The Men in Blue continued their good run of form in the ICC World Cup 2015 as riding on some stupendous bowling performances by their bowlers especially offie R Ashwin, they dismantled minnows UAE for just 102 runs at Perth. Till now, this is lowest total in this World Cup.

After choosing to bat, UAE got off to a worst possible start as they lost both their openers Andri Berenger and Amjad Ali inside the first 5 overs. Umesh Yadav got rid off Berenger whereas Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is playing his first game of the tournament, got the better off Ali. Ashwin then joined the party and took the wickets of Krishna Chandran, Swapnil Patil and Khurram Khan in quick succession to leave UAE reeling at 44/5 in 17 overs. Mohit Sharma kept it tight from one end and Ravindra Jadeja, who came into bowl in the 21st over, grabbed a scalp of his very first ball before Shaiman Anwar, who scored a hundred against Ireland, put on 31 crucial runs with the the number eleven Manjula Guruge to take team’s total past 100 before becoming Yadav’s second victim. Anwar top-scored with 35 and Ashwin was the pick of the Indian bowlers as he finished with impressive figures of 4-25 in his 10 overs. 

Brief Scores: UAE 102 (Anwar 35, Ashwin 4-25, Yadav 2-15, Jadeja 2-23) vs India
