Abu Dhabi T10 League

Banton's onslaught stuns Karnataka Tuskers

England’s newest T20 Phenom, Tom Banton took the cricketing world by storm with his prolific outings in the country’s Vitality Blast earlier this summer. Banton had ended as the tournament’s second-leading run-getter behind Babar Azam and earned a maiden call-up to the national side.

Carrying on his explosive form in the shorter format, Banton has now made his presence felt in the ongoing Abu Dhabi T10 with a terrific innings in the match against Karnataka Tuskers. 

Banton blasted 80 from just 28 deliveries with a strike rate a shade under 300 as he unleashed a breathtaking display of pristine striking.

The incredible knock from the right-hander was his second half-century of the tournament, having already accumulated 53 from a similar number of deliveries on the weekend. 

Banton’s blistering effort overshadowed all other batters in the game as the second-best score in the match was merely 25. He thus helped Qalandars achieve a much-needed win by 32 runs.
