Team Abu Dhabi 133/5 (20 ov)
Fujairah Pacific Ventures won by 48 runs.
Player of the match: Waseem Muhammad
Fujairah Pacific Ventures have won this match by 48 runs!

Coming in to chase 182 runs, AD did not have the best of starts as Paresh Katkar departed for a 0. Kai Smith and Aarayan Madani looked to rebuild the innings. FPV looked to attack the AD batting as they added a slip and a flying slip to induce the edge of the batsman.

Kai Smith perished on 11 and FPV grew more aggressive as they kept pressuring Midhun Pattikkadan and Aaryan. Abu Dhabi were struggling on 21 runs at the end of the powerplay and had quite an uphill task in front of them as 162 runs were still needed from there.

The Abu Dhabi innings really slowed down in the middle and to make it worse, Aaryan lost his wicket in a mist of confusion in the middle. Later on, Midhun built a strong 50 run partnership alongside Mazhar Bashir. Unfortunately, Midhun was sent back as he tried to look to go big and perished on 40 runs.

Mazhar who was later accompanied by Pasindu continued to bat on and scored the odd boundaries here and there and kept the AD score moving. AD in the end had a respectable total as they scored 133 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. Mazhar scored a handy knock of 38 runs but lost his wicket in the final over.

Waseem Muhammad was surely the performer of this match as he scored the first hundred in Emirates D20.

19.6 Muhammed Naeem to Pasindu Wanniarachchi, full delivery wide outside off.
