  • WICKET - Jenjira slices through Bonifilia's push forward to knock down off and middle and UAE are 8 for 3 in the seventh

  • Esha James LHB, joins Aysha Naushadkhan RHB in the middle, tiny tykes, full of heart, skill and talent, 'boys on the burning deck' as it were, UAE 24 for 6 after 13 overs DRINKS
  • Sureeporn Laomi at four foot finally has players she can see eye to eye with, though truth be told, Esha and Aysha are even taller than the little leg-spinner
  • UAE 25 for 6 after 14 overs
  • WICKET UAE 29 for 7 in the 17th over, Esha James of the booming off-side strokes, deceived by Areeya P. RFM, bowled round her legs
