Chirag Suri and Muhammad Wasim gave the UAE a slow start, resulting in a score of 31 runs for no losses after six overs. Chirag was hit for 12 runs off of 20 balls in the seventh over. A second blow was delivered by Kasif Dawood in the eleventh over (15). Wasim’s dismissal on the final delivery of the 16th over left his team with 91 runs and three wickets in hand. A total of 41 runs were scored off of 47 of his at-bats.
As a result, the United Arab Emirates’ financial fortunes started to plummet. Only 20 runs were scored in the final four overs, and five wickets fell. Twenty overs in, the team has scored 111 runs for eight wickets. The team’s batting average was only 100 because only two players had a hitting percentage of at least that high. Bass de Leide scored three goals, while Fred Klaasen added two for the Netherlands team.
The Netherlands got off to a brisk start, thanks to Max O’Dowd. The team was up by 41 runs in the sixth over when Max was dismissed for 23 runs off 18 balls. After that, the UAE bowlers delivered. The batting lineup was wiped out because of him. As a result of the low score, the Dutch batters took their time. When they lost six wickets for 76 runs, skipper Scott Edwards and Tim Prinzle were left to pick up the pieces. The two put up 27 runs together, helping the team reach over 100. Zahoor Khan bowled out Pringle (5) in the 19th over.
To secure the victory, the Netherlands required only six more runs. Captain Edwards scored two more runs in the fourth ball, bringing his team to five after three balls. He was instrumental in his team’s victory by scoring on the fifth ball. He still hadn’t been defeated after 16 runs. For the United Arab Emirates, Junaid Siddiqui bowled out three batters. The United Arab Emirates and Namibia will play Sri Lanka on October 18.
