Qatar batters who had a reasonable game in the win over Bahrain let the side completely down against Oman as they failed to chase the marginal score of 149 runs. Their bowlers have been ruthless for the second consecutive time and picked up all 10 wickets against Oman and that didn’t count at all as they fell short by 19 runs. Muhammad Jabir is on a roll and already picked up 6 wickets in 2 matches in this tournament. Their batting is entirely dependent on Muhammad Tanveer, Saqlain Arshad, and Himanshu Rathod who made decent scores so far.
Kuwait has pushed their limits and got the better rewards early on in the tournament as they convincingly beat Saudi Arabia and Bahrain by 5 wickets and 8 wickets respectively. Meet Bhavsar and Usman Ghani Patel’s unbeaten 125* run-stand for the 2nd wicket steered them home against Bahrain with still 37 balls left in the game. Earlier their bowlers put up a staggering show to keep the opposition for just 123 runs with Shiraz Khan standing out, picking up 3 wickets. A win here will take them to the top of the standings.
