UAE 47/3 in 11 overs
Captain Shafali comes into the attack. A brilliant over by her to keep the batters in check as she also gave only two runs from her over. The UAE team needs to show some intent here as the overs are passing by very quickly and it has been quite some time since when UAE scored a boundary.

UAE 30/1 in 2 overs
