Over 3: A wicket maiden for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. UAE 1/1
2.4 B Kumar to Patil
A string of nine dots has reaped reward for Bhuvi. Good length and angled in, Patil targets the leg side with a flick. This stopped slightly on him. He lobs it in the air off a leading edge. Bhuvi snaps up the return catch.
Over 2: Another good over for India. Bumrah concedes only 1 run. UAE 1/0
Over 1: Good start by Bhuvneshwar Kumar as he bowls a maiden over. UAE 0/0
India will aim to maintain their all-win record when they meet minnows United Arab Emirates (UAE) in their final group game of the Asia Cup at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Thursday.
India are currently at the top of the pool table with six points after winning all their three matches so far -- against hosts Bangladesh, arch-rivals Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
The men in blue have assured themselves a place in Sunday’s final after the five-wicket win over the Lankans on Tuesday and even an unlikely defeat against the UAE will not hamper them.
India XI: RG Sharma, S Dhawan, V Kohli, S Raina, Y Singh, H Pandya, MS Dhoni, P Negi, H Singh, B Kumar, J Bumrah.
UAE XI: R Mustafa, M Kaleem, Mohammad Shahzad, S Anwar, M Usman, S Patil, A Javed, F Tariq, M Naveed, A Raza, Q Ahmed.
