United Arab Emirates qualifies for the main round of Asia Cup with a comprehensive victory over Oman. Mohammad Naveed and Qadeer Ahmed rips out the top order and there was no looking back for their bowlers who plucks out regular wickets and not gave anything to their opposition for a comeback. Zeeshan Maqsood hang around for Oman as late as 18th over but no one able to accompany him and also they never looked if they will chase this up after the early disaster. That's all for tonight, thanks for joining. This is Chandan Duorah signing off, cheers!
