Having lost to the Northern Warriors by six wickets in their Super League opener on Tuesday, the Delhi Bulls now take on the Maratha Arabians in their second Super League game of the Abu Dhabi T10 on Thursday.

England's World Cup-winning Captain Eoin Morgan, who has been in prolific form in the tournament, once again rose to the challenge and scored a magnificent 28-ball 56 against the Northern Warriors.

Morgan's knock helped the Bulls make 110/6 in 10 overs on Tuesday.

Chasing 111 for victory, the defending champions Northern Warriors reached home in nine overs losing only four wickets, thanks to a brilliant unbeaten 56 off 25 balls by the explosive West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran.

"Not the result we wanted, but have to give it to the Northern Warriors, they outplayed us," Anis Sajan, Team Mentor of the Delhi Bulls, admitted after the match on Tuesday.

"First Chris Green with three wickets in two overs and then Pooran and Andre Russell along with Lendl Simmons just took the game away."

Now the Bulls face a must-win match against the Maratha Arabians on Thursday. "The equation is very clear now, we need to win the next two games to play the eliminator," Sajan said.
