Steady Fayyaz steers UAE to win

Scorecard summary
Nepal157/10(45 overs)
Oman161/8(47.5 overs)

Oman's captain Sultan Ahmed saw his team through after they were in some trouble against some excellent Nepal bowling in defending just 157. There was a bit of turn in the track all day for the bowlers but it was a wicket that played true with pace and bounce and Nepal's top order played their strokes before settling in and perished. Oman's left-arm spinner Aamir Kaleem is Man of the Match for his 4-36.

Nevertheless Nepal's bowlers did a terrific job after dismissing Zeeshan Maqsood who was threatening to take the game away fro them single-handedly. At one point just 20 runs came off 15 overs for the loss of five Oman wickets and had the fielding been just a little sharper, Oman would have been completely becalmed. In the end had it not been for Sultan Ahmed and Amir Ali, Nepal would in all likelihood have won. A day of some upsets, Malaysia beating Afghanistan too. Thanks for being with us, we're back from Malaysia tomorrow with more from ACC Premier League 2014.
