United Arab Emirates

137/5(20 Overs)

Bangladesh got off to a tentative start and lost Sabbir Rahman early to the spin of Aryan Lakra. Litton Das combined with Mehidy Hasan to take the attack to the United Arab Emirates bowlers and began scoring freely. Aayan Khan once again showed why he is so highly regarded, as he broke the 41-run partnership and claimed the wicket of the dangerous-looking Afif Hossain soon after. Mehidy Hasan departed 4 runs short of his half-century to a poor decision from the umpire and the hosts start

Right then, Bangladesh should be able to get over the finish line by defending this total but will still have to come out looking for early wickets. They will do well to not take this game lightly as the hosts have proved they have decent batting ability. United Arab Emirates need to get off to a good start and will be counting on their top-order to make most of the runs. Will they be able to pull off an unlikely win? Or will the visitors clinch this series with ease? We will find out soon. Do

What outstanding death bowling from the hosts except for the last ball! They have done well to shackle the scoring towards the end. Bangladesh will be quite content with the total of 169 runs on the board but would have loved to have a few more runs with the start they had. They will be pretty confident in defending this target on a pitch that has not been completely helpful to the batters. Most of them got off to good starts but could not make the most of it. The hosts have bowled well toward

TOSS - The coin goes up and lands in favour of United Arab Emirates. They have elected to BOWL first.

United Arab Emirates have shown great character against a Test-playing nation but failed to get over the line in the previous encounter. With the opponents facing a difficult period, this is a perfect opportunity for them to upset their much-fancied opponents and take that confidence into the group stages of the World Cup. They started the game well with both bat and ball but will be looking to finish better as they let go of the initiative on both occasions. They will definitely learn with exp

Bangladesh got off to a tentative start and lost Sabbir Rahman early to the spin of Aryan Lakra. Litton Das combined with Mehidy Hasan to take the attack to the United Arab Emirates bowlers and began scoring freely. Aayan Khan once again showed why he is so highly regarded, as he broke the 41-run partnership and claimed the wicket of the dangerous-looking Afif Hossain soon after. Mehidy Hasan departed 4 runs short of his half-century to a poor decision from the umpire and the hosts start

Right then, Bangladesh should be able to get over the finish line by defending this total but will still have to come out looking for early wickets. They will do well to not take this game lightly as the hosts have proved they have decent batting ability. United Arab Emirates need to get off to a good start and will be counting on their top-order to make most of the runs. Will they be able to pull off an unlikely win? Or will the visitors clinch this series with ease? We will find out soon. Do

What outstanding death bowling from the hosts except for the last ball! They have done well to shackle the scoring towards the end. Bangladesh will be quite content with the total of 169 runs on the board but would have loved to have a few more runs with the start they had. They will be pretty confident in defending this target on a pitch that has not been completely helpful to the batters. Most of them got off to good starts but could not make the most of it. The hosts have bowled well toward
