ACC Trophy Elite 2010 -Commentary - Kuwait v Oman

Thanks very much for logging on for today's match. All teams are on a break tomorrow and we return on the 6th for our live commentary on the Malaysia v UAE game.
Man of the Match or rather the Men of the Match went to Oman's Adnan Ilyas for his unbeaten 82 runs off 84 as well as Oman's Deep Trivedi for his 42 runs off 47 and four wickets for 36 runs.
So, final score at the Unity Ground. Oman finish the game off at 249 for 5 off 45.2 overs and win by five wickets.
Oman were in complete control of the game right from the start and their performance today was purely academic. Not wasting their wickets or playing rash strokes, Oman now tighten their grip on that precious second spot in Group A and a possible semi-final spot.
