It was a productive day in the office for UAE Men’s 1 team who registered a comprehensive 22 runs win over the USA to kick-off the series with positivity. Now, its time for the second match to take the center stage which will be played in Dubai where the previous game was held.
The first game saw UAE Men’s 1 registering a 22 runs victory over their counterparts. Batting first, UAE Men’s 1 banking on wicket-keeper Ghulam Shabber’s scintillating 136 from 133 deliveries posted a formidable 279 on the board. He got ample support from M Usman and M Boota who scored 57 and 44 runs respectively which proved crucial as well.
In reply, the USA got off to a brilliant start scoring 75 runs in the first 12 overs. Opener Xavier Marshall was leading the way with the bat scoring 76 from 98 deliveries. They were going well until a middle-order collapse halted their chase.
Tahir Latif was the pick of the bowlers for UAE as he scalped 3 for 44 from 10 overs, while Zahoor Khan and Qadeer Ahmed got 2 wickets each.
It was seen in the last game that the surface offered relative assistance to both batsmen and bowlers. Once again the pitch is expected to be neutral.
