Superb UAE win three out of three

UAE 142 (Haider 46, Ali 43) beat Canada 100 by 42 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

UAE had already qualified to the Super Fours before this match but there was no letting up in their final league game, whipping Canada by 42 runs to send them home winless.

After being sent in to bat, UAE got off to a cracking start, thanks to opener Mohammad Iqbal's 10-ball 17. Things were a little less frenetic once Iqbal was dismissed in the fourth over but his opening partner, Arfan Haider, kept Canada on the back foot with his 46.

He and Saqib Ali piloted UAE to 87 for 2 in the 13th over, and Ali took over once Haider was bowled by John Davison. Ali needed only 29 deliveries for his 43 before he became the first victim of a Khurram Chohan double-strike in the 19th over.

Canada's chase of 143 was rocked by the loss of their experienced openers, Davison and Rizwan Cheema, in the first two overs. There was a steadying third-wicket stand of 35 between captain Ashish Bagai and Geoff Barnett but Canada's chase were virtually extinguished when they lost three wickets for one run in the space of 12 balls to slide to 49 for 5.

The procession continued after that as well and, with only Umar Bhatti and Saad bin Zafar reaching double figures, Canada were bowled out in the 16th over.
