UAE takes Ireland to task with a close finish

Written by  Published by:Pakistan Views Wednesday, 25 February 2015 19:24

Ireland 279 for 8 (Wilson 80, K O'Brien 50, Javed 3-60) beat UAE 278 for 9 (Anwar 106) by 2 wickets.

Thanks to the first World Cup and second ODI hundred for UAE, 106 off 83 by Shaiman Anwar, and a World Cup-record seventh-wicket partnership between Anwar and Amjad Javed - 107 in 11.5 overs - UAE recovered from 131 for 6 in the 35th over.

They defended with passion and precision to have Ireland down at 97 for 4 and 171 for 5, but they wilted in the face of the onslaught from O'Brien and Wilson, dropping catches, misfielding, some of them walking off with cramps.
