On winnings the Toss, UAE decided to bat first and scored a total of 215 at the loss of 9 wickets. The team had a slower start but since they did not lose any wickets, it was expected of them to take risks at the end and bring up the run rate. Opener Chirag Suir had a steady start and was the highest run-scorer in the match with 69 runs but with a much slower strike rate of 57.02. The innings’ pace was picked up by Chundangapoyil Rizwan and Vriitya Aravind who scored 55 off 57 and 31 off 35 respectively. From 134 for 3 in 34 overs, the team could only add up 70 runs in the next 15 overs owing to the regular fall of wickets.

Captain Kyle Coetzer played a patient knock scoring 108 off 142 balls. The team looked in trouble in the middle as they lost 3 wickets in the interval of just scoring 24 runs. The power player, Michael Leask came in 27th over and changed things for Scotland as he scored a responsible 47 runs knock off 52 balls. UAE bowlers had made a great impact after 20 overs and they would have changed the result if they took 2 more wickets but Leask overpowered them. For them, Ahmed Raza and Basil Hameed took 2-2 wickets each.
