The UAE bowlers bowled well upfront. They got the ball to swing a bit and that troubled the Zimbabwe openers, they however could not provide their team with early wickets. The spinners chipped in with the wickets in the middle overs and their skipper Tauqir was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/51 in his 9 overs. The fielding though was mediocre and maybe that proved to be a deciding factor in the end.

Zimbabwe have won it! They started off slowly but the openers saw through the new ball. They got partnerships in the middle overs but every time they had an upper hand in the game they lost wickets. They were in a spot of bother at 167/5 in the 33rd over, but then Williams and Ervine got together for an 83-run stand in just 62 balls and brought Zimbabwe close to victory. In the end, Williams ensured Zimbabwe got across the line with an unbeaten 76 off 65.
