Tom Cooper is adjudged the Man of the Match for his all-round performance. Says that it was an all round effort from the team. Adds that the pitch was outstanding, they managed to get in front of the rate early and the runs kept coming. Mentions that bowling involves a bit of a luck, trying to outhink the batsman.

Earlier today, after winning the toss and electing to bat first, UAE got off to a shaky start losing both their openers quickly. Patil and captain Khan brought them back with a 67-run stand. Cooper however struck back dismissing both of them in an over to peg UAE back. They then lost wickets at regular intervals which cost them the momentum. Malik was the best bowler for Netherlands taking 3-16.

Chasing 152, Netherlands got off to a rollicking start. Their openers added 69 runs which gave them the platform. Myburgh scored his maiden T20I fifty getting them closer to the target. Cooper then played a breezy knock of 34 runs to ensure they won the match. Kamran Shazad bowled well finishing with figures of 2-19 but in the end, the collapse while batting cost UAE the match.
