Mohammad Aslam (Kuwait Skipper): "No words for this victory as this win is for everyone, for our team, for our support staff, for the entire nation. Each and every player supported and took part in this win and so I said that all the players are match winners. We have met UAE 2 times before and were not able to beat them but this time we came with proper planning and executed each and every plans. 2 more matches ahead and we are looking forward to win those and get into the main tournament."
Chandangapoyil Rizwan (UAE Skipper): "I would like to congratulate Kuwait. If we don't grab the opportunities then we are going to lose the match. We could have been better in the field but we were poor today. We had wickets in hand and we were 10 to 15 runs short. Now it's like we have to win all the matches, but if we don't play up to our potential we are gonna lose the match."
Time for the post-match presentation ceremony!!!
19.5 K Daud to M Shafeeq
4 FOUR and Kuwait has created history here. Full ball outside off by Kashif and Shafeeq lofted that over mid off and the ball goes to the boundary. All the Kuwait dug out is in the middle celebrating this history.
Oh my gosh!!! There is a twist in the tale now, Monib gets Runout!!!
19.4 K Daud to Y Patel
W Oo no, my goodnees as another twist in the tail has happened as Monib is run out. Slower full ball outside off and Patel softly pushed that into the off side and runs for a single but Monib was slow and the short extra cover fielder hits a superb direct hit onto the striker's end. Is this really something at the end.
19.3 K Daud to S Monib
1 Again a slower length ball by Kashif and Monib pulls that easily into the leg side for a single. Scores are level. Just a single and Kuwait will create history.

6 OMG.. What has just happened.. Patel has hit a huge six of the first ball. It was a length ball on middle and leg and Patel just hits that high into air and gets the ball deposited into the deep square leg are for six runs.

18.5 Z Khan to Y Patel
