Ahmed conceded 51 runs for his six-wicket haul as NMC, chasing a modest 178 for victory, were bowled out for 153 in the 25th over to suffer their second successive loss in this longest running tournament in the UAE.

Ibsons CC, batting first, built their innings around Baber Malik (40), Fayyaz Ahmed (34) and Mohammed Tauqir (28). Saqib Ali took three wickets for 22 runs while Aqeel Ahmed, Shadeep Silva and Manjula Gurugue picked up two each.

NMC, in reply, failed to execute their batting plan and fell well short of the victory target despite a solid half century by Indika Sampath, who made 55.
