Alright, game 3 done and dusted, pretty much a one sided affair it turned out to be in the end. 

That brings us to the end of this coverage, stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest news as well as live commentaries of matches from all across the globe. This is me, Pradeep Somashekar, signing off on behalf of Navjeen Rajput!
Ajman won the match by 70 runs!

Just as we expected Ajman bowling proved to be too much for Abu Dhabi up front as they pegged back the chase with couple of wickets earlier on, in under 3 overs Abu Dhabi were 15-2 and were in all sorts of trouble as Sultan and Shareef bowled brilliant spell of bowling keeping it right on the money from the word go as Sultan picked up 2 wickets in his 4 over spell and Abu Dhabi never looked like they were in chase but Midhun, the skipper looked in no mood to go down without fighting, he kept hitting those much needed boundaries but there was no support from the other end as Mazhar couldn't get a move on and he was slow to get off in that innings. 

However, they were able to stitch the partnership and at one point it looked like they had hopes to get close to the target but Midhun seems to out of touch all of a sudden as he was failing to time the ball and perished later. 

But some brilliant spell from Siddiq picking up 2 wickets in the same over meant it's all over Abu Dhabi and they were 6 down for just 96 around the 14th over! The lower order batsman didn't contribute much as some splendid bowling from Ajman ensured they were not allowed to score anything. 

Abu Dhabi lost the plot ever since they lost their captain and the body language showed that they didn't have the fight and they kept losing wickets in regular intervals. Rameez picked up three  wickets at the end and his day just got better and better with that and Abu Dhabi were bowled out inside the 20 overs and they lost the match by 70 runs in the end.
And that's that, Rameez finishes things off for Ajman as Abu Dhabi are bowled out for 111 in the end and lose this encounter by 70 runs in the end.
19.1 Rameez Shahzad to Matiullah Khan, IN THE AIR AND CAUGHT IN THE DEEP!! That's the final nail in the coffin. Tossed up on the stumps, the batsman comes down the track and hits it high in the night sky but does not get the distance, the sweeper on square-leg manages to complete the catch and seals the win!
Brilliant over from Hamad as he kept it tidy and the last over coming up to finish things off for Abu Dhabi and put them out of this misery here!

Abu Dhabi need 71 runs in 6 balls!

Another one bites the dust and now Abu Dhabi are falling like a pack of cards here, Jishnu perishes as he gets a thick outside edge to the short third-man fielder, lobs up in the air.

Matiullah Khan is the new man in, right-hand-bat!
