The Netherlands maintained its unbeaten run in the ICC World Cricket League Championship after posting a six-run win over United Arab Emirates in a thrilling contest at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Friday (January 29). Put in to bat, the Netherlands didn’t fare too well but a series of cameos from their middle order got it to 216 from 49.4 overs on a lively pitch. UAE had two half-centuries in its innings coming from Shaiman Anwar and Mohammad Usman, but its lower middle-order was guilty of slipping up as it was bowled out for 210 with three balls left. With the win, the Netherlands remained on top of the table with ten points from six matches, one point ahead of Hong Kong, which has nine points from the same number of games. The Netherlands, coming into this game with three wins and two no-results under its belt, had a tough time at the start as Manjula Guruge, the UAE left-arm seamer, dismissed its openers – Stephan Myburgh and Michael Swart – within the first seven overs.
