Fujairah Pacific ventures win the match by 38 runs

An impressive show from the bowlers of Fujairah Pacific Ventures as they successfully defend the target of 136 runs really well. They haven't gone full to the batsmen and have executed their bowling plans to perfection. The innings started with a jolt for Emirates Blues as they lost the wicket of Ateeq-Ur-Rehman. Aryan Lakra and Mohammad Boota forged a partnership in the middle as they scored 50 runs together or the wicket, with Lakra falling out soon later.

Mohammad Boota couldn't hit the long ball and batted out at a slow rate throughout his innings as he looked to accelerate and handed an easy catch in the end. Waheed Ahmed and Mohammad Azhar hit a few big shots but couldn't quite take their team home as they ended on 97/3 after 10 overs.

The bowling from the Fujairah Pacific Ventures was top-notch as they managed to defend their total pretty easily. Their stars with the ball in hand today were Luqman Hazrat, who delivered with a crucial spell in the powerplay, giving away only 13 runs in 2 overs, and Zahoor Khan. Khan was introduced in the death and delivered at par excellence as he bowled 2 overs, and gave away only 7 runs in a miserly spell.
Over: 10 | Summary: W 1 0 2 1lb 6 Bowler: Jiju Janardhanan Score: 97/3
9.6 Jiju Janardhanan to Muhammad Azhar, SIX! A consolation shot by Azhar to finish things off. Banged in short and on the middle stump, Azhar holds his ground and hooks that over the backward square leg region for a maximum! 
9.5 Jiju Janardhanan to Waheed Ahmed, low full toss on the pads, Ahmed gets down on one knee and looks to flick that away. Is rapped on the front pad and the batsmen take a single as the ball rolls towards square leg. An appeal for lbw but the ball was clearly missing the leg stump
9.4 Jiju Janardhanan to Waheed Ahmed, full ball outside off, Ahmed toe-ends the drive towards extra cover for a couple of runs. 
9.3 Jiju Janardhanan to Waheed Ahmed, perfect yorker on the leg stump, Ahmed just about manages to get his bat down in time and block that out
9.2 Jiju Janardhanan to Muhammad Azhar, low full toss outside off, Azhar hoicks that towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
9.1 Jiju Janardhanan to Mohammad Boota, OUT! CAUGHT! Full ball on the off stump, Boota looks to heave it away but cannot connect as well as he would have liked to! Ends up chipping it straight into the hands of the fielder at long on!
A cracking spell from Zahoor Khan here. He has bowled exceptionally well and has bowled those really good slower bouncers and yorkers. This has been an impressive bowling show and Emirates Blues need 49 runs in 6 balls
Over: 9 | Summary: 0 0 1 1 0 1 Bowler: Zahoor Khan Score: 87/2
8.6 Zahoor Khan to Mohammad Boota, slower bouncer on the middle stump, Boota waits for it and pulls it along the ground to deep mid-wicket for a single. 
8.5 Zahoor Khan to Mohammad Boota, in the blockhole and on the off stump, Boota digs that out back towards the bowler. No run!
8.4 Zahoor Khan to Waheed Ahmed, slow bouncer outside off, Ahmed waits an eternity for it and all he manages to do is guide it towards point for a single
8.3 Zahoor Khan to Mohammad Boota, full ball on the middle stump, Boota chips that towards deep mid-wicket where the long on fielder charges in but the ball falls agonisingly short of him
8.2 Zahoor Khan to Mohammad Boota, no run, leg cutter bowled short and outside off, Boota misses out on the hook as he is beaten. 
8.1 Zahoor Khan to Mohammad Boota, no run, slower short ball on the body, Boota ducks under it and lets it through to the keeper
An expensive over from Muhammad Ayaz. No sniff for the opposition here as the contest has slipped away from their hands well before time. Ayaz gets hit for a couple of boundaries and gives away 22 runs.
Over: 8 | Summary: 1 6 4 1 4 2nb Bowler: Muhammad Ayaz Score: 80/2
7.6 Muhammad Ayaz to Waheed Ahmed, FOUR! SHOT! Full ball on the middle stump, Ahmed clears his front foot and launches that back over the bowler's head. One bounce and into the fence!
