UAE reaches 212/5 after another rain-hit day

Rameez Shahzad and Ahmed Raza help visiting side add 14 runs to overnight total as only seven overs of play is possible

UAE reaches 212/5 after another rain-hit day - Cricket News
Only seven overs of play were possible on the second day.
Persistent rain ruined the second day of the ICC Intercontinental Cup match between Scotland and the United Arab Emirates at Cambusdoon New Ground in Ayr on Wednesday (August 10).
In the seven overs of play that were possible on the day, UAE, resuming on 198 for 5, added 14 runs to end on 212 for 5. Rameez Shahzad was not out on 74, while Ahmed Raza was on nine. Shahzad and Raza had put on 23 runs for the sixth wicket before rain stopped play for good on Wednesday.
On Day 1, Shaiman Anwar (78) and Shahzad had associated for a 123-run fifth-wicket stand in 197 balls to lift UAE from a shaky 66 for 4.
Sent in to bat, UAE struggled early on, losing Mohammed Qasim, the debutant, and Saqlain Haider in the ninth over, bowled  by Josh Davey. L Sreekumar was sent back by Alasdair Evans soon after, leaving the side tottering at 33 for 3.
Anwar and Muhammad Usman then consolidated with a 33-run stand, but Usman was sent back by Evans for 12, and Anwar perished caught by Callum MacLeod at the long-off fence off Mark Watt, the debutant left-arm spinner. Anwar's 129-ball knock included nine boundaries.
It has been all about the rain and Shahzad since then.
Scotland is currently fifth in the eight-team table with 23 points from three games, while UAE has lost all its three previous matches and is languishing in last place.
