Pakistan have won their 1⃣st match in the Asia Cup after overcoming a spirited UAE side👌 who smelled victory at one point in the game. UAE did well to post 129/6 on the board after Pakistani seamers had them in trouble at 41-4👍. Shaiman Anwar(46) and captain Amjad Javed's(27) knocks helped them post an ultimately respectable total👏. Pakistan were shocked😲 early in their chase by Amjad Javed, who sent back Hafeez, Sharjeel and Manzoor to leave Pakistan reeling at 17-3😳. Shoaib Malik(63) and Kamran Akmal(50*) then took charge of the innings with 114 run stand. Despite the required run rate climbing😨 to 9 an over, the duo waited for the inexperience of the UAE bowlers to show before launching their assault💥. In the end, Pakistan won with 8 balls to spare but will be relieved to have come through unscathed from the match😌.
