This is the 9th match of T20 Asia Cup 2016, which was played between India and UAE. India has already taken a place in Finals and this was there last match against UAE. Let’s see how it goes for UAE this time!
In this 9th match of the tournament, UAE won the toss and elected to bat first. Maybe their decision wasn’t so fair for them, but nobody knew about that. Their batting lineup got collapsed by the Indian bowlers so soon that nobody was getting a chance to stay on the crease, but only Shaiman Anwar was the one who stayed and played a good knock of 43 runs, but when his wicket was taken, there was no chance of any other batsman to come and show some outstanding performance. Just Shaiman was the only player in the team who was playing in a great form. It’s been too crucial for UAE so far in this tournament as they didn’t even won a single match, and that’s why they really need huge improvements to play against the top-class teams in the world. UAE only gave the target of 81 to India for chase. Can UAE defend it? Let’s see!
In the 2nd innings, India opened with Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, who were both looking in a good touch and played fantastically together. There wasn’t any pressure on them as it was a low target to chase and they already have reached the Finals. So, no pressure and no trouble. Only UAE could take the wicket of Rohit Sharma, but India has a very strong batting lineup. Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh were both there and took the match to the victory. It really was very fine finish by India and UAE struggled all the way. India won the match by 9 wickets with still 59 balls remaining. It explains everything about their batting-lineup. WOW!
So, India will be playing against Bangladesh in the finals. There is still one game left before the finals; between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and both the teams are out of the tournament already, but still it’s a important match for both the teams.
