Zimbabwe VS United Arab Emirates Score Highlights

Khurram Khan begins the offensive: UAE were given the initial setback with a couple of dismissals. The 43-year-old Khurram Khan teamed up with Krishna Chandran to guide their side to a position of strength, which they succeeded in accomplishing to an extent. The pair added 82 runs for the third wicket, with Khurram scoring 45 of those runs with the help of six powerfully-hit boundaries.(Source:

Shaiman Anwar’s fireworks: After the departure of Khurram and Chandran, it was the turn of Anwar and Swapnil Patil to produce the second 82-run stand of the innings, this time for the fifth wicket and consuming 69 balls during the stand. Anwar ended up top-scoring for his side with a knock of 67 off 50 deliveries, which helped set the foundation for UAE to finish their innings on a high.(Source:

Hamilton Masakadza’s failure: A lot was expected from Zimbabwe’s premier batsman in the match against UAE, especially after scoring a valiant 80 off 74 balls against the South African attack, which included the likes of Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel.  He was dismissed for a poor score of one off the fourth delivery that he faced, getting trapped off the bowling of Nasir Aziz. His dismissal sent shockwaves throughout the Zimbabwean camp, though thankfully for them, other members of the team stood up for them.(Source:

Regis Chakabva’s hit-wicket: Chakabva’s dismissal was perhaps one of the most unfortunate dismissals in the tournament so far. Chakabva was attempting to push the ball towards leg-side on his back-foot, resulting in his left foot sliding into the stumps and disturbing the bails. Chakabva and the UAE exuded emotions that were quite different, with the former holding a long face on his way back to the pavilion. The UAE players, on the other hand, looked amused at the dismissal.(Source:

Sean Williams’s match-winning knock: Williams came to the crease at a time when victory was not necessarily guaranteed to the Zimbabweans, who were looking topsy-turvy at a score of 167 for five while chasing a target of 286. Williams smashed 76 from 65 balls, bolstered by seven boundaries and a six. He shared the vital 83-run sixth-wicket stand with Craig Ervine (42). He eventually brought about the winning runs, hitting two consecutive boundaries to cross the finish line.(Source:
