Scorecard

Bermuda put up a far better effort in their second innings but still went down to a nine-wicket defeat against UAE with a day to spare as the visitors jumped to the top of the Intercontinental Shield table. David Hemp, the former Glamorgan and Warwickshire batsman, top-scored with 84 to lift his team to 332 but there was never going to be anyway back for the home side after their earlier demise for 56.

Chris Foggo (60) and Steve Outerbridge (62) resumed their overnight stand at 107 for 1 and both reached their half centuries in a partnership that spanned 44 overs. However, neither could covert into the big score Bermuda really needed; first Foggo fell to Qasim Zubair then Outerbridge departed after 155 balls.

However, at least Bermuda didn't fold in a heap. Hemp added 98 for the fourth wicket with Irving Romaine (48) to eat into UAE's lead. Romaine twice cleared the boundary during his innings, but fell short of his fifty when he was stumped off Ahmed Raza, the left-arm spinner, who toiled through 35.3 overs for impressive figures of 4 for 55.

Once the stand had been broken the innings fell away against Raza and Khurram Khan. When Hemp was seventh out it was clear UAE wouldn't face much of a run chase and in the end they needed 33. Despite Abdul Rehman's run out they cruised home in under nine overs and Bermuda remain pointless in the competition.
