Bowlers, Usman help UAE complete series sweep

UAE ( United Arab Emirates ) completed a clean sweep of Papua New Guinea in the 3-match T20 International series, beating the visiting side by five wickets in the final match in Abu Dhabi on Friday (April 14).

After winning the second game, played earlier in the day at the same venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium – UAE contained PNG to a modest 128, and then hunted the target down in 19.1 overs, with Muhammad Usman scoring a half-century to rescue his team from early trouble.

Mahuru Dai’s 24 kept PNG’s innings afloat even as the bowlers kept chipping away, but 128 proved too little in the end, especially after UAE had scored 180 for 3 to win the second T20I.
