Sylhut stadium has a history of producing high scoring games. In the first game of the day Zimbabwe felt that they were 20 runs too light when they were beaten by Ireland on the very last ball of the game. United Arab Emirates would also like to get more 20 runs to put any pressure on the Dutch. May be it is because all four teams are minnows in their own rights and that is why they couldn’t hit the final punch while batting first on this high scoring pitch. Let us check out the important details about the game.
