Bermuda after winning the toss elected to bat but were left clueless as left-arm spinners Shadeep Silva and Ahmed Raza created havoc leaving the hosts in deep trouble as they were bundled out for 56 in 31.3 overs.

In reply, UAE had a dream start With Arshad Ali slamming a brilliant century while Abdul Rehman chipping in with 65. Saqib Ali (34), SP Patil (37) and Amjad Ali (36) also contributed that helped the visitors declare their first innings at 356 for six in 108 overs.

Bermuda had a far more matured approach as they played sensibly against a disciplined UAE attack in their second innings. DL Hemp (84), Chris Foggo (60), Steven Outerbridge (62) and IH Romaine (48) were the significant contributors. But their 332 in 127.3 overs was far more from a competitive target and UAE just took 8.3 overs and lost one wicket to achieve the 33-run target.
