Medium-pacer Chaminda Ruwan took five wickets as Singapore completed a 35-run win over Qatar at the Bayuemas Oval. A team effort from the batsmen, with five of them making more than 26, lifted Singapore to 227. Qatar looked in control as half-centuries from captain Omer Taj and Tamoor Sajjad left them needing 98 off the last 20 overs, with seven wickets in hand. Ruwan, though, ripped through the middle order - four wickets falling in the space of six runs - to consign Qatar to defeat.
