Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (William Porterfield, 1.6 ov), 2-30 (James Shannon, 4.3 ov), 3-36 (Paul Stirling, 5.4 ov), 4-42 (Gary Wilson, 7.3 ov), 5-83 (Kevin O'Brien, 13.3 ov), 6-138 (Trent Johnston, 18.5 ov), 7-140 (John Mooney, 19.1 ov), 8-143 (Max Sorensen, 19.4 ov)
4.3 to JNK Shannon, with the ball not turning much, Shannon thinks he can come in the line of the delivery and play it straight. He is caught out by the arm-ball as he is struck in front of the off stump. The bowlers are making inroads into this impressive batting line-up. 30/2
1.6 to WTS Porterfield, fuller and slower outside the off stump. A touch wider than the ball that Porterfield played a chipped drive off. He wants to play a similar shot but since the line is a bit wider, he only gets an edge to point, which is taken easily. 7/1
5.4 to PR Stirling, he has been making room often to play the shots on the off side. Guruge decides to follow him this time around. Stirling looks to go inside out and misses. The ball just shaves the outside half of the leg stump, enough to dislodge the bails. 36/3
19.1 to JF Mooney, looks to reverse sweep and gets the toe of the bat as it goes to the fielder at cover. Amjad had to dive back to take the catch. 140/7
7.3 to GC Wilson, reverse sweeps again and finds the lone man in the circle on the off side at short fine-leg. That was a poor shot by Wilson. 42/4
18.5 to DT Johnston, looks to go for the lofted shot again. This time, Mustafa spears it in. Johnston can't get any bat on it and is bowled. 138/6
13.3 to KJ O'Brien, looks to sweep and misses. there was no doubt in the umpire's mind as to where it was headed- the stumps. And he was right. 83/5

Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Mohammad Azam, 2.2 ov), 2-26 (Shaiman Anwar, 4.1 ov), 3-26 (Khurram Khan, 4.4 ov), 4-45 (Amjad Javed, 10.1 ov), 5-60 (Swapnil Patil, 11.5 ov), 6-62 (Mohammad Shafiq, 12.3 ov), 7-62 (Asim Khurshid, 12.4 ov), 8-68 (Nasir Aziz, 14.2 ov), 9-85 (Shadeep Silva, 16.6 ov), 10-85 (Rohan Mustafa, 17.4 ov)
2.2 to Mohammad Azam, Azam's tortured stay at the crease comes to an end as he tamely pulls it to mid-on. That's the first wicket down for UAE. 17/1
4.1 to Shaiman Anwar, yorker length delivery on the off stump. Shaiman goes for one slog too many as he is bowled by Sorensen. A deserved wicket. 26/2
4.4 to Khurram Khan, pitches it in line and gets the batsman going back. It straightens a touch and Khurram Khan is hit on the back pad. There must be no doubt in anybody's mind as to where it was headed. UAE in a spot of bother now. 26/3
10.1 to Amjad Javed, short ball outside the off stump. Javed looks to pull and manages to loft it to the fielder at long-on. Shannon runs back a bit and completes an easy catch. 45/4
12.3 to Mohammad Shafiq, comes forward and chips it straight into the hands of O'Brien at midwicket. 62/6
12.4 to Asim Khurshid, fuller and slower outside the off stump. Enough to lure Asim to have a poke at it. That's two in two for Murtagh. 62/7
14.2 to Nasir Aziz, good length ball on the off stump. Aziz swings wildly and misses. That's the third wicket for the man who took 60 wickets in the county season. 68/8
16.6 to EHSN Silva, hits it straight to the fielder at midwicket and that's nine down for UAE. 85/9
11.5 to SP Patil, fuller ball on the off stump. Patil lofts it to mid-off where Dockrell takes an easy catch. 60/5
17.4 to Rohan Mustafa, skips out of the crease in an attempt to loft it and is beaten in flight. Easy stumping for Wilson. 85/10
