United Arab Emirates kept their unbeaten record on their tour to Canada intact, defeating the hosts by 72 runs in the first Twenty20 in Toronto.
Choosing to bat, UAE piled up 157 for 7, a total built around opener Mohammad Azam's 51-ball 70. Azam and Abdul Shakoor gave UAE a strong start, sharing a stand of 42. However, regular wickets in the latter half of the innings weakened UAE's chances of posting a bigger score. Swapnil Patil and Shaiman Anwar, who had been in good form coming into the match, fell for 11 and 13. UAE had another setback when Azam and Amjad Javed were out in consecutive deliveries to pacer Harvir Baidwan in the 17th over. Azam's 70 included nine fours and one six. Nasir Aziz and Ahmed Raza hit some quick runs towards the end to take the score past 150.
Shaiman Anwar's 103 from 109 balls ensured victory for UAE over Canada by 46 runs in the first of two World Cricket League fixtures at Maple Leaf CC this week.
The two teams will reacquaint on Thursday before moving to Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club for two CIBC International T20 fixtures on Saturday and Sunday.
