(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Ving beaten hong kong just 24 hours earlier and then been set a target of 159 to register back-to-back victories the national team knocked off the required runs with the minimum of fuss and plenty still to spare.the uae cricket team cruised to a six-wicket win over malaysia. — courtesy iccthe uae registered their second success in as many days in the asian cricket council premier league on monday with a six-wicket triumph over hosts malaysia.having beaten hong kong just 24 hours earlier and then been set a target of 159 to register back-to-back victories the national team knocked off the required runs with the minimum of fuss and plenty still to spare.unbeaten half-centurion shaiman anwar (53no) rounded off the uae win in style by clearing the boundary rope for a maximum to take his side up to 162-4 after only 25.4 overs. they then had nearly half of their allotted overs to take at that point with six batsmen kept in reserve in the hutch.anwar’s 33-ball innings included five fours and three sixes for a strike rate of 160.60 while khurram khan also achieved a run-a-ball knock with his 37 including five fours coming off as many deliveries.opener amjad ali had previously set the momentum and tone of the uae’s reply with nine fours interspersing his 43 (off 49 balls; strike rate: 87.75) as he provided the early impetus after the early loss of mohammad shahzad (8).wicketkeeper-batsman swapnil patil (13) also failed to fire whereas ifran sajid (0no) only faced four balls late on as anwar dominated malaysia’s bowling attack led by hassan ghulam (2-31) and suresh navaratnam (1-41).earlier uae restricted malaysia to a total beneath 160 with almost all of those running in returning good economy figures overall.fayyaz ahmed was the standout contributor with the ball in hand. he took three wickets for 12 runs in his 4.4 overs at a rate of 2.57 and ahmed raza was equally as frugal with his 10 wicketless overs going for 24 runs and thus 2.40. mohammad naveed (2-32) kamran shazad (1-31) and shahzad (2-23) did the damage initially to peg malaysia back to 74-5 inside 15 overs.that opening spell exposed the middle-to-lower order for khurram khan (1-17) and ahmed (3-12) who ably did the rest and polished off the tail. khizar hayat (7) was run out by a nimble combination of raza’s throw and the handy work of patil behind the stumps.suharril fetri (37) and hammadullah khan (32) showed some middle-order resistance after opener anwar arudin had made 37 but their efforts were in vain in the final reckoning. the uae will next face oman on wednesday.
