W
OUT! RUN OUT! Disaster strikes twice for UAE! Shoddy running to say the least. Fullish ball just outside off, Waheed Ahmed plays this one towards the off side and sets off for a run. However, he then denies his partner and D'Silva is sold down the river. The fielder there, Dockrell, picks it up and throws it to the bowler who dislodges the bails in no time. Wicket number 5 down for UAE and they would want to improve on their running between the wickets in the next game.

14.2: D Delany to D D'Silva, OUT! Big mix-up and UAE have lost another wicket! Is there any twist in the tale? 16 needed more off 34 balls. A good length ball around off, D'Silva plays it down towards point where Tector dives full length to his right to stop the racing ball. Seeing Darius initially interested in a run, Shahzad puts his skates on and scoots to the other end. Tector quickly recovers from his dive, gets up to pick the ball and throws it to the bowler. Both batsmen are at the striker's end and Delany easily takes the bails off at his end. Suicidal.

Play and a miss! Fuller in length and wide outside off, Rameez throws his bat but fails to make any connection. Although there seems to be some noise. No one is appealing, so no use.

11.6Rankin to Usman

W
OUT! CAUGHT! Usman departs after a good cameo! Jaffa by Rankin to dismiss him but he has done his work here. Good length ball on the off pole line, Usman looks to defend this one off the back foot. The ball though nips away a fraction and takes the outside edge of Usman's blade. It carries to skipper Wilson behind the stumps who takes it easily. Just a hiccup in the run chase for UAE.

11.5Rankin to D'Silva

11.5: B Rankin to D D'Silva, Good fielding by Tector! D'Silva plays this length ball towards backward point. Tector dives to his right and parries the ball towards cover. The batters take one as the cover fielder picks the ball, turns and has a shy at the non-striker's end.
