Abu Dhabi 85/8 (10 ov)
Ajman Alubond beat Abu Dhabi by 34 runs
Player of the match: Asif Khan
A sorry tale for Abu Dhabi as they got nowhere close to the target in the end, courtesy some brilliant bowling from Ajman, who never let the batsmen to get away or get ahead of them at any point. Abu Dhabi needed to start well but it was a slow one for them, and they could never really pick up from there as no batsmen got going for them to their liking. They lost an early wicket, kept losing wickets, did not get enough runs and never looked like they were in it as nothing went their way and the search for two points still continues for them. 

An all-round bowling performance from Ajman as they went about defending this total, quite convincingly in the end and a comprehensive win for them, first setting a decent score on the board and then making it tough for the opposition to even get close. Two wickets apiece for Sheraz, Nazir and Ameer Hamza in a combined effort to restrict Abu Dhabi. Some really good bowling with the lines and lengths, good catching as well holding on to all the chances and a great show in the field for them. 

They move up the table then and these kind of wins are just exactly what you need to get that momentum going and take confidence into the games ahead. Time for Abu Dhabi to really pull their socks up if they want to get something for themselves up on that points table and they are going to have to rethink and comeback strong for that to happen!
An excellent final over from Sheraz to wrap things up for Ajman then. He will get a couple of wickets as well, deservingly for the way he has bowled tonight and the misery has come to an end for Abu Dhabi to say the least. Brilliant win for Ajman this and it has been a thorough performance from them defending this total for their first victory and it's been a comprehensive one as well!

No choice for the batsmen but to swing their bats at everything and that has given Ameer two wickets in the over.
