Waseem guides Fujairah past Abu Dhabi in Wolf 777 Emirates D50
Dubai: Rizwan CP’s all-round show enabled Sharjah return to winning ways in the Wolf 777 News Emirates D50 yesterday.
Sharjah, who suffered a reversal at the hands of the Fujairah on Wednesday, sneaked to a two-wicket win over Dubai at the Emirates Sevens Stadium. After a four-wicket haul with his medium-pace, Rizwan held one end up to score a patient 43 to give Sharjah the much-needed three points in the series.
Electing to bat, Dubai could only manage 179 before being all out in 43.2 overs. Laxman Manjrekar (37), Muhammad Hassan (35 not out) and Abdul Malik (26) were the main contributors to Dubai.
In another match, Waseem Muhammad (68) helps Fujairah record a five-wicket victory over Abu Dhabi on Friday. Chasing a target of 175, the Fujairah opener found an able ally in Basil Hameed, who remained unbeaten on 46 to ensure there were no hiccups towards the home stretch in the chase.
Electing to bat, Abu Dhabi failed to get into the groove and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The inability to forge a long partnership proved costly as they could only manage 173 for nine in 50 overs.
