Therefore, this match is a dead rubber between these two sides with the chances of the UAE winning it very less.

For the Windies, it was Brandon King and Johnson Charles who scored 64 and 63 runs respectively and Odean Smith also contributed a crucial 37 runs towards the end.

On the other hand, UAE batters could not do much as Ali Naseer and Basil Hameed scored 57 and 49 runs respectively.

Vriitya Aravind made a small contribution of 36 but it was not enough to take them over the finish line.

Thus, we will witness yet another high-scoring encounter between these two sides tomorrow.

Pitch Report

The wicket at Sharjah is a typically balanced one for both batters and bowlers. Furthermore, batters will find it relatively easy to hit boundaries at the start of the game. But, spinners will also dominate the game in the second half of the innings and batters will have a tough time. Additionally, pacers will also get some swing when the ball gets old. Therefore, the team batting first will have to make their powerplay count. Furthermore, the average first innings score at this venue is 223.
