United Arab Emirates fought hard on the third day of its ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Scotland at Sharjah on Saturday.

At stumps, UAE was ahead by just 81 runs with just three wickets in hand. The home side ended the day at 286-7.

Resuming at its overnight score of 74-2, the host batting line-up was steady at first.

It required a 96-run fourth wicket stand between Arshad Ali (71: 237b, 8x4) and Saqib Ali (76: 192b, 10x4) to revive the host effort.

But thereafter except skipper Khurram Khan's patient 39, the lower middle-order did not conttribute much.

For Scotland, Gordon Goudie picked up 3-49 and Majid Haq ended with figures of 2-69.
