Somerset 139 for 4 (Gazzard 59*) beat UAE 138 (Khurram Khan 67) by six wickets

Somerset cruised to a six-wicket win over UAE with almost 19 overs to spare in the Pro ARCH Trophy at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

On a day when Somerset's attention was centred on Marcus Trescothick, who pulled out of this tour at the 11th hour, this one-sided match barely registered on the radar.

UAE were always second best, slipping to 32 for 4 before a gutsy 67 from veteran Khurram Khan gave them respectability but nothing remotely close to a winning score. Khan was the last man out.

Carl Gazzard, opening in Trescothick's absence, made an unbeaten 59, including consecutive sixes to finish the match, while James Hildreth chipped in with a breezy 29.
