Dubai — Impressive bowling figures by Omair Shaukat (2/12), Salman Farooq (2/18) and Rohit Singh (2/19) was the highlight of Emarati Warriors’ thumping five-wicket win over One Stop Tourism in Group C of the 4th Interface Transworld Ramadan T20 Cricket Tournament at the Fairgrounds of the Dubai Men’s College.

Emarati Warriors, who went down fighting to Globelink West Star Shipping by 26 runs in their opening match, looked a transformed side on Friday night. Skipper Qais Farooq lost the toss but five of his six bowlers were bang on target as the Warriors restricted One Stop to 122.

Qasim Zuhair struck in his first over to remove Adil Mirza for one. It was just the ideal start the Warriors were looking for but Rohan Mustafa and Fahad Ansari settled some early nerves until Salman Farooq and Yodhin Punja removed both batsmen.

It was now the turn of Omair Shaukat to make an impression on the match. The local lad was introduced into the attack and took little time in living up to his captain’s expectations when he broke the backbone of the One Stop side with two wickets, that of Muhammad Qasim and Ayub Inayat
