UAE 140 for 3 (Azam 36, Patil 36) beat Canada 137 for 7 (Rehman 47, Bagai 46, Aziz 3-21) by 7 wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
United Arab Emirates completed a clean sweep of their limited-overs matches on their tour of Canada, beating the hosts by seven wickets in the second Twenty20, in Toronto.
The only period of dominance from Canada in the game came during an 86-run partnership between Raza-ur-Rehman and Ashish Bagai, which came at over eight an over. Both batsmen, though, were dismissed just short of half-centuries, and none of the others could make any contribution of note - combined, the rest managed 42 as Canada got to 137 for 7 in their 20. The UAE bowlers shared the wickets around, with offspinner Nasir Aziz finishing with the best figures - 3 for 21.
In reply, the UAE batsmen all contributed cameos to take their team home comfortably, with eight balls to spare. That meant UAE had won both T20s and both World Cricket League Championship one-dayers, after having drawn the Intercontinental Cup four-day match on this tour.
