Notably, they defeated teams like Dubai Capitals and Gulf Giants. They currently occupy the fourth position in the points table with two victories from five matches and four points to their tally at an NRR of -0.361.

The surface at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium has always benefitted the batters and the bowlers have found it extremely difficult to make an impact at this venue. The batting is very friendly here as the batters are easily able to clear the short boundaries by taking the bowlers to the cleaners at regular intervals. Therefore, the captain winning the toss will prefer to bowl first.

The emerging Afghan cricketer finished with figures of 5/38 from his 3.4 overs and was deservingly adjudged the Player of the Match award.
