Right-arm pacer Mudassar Bukhari claimed career-best T20 figures of 4 for 7, as Netherlands routed UAE by 84 runs in Dubai. Bukhari's burst and assistance from Michael Swart and Paul van Meekeren reduced UAE to 7 for 5 within four overs, the lowest five-down score in all T20Is.

Mohammad Usman, the only UAE batsman to move into double figures, then launched a counterattack with an unbeaten 49 off 44 balls, including four fours and three sixes. However, it only offered scant consolation for UAE. Michael Rippon cleaned up the tail as they folded for 73 in 16.4 overs.

The match, though, was set up by forties from Wesley Barresi and Peter Borren. The pair added 77 for the third wicket before they were dismissed in a space of three balls, in the 18th over. Earlier, opener Stephan Myburgh hit 35 off 26 balls to give Netherlands early impetus. They eventually finished with 157 for 5, which proved 84 too many for UAE.
