It was a mere total of 114 runs to get for UAE but Nepalese bowlers fought extremely well to stretch the match till 33rd over. Sandeep Lamichhane and Paras Khadka bowled beautifully alongside the swing of Karan Kc and Sompal Kami but the effort was never enough to defend 113. Aamir Hayat and Imran Haider showed their experience at last with the duo adding unbeaten 43 runs for the 8th wicket partnership. Earlier, it was a poor display of batting from Nepal. Right from the start where Gyanendra Malla and Binod Bhandari failed to score one more time. The middle order did nothing much as Mohammad Naveed and Co. nicely opened the Nepalese batting woes against the short pitch bowling. UAE take the lead of 1-0 in the series and we will join you tomorrow at sharp 11:15 AM for the second ODI, till then TA-TA Bye Bye !
