UAE Women continued their winning streak as they produced yet another dominating performance against the Hong Kong Women to win the third T20I at the Malek Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Earlier, UAE batted first after winning the toss and they lost the early wicket of Theeba Satish for a duck in just the third over.
Esha Ozha found the gaps really well until a run out ended her good knock of 27 off just 25 balls which included four boundaries. In form batter Kavisha Egodage continued her excellent run in the series and she formed a 50-run partnership alongside Chamani Seneviratna for the third wicket to keep the scoreboard ticking.
In the end, UAE ended up with 121 on the board in their 20 overs for the loss of 3 wickets as Egodage remained unbeaten on 61 off just 58 deliveries with seven boundaries. Mariko Hill was the only bowler for the Hong Kong women to be among the wickets column as she finished with 2 for 19 in his four over spell.
Yasmin Daswani’s quickfire knock goes in vain
In reply, Hong Kong did not have the best of starts, as they lost their opener Shanzeen Shahzaed through a run out while Natasha Miles was once again removed for a duck. Hill looked in good touch but an unfortunate run out saw her back in the pavilion for 21 while Kary Chan and Marina Lamplough could not add much to the tally. UAE kept picking up wickets at regular intervals and the Hong Kong batters found it tough to stay at the crease for long.
Yasmin Daswani was the only batter who got going as she remained unbeaten on 34 off just 20 deliveries with three boundaries to her name and played at a strike rate of 170. In the end, Daswani had too much to do on her own and 95 was all they could manage in the run chase as they fell short by 26 runs in the end.
Chamani Seneviratna was the pick of the bowlers again with 2 for 9 in her three over spell, while the likes of Chaya Mughal, Mahika Gaur, Vaishnave Mahesh and Indhuja Nandakumar had all taken one wicket each. The final game is scheduled to be played tomorrow (May 1).
