Lynnsanity in Abu Dhabi!

Chris Lynn was leading the Maratha Arabians against Team Abu Dhabi as regular-captain Yuvraj Singh was out because of a back spasm. Lynn made most of this oppurtunity and led from the front, scoring a unrealistic 91* out of 30 balls. He and Adam Lyth propelled the Arabians to 138. Ben Laughlin was Team Abu Dhabi's best bowler with a single wicket and an economy of 7.50.

Their best batsman in the chase was Englishman Luke Wright with his 40. The Arabians' best performing bowler was Mitchell McClenaghan with his one wicket and 8.50 economy.
