Sharjah Bukhatir XI won this match by 29 runs!

A dominating performance from SBK, their opening bowler Hafeez Rahaman [4-0-25-3] provided the early breakthrough as he sent back Syed Haider for a 0. Adnaan Khan later played an entertaining knock as he belted the SBK opening bowlers Kashif Daud and Hafeez to all parts of the ground.  Adnaan just became a bit too greedy as he looked to collect another boundary and was caught thus ending his cameo of 23 in 9.

Ronak Panoly later just looked to rebuild the innings and took the calculative risks in the powerplay overs. Punya Mehra his partner was struggling to get the bat on the ball as he registered just 3 runs in the 12 balls he faced initially. 

Ronak finally perished on 16 runs in trying to keep up with the run rate. Things just turned from bad to worse for DPS as Punya departed soon after. Shahrukh Sheikh the skipper also failed to step up to the occasion and get his side out of this mess.

Arsalan Javed managed to pick 2 wickets and his partner Usmair Ali who added 1 wicket to his tally while they bowled in the middle overs of the innings. Bilal Cheema was the only one who looked to provide some resistance from the Dubai batsman down the order.

Unfortunately, no pure batsman hung around alongside Bilal and it became quite a tough ask for Bilal the lone man standing for DPS! He finally perished in trying to catch up with the required run rate. Arsalan ended with an outstanding figure of 3.2-0-20-3. Dubai's tail-enders were exposed and they just perished soon and could not even bat through their 20 overs quota. 

The Sharjah Bukhatir XI skipper Fayyaz Ahmed was named the Player of the Match for his fantastic knock of 57 runs.
