India vs UAE Asia Cup 2016 - Stats highlights

After crushing UAE apart in Mirpur, India now awaits one last hurdle, against hosts Bangladesh. The game was just a dead rubber and as expected, the outing turned out to be an utterly one-sided encounter. UAE, on batting first, could manage a paltry 81 in the 20 overs and look clueless against the Indian pacers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a fruitful comeback to the Indian team as he resembled his old self of the good old days. He was swinging it both ways and bowled 2 maidens and took the same number of wickets.

Another man on a comeback, Harbhajan Singh too had a good outing, though he did not look fully in the groove. Debutant Pawan Negi got one wicket and showed signs of his abilities for the near future. India’s chase was just supposed to be a formality and that is how things exactly folded.

Rohit Sharma was once again flawless while his opening partner needed time to get going. Shikhar Dhawan might have been slow, but the time he spent in the middle was simply priceless considering the final against Bangladesh and the all important ICC World T20. Yuvraj Singh was promoted at number 3, and he finished it off with a boundary. Singh once again got going from the very first ball, and his current form is a danger sign for the opponents for the World T20.

Below, are the statistical highlights of the game between India and UAE.

59. This was the biggest win for India in terms of balls remaining. India chased down the target with 59 deliveries to spare.

 7*. India have now won 7 consecutive T20I’s away from home. Sri Lanka hold the record with 8 such wins.

 20. Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled 20 dot balls, the most for an Indian in T20I’s.

 4th. Yuvraj Singh became the fourth Indian to play 50 T20I’s.

 82.92%. India scored 82.92% of the runs in boundaries.
