ICC World Cup 2015: India vs UAE - Player ratings
Amjad Ali – 1/10
Spent 20 minutes in the middle before giving his wicket away. Tried hooking a delivery, but ended up gloving it to Dhoni and compounded UAE’s early woes.
Andri Berenger – 0/10
Got out trying to hook a bouncer that was too quick for him, and that too, in the first ten minutes of his arrival at the crease.
Krishna Chandran – 1/10
Tried his best to revive the UAE innings by digging in, and playing the waiting game. However, the move backfired, as a spirited Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed him bat-pad.
Khurram Khan – 3/10
One of the only two batsmen to have crossed ten runs in the innings, Khurram Khan was well set for a slightly higher score before he became Ashwin’s third victim.
Swapnil Patil – 2/10
Everyone in India would’ve wanted this Mumbai-born cricketer to perform on a big day. But to everyone’s dismay, Patil’s stay at the crease lasted only 20 minutes and got his team only 7 runs.
Shaiman Anwar – 6/10
UAE’s lone shining star in what has been a dismal World Cup campaign. Anwar seemed poised and in control for the better part of his innings, as he scored nearly 40% of his team’s total on his own. Hitting six boundaries in his hour-long stay, the Pakistani-origin cricketer impressed all. His was the last wicket to fall for UAE.
Rohan Mustafa – 2/10
Didn’t contribute much with the bat, but held on to Shikhar Dhawan’s catch to get UAE their only wicket of the match.
Amjad Javed – 1/10
Bowled two overs for run-a-ball and scored a couple of runs. Sums up his contribution for his team.
Mohammad Naveed – 4/10
The only wicket-taker from the UAE team, Naveed was expensive, conceeded eight boundaries off his bowling.
Mohammad Tauqir – 1/10
Didn’t contribute anything with the bat, and was his team’s most expensive bowler.
Manjula Guruge – 5/10
Gave a lesson or two to his team’s batsmen. Hung in there with Anwar and stitched a 31-run last wicket partnership, helping UAE cross the 100-run mark in the process. With the ball in hand, Guruge was extremely tight. An economy of 3.16 and 29 dots are a testimony to his tidy bowling.
