The ADIB Staff Cricket Cup Tournament is underway

The ADIB Staff Cricket Cup Tournament got underway at the weekend with a number of great performances to kick off the competition.

The tournament is split over seven pools, with five in Abu Dhabi and two in Dubai.

AED 15,000 will be given to the overall winners of the competition, AED 10,000 to the runners up.

This week saw pools six and seven in action, with three teams laying down an early marker.

In Pool 6, DTS XI and Trail Blazers emerged unbeaten, while Trade Cheetahs accomplished the same feat in Pool 7.

The day started with Counter Strike notching 111/7 7 off their 10 overs, this was comfortably seen off by the DTS XI for the loss of five wickets.

The other morning game saw Leap Chargers cruise to an eight-wicker win over MPM Warriors.

Things heated up in the afternoon with another six matches played.

Counter Strike were again on the wrong end of the result, this time losing out to Trail Blazers by six wickets.

The DTS XI looked to be under pressure when posting 62/2 against MPM Warriors, but a fine bowling display kept MPM to just 61/6 in reply.

Trailblazers then picked up their second win, setting Leap Chargers a massive 148 to win, but they came up short getting 108.

In Pool Seven, ERM team were restricted to just 57/7 by Digital Qalanders, who knocked off the required runs with eight wickets in hand.

Trade Cheetahs clubbed 128/2 off their 10 overs, with the United X1 falling six runs short of 122/4.

The Cheetahs were in action in the final game – equaling the day’s top score of 147, before restricting ERM to just 95.

Mohammed Masood from the undefeated DTS XI said: “It was a nice experience. Good time for team bonding and building team spirit. We won both matches and it was a great team effort.”

Arif from the Trade Cheetahs said:  “We had two matches, both won.  The team performance was excellent with good team work.  The initiative by ADIB is good and provides an opportunity for staff to show teamwork and a positive attitude.”
