Asked to bat first, Sharjah posted an impressive 155 for three in their 10 overs. The star with the bat for Sharjah were opener Renjith Mani (60: 19b, 6x4, 5x6) and man of the match skipper Fayyaz Ahmad (58 not out: 23b, 3x4, 6x6).
The pair of Mani and Ahmad added 83 runs for the second wicket to lay the foundation for Sharjah. Umair Ali (28) was the other major contributor for Sharjah with the bat.
In their chase Ajman Alubond lost wickets at regular intervals to detail the chase. Sapandeep Singh (29) was the highest scorer for Ajman. There were contributions from Abdul Shakoor (20 not out), Zawar Farid (18) and Omer Farooq (18). But that was never enough as the scoring rate never quite matched up to the task at hand. The Sharjah bowlers bowled effectively without being penetrative, yet managed to seal a perfect Thursday for the side.
The tournament now takes a two-day break to celebrate Islamic festival of Eid-Al-Adha. Action will now resume on Sunday.
