    6.1 that was easy! Stirling tossed that up outside off and dropped it short, tempted Amjad to go for the airy cut, catching practice to short third man, the bowling change works 46/2
    4.6 appeal for a run-out and Asif looks in trouble! And he's a couple of yards short. He tucked it to the on side and set off for a run that never existed, Murtagh sprinted forward, picked up and under-armed it to the keeper Wilson, Asif had turned around and was struggling to get back 35/1
    14.3 another soft dismissal! Khurram's struggle ends, he was looking to whack this over the on side, not in control and the top edge swirls to cover, easy take 90/5
    6.4 that's two for the over! Another soft dismissal, Stirling tosses it up from round the wicket, Patil went down the pitch and looked to flick it over midwicket, no elevation at all and an easy catch for Porterfield at short midwicket 46/3
    13.6 biffed straight back to the bowler and good reflexes by O'Brien, this was a length ball and Anwar looked to pull, instead flat-batted it back to the bowler 88/4
    18.6 switches to a length ball and he makes room and looks to pull in front of square, slaps it straight to long-on 115/6

    1.1 he totally lost control of that one, really wide down the leg side, too much for the wicketkeeper as well 15
    12.3 Joyce gifts his wicket away, this was banged in short and he fetched it from outside off and looked to pull in front of square, Khurram back-pedalled and took the catch at midwicket 95/1
    12.6 another wicket gifted away! This was only a fractionally short and he swiveled and pulled it towards deep square leg, the fielder takes it quite close to the rope, O'Brien knew he was in trouble the moment it left the bat 96/2
    13.6 timber! UAE are hitting back but is it too late? Full credit to Javed here, this was a lovely inswinging yorker that would have made his coach Aqib Javed proud, Poynter was beaten for movement, played all around it and failed to get his bat down, the ball brushes his pad first, the leg stump lands a couple of yards back 101/3

Match Notes

  • Ireland show who are 'top of the tree'

    There has been this sense of quiet inevitability to Ireland's World T20 campaign so far. From the start, they have maintained that they are here to win three games and get into the Super 10

  • Khurram hopes for UAE investment

    Two tame defeats to Netherlands and Ireland revealed the gap that exists between the amateurs of UAE and the leading lights of the Associate world

  • Win takes Ireland closer to main draw

    Ireland moved closer to qualifying for the main draw of the World T20, beating United Arab Emirates by 21 runs (D/L method)

  • Porterfield lines up 'big hurdle' to cross

    Ireland may have passed their biggest test in the first round in the form of Full Member Zimbabwe, but captain William Porterfield feels another "big hurdle" lies in wait when they face their next opponents, UAE.
