Full commentary

UAE were in the game for 75 overs, bowled well to hamper India's ambitions and 208 was gettable if everything went well, Shaiman Anwar was batting beautifully but two overs from Akshar Patel ripped out him and Sandip Patil and Saqib Ali and UAE were left rudderless and runless. India U-23 had been struggling until Man of the Match Akshar Patel came on for his second spell and took 3 for 3 in 3 overs, thanks to some excellent wicket-keeping by Smit Patel. The Patels of U-23 match-winners for India today. Good effort by UAE but its India U-23 who move forward to the Asian Cricket Council Emerging Teams Cup final on Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you back to follow all the action from the Singapore Kallang ground then.

Akalp: "People calling Indian batsmen batted poorly need to look at the scores on this ground till now. India's score today is the second highest total in this tournament on this ground by any team, so we cannot say they batted poorly. Sometimes, conditions dictates the terms."
