UAE 143 & 449 (Arshad 185, Saqib 142) beat Bermuda 311 & 142 (Irfan Ahmed 3-35) by 138 runs
Bermuda slumped to another heavy defeat, this time at the hands of UAE who recorded their first win in this season's Intercontinental Cup series. Bermuda are now bottom of the table after four matches, with just six points.
UAE resumed on 409 for 7 but were quickly dispatched by Bermuda's bowlers who dismissed them for 449. This left Bermuda chasing 282 - a difficult, but not impossible target on a pitch (judging by the application UAE showed on the second and third days) was good for batting.
They crumbled to 33 for 5 after Irfan Ahmed picked up three quick wickets and, this time, not even David Hemp could dig them out. Irvine Romaine cracked 32 from 45 and Malachi Jones offered 24 at a run-a-ball, but UAE's bowlers shared around the wickets to dismiss them for a pitiful 143 inside 40 overs.
For both sides, this match was a dead-rubber with just pride to play for. But nevertheless, it was a useful warm-up for UAE who travel to Namibia for the World Cricket League Division Two later this month. Bermuda, on the other hand, have a lot of soul searching to do.
