So, that is it from me, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Pratyush Rohra. Stay tuned to the match between Sharjah and Emirates Blues which will start in ten minutes' time.
Fayyaz Ahmed has been named as the 'Man of the Match' for his cracking four-wicket haul on a pacer-friendly track.
Hamdan Tahir, the 17-year-old keeper has fumbled under pressure here! Waqas missed the slower delivery from Jiju and it should have been a routine collection but Hamdan missed it and the Abu Dhabi batsmen went through for a bye. The Abu Dhabi camp is elated as this is only their first victory of this season and only the second win of their Emirates T10 history.

Defending 97 on a spicy track, Fujairah bowled well to concede 24 runs off the first four overs. Thereafter, the match turned as Kamran started to be a lot more aggressive and Abu Dhabi managed to eke out 44 runs off the next three overs. Given Abu Dhabi only required 30 off three overs, it seemed to be an easy victory but Waseem Muhammad built a lot of pressure by conceding just four runs off the eighth over. 

Abu Dhabi seemed to be choking but Waqas Gohar and Ali Abid held their nerve to get 15 runs off the penultimate over. Ali managed a six off the first ball of the last over but he played two dot deliveries before getting out of the fourth ball. The rub of the green was on Abu Dhabi's side as Waqas edged the ball for a boundary before they stole a bye to register this special victory.
Over: 10 | Summary: 6 0 0 2W 4 1b Bowler: Jiju Janardhanan Score: 0/0
9.6 Jiju Janardhanan to Waqas Gohar, ABU DHABI HAS CAUSED THE MASSIVE UPSET HERE! Good length slower delivery outside off-stump, beats Waqas, who was ready to take off for the single anyway but a fumble by the wicket-keeper means they complete the single easily. What a game we've had here! Witnessed a classic Sharjah game, this one will go down in the history of the Emirates D10!
Edged and it is a boundary!! The luck is favouring Abu Dhabi here. They only require one run off the last ball for a victory.
9.5 Jiju Janardhanan to Waqas Gohar, EDGED! FOUR! SCORES ARE LEVEL! Good length delivery outside off-stump, Waqas swings for the fences and gets a thick outside edge that flies to the third man fence!
Oh!! Drama drama!! Carbon copy of the previous two deliveries as Ali missed the ball completely but he tried to steal a single. The keeper lobbed the ball to Jiju who threw the ball onto the stumps at the non-striker's end. The Abu Dhabi batsmen try to steal an extra run after the ball deflected off the stumps and they do it. Oh! However, the replays show that he was short of the crease. So, no run at all there and Ali has to walk back.
9.4 Jiju Janardhanan to Ali Abid, Runout, is it? Full delivery outside off-stump, Ali swings and misses, the batsmen take off for a single but the bowler hits the stumps at the non-strikers end, and Ali Abid is a goner!  5 needed in 2!
Swing and missed twice!! Two dot balls and Abu Dhabi require five runs off three balls now!! 
9.3 Jiju Janardhanan to Ali Abid, back of a length delivery outside off-stump, angling in, Ali goes for a wild hoick again but fails to get bat on ball. Pressure is telling!
9.2 Jiju Janardhanan to Ali Abid, back of a length delivery outside off-stump, Ali has a swing and it but misses!
What a sensational stroke from Ali Abid. Overpitched delivery and Ali smashed it over deep covers! 
9.1 Jiju Janardhanan to Ali Abid, SIX! WHAT A SHOT! Fullish delivery outside off-stump, Ali clears his front foot and carves it over point and the timing is immaculate, takes it over the fence all the way for a  maximum!
Jiju Janardhanan will bowl the final over. 
Over: 9 | Summary: 2 1lb 1 2 2 4 Bowler: Muhammad Ayaz Score: 84/2
8.6 Muhammad Ayaz to Waqas Gohar, good length delivery outside off-stump, driven to sweeper cover, for a single. Have they bowled an extra delivery here?
Boundary off the last delivery!! This has completely changed the complexion of the match!! Ayaz did extremely well until that but Abu Dhabi require 14 runs off the last over now.
Brilliant work from the fielders in the deep as they joined to prevent the boundary. Meanwhile, it was a very tough return catch for Muhammad Ayaz but he couldn't get a hand on it.
8.6 Muhammad Ayaz to Waqas Gohar, FOUR! SHOT! Back of a length delivery outside off-stump, Waqas uses the width on offer and slashes it over backward point to find the fence!
