Match State: Innings Break

UAE have done well, lost their enthusiasm for the task when Lokesh Rahul and Manpreet JUneja were putting on 94 for the second wicket but once the pace and swing of Mohammad Naveed came on, UAE were right back in it and kept chipping away at the Indian U-23s. Nasir Aziz did what he's been doing throughout and fizzing the ball both ways off the track and though 208 will take some getting, if everything - and especially the sublimely in form Shaiman Anwar - comes off for UAE they could do it. Beat Bangladesh U-23 with the ball yesterday to make it to this ACC Emerging Teams Cup semi-final here in Singapore, will have to get past India U-23's varied attack to get to the Final on Sunday. Thanks for being with us up to now, join us again after the lunch interval.
