The last competition of day 2 of the Emirates D20 will be played between ECB Blues and Dubai at the same venue, i.e., Dubai International Cricket Stadium. 

Highlights of Match 6 - Dubai vs ECB Blues 

 

In the sixth match on day two of Emirates D20, ECB Blues cruised to victory against Dubai. ECB Blues proved their decision of fielding first absolutely correct as they bowled some tight line and lengths, not allowing Dubai batsmen to free their hands. Chasing a modest target of 129 runs, ECB Blues achieved the total in 19 overs for the loss of 3 wickets. 

 

 

Asked to bat first, Dubai scored 128 runs in their 20 overs, losing 7 wickets in the process. Both the openers Rudra Mahadev and Punya Mehra returned to the pavilion by the second over itself. Muhammad Usman was the top scorer with 48 runs off 38 balls. Usman, who struck two boundaries and three sixes in his knock, received little support from the late middle order while dragging his team to a total of 128. Kartik Meiyappan picked three wickets in his four overs. Sanchit Sharma, Basil Hameed, and Aryan Lakra grabbed one wicket each.
