikers by 22 runs in the opening game of the Abu Dhabi T10. Gladiators bashed 118 from their allotted ten overs, with Kohler-Cadmore smashing four fours and six sixes while keeping one end intact. The next highest score by a Gladiators batter was Andre Russell’s 17.

Chamika Karunaratne grabbed 3 for 25 for Strikers, including back-to-back wickets in the seventh over, but they failed to restrict Gladiators despite inserting them.

Strikers were also in trouble early on in their chase, losing openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Kusal Perera by the start of the third over. Muhammad Waseem and Asif Ali briefly rebuilt with a 33-run stand, but Luke Wood struck in the fifth over and got Waseem for 26 from 13 balls. Strikers kept losing wickets regularly from there on, and were kept to 96, with Zahoor Khan finishing with 2 for 12 off his two overs.
