Australia 119 for 3 (Short 68 *, Hayat 2-26) expired EAU 117 for 6 (Shaiman 41, Naveed 27 *, Coulter-Nile 2-20, Stanlake 2-20 ) by seven windows
A change in format caused a much needed change in the result for Australia, despite a victory The first T20I against the United Arab Emirates was briefly in doubt in Abu Dhabi. The United Arab Emirates hit first and did 117, and then they had Australia 32 by 2 in the sixth. Then he showed his inexperience and Australia took the game, staying with a victory of seven covers with 23 remaining balls.
D & # 39; Arcy Short was the main architect of the chase, ending with 68 not when the winning races were hit by newcomer Ben McDermott, the 23-year-old son of Australia's former fast bowler Craig McDermott. Decent training now prepares Australia for the T20I series of three games against Pakistan starting on October 24 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
The positive aspects for Australia extended beyond Short's contribution. Nathan Coulter-Nile and Billy Stanlake, two fast players who have recently been exposed to injuries, returned to the action and immediately impressed. The two new ball bowlers ended with identical numbers of 4-1-20-2. His initial damage left the United Arab Emirates staggering to 17-by-3 in sixth place, and looking at a giant mismatch.
Rameez Shahzad and Shaiman Anwar rebuilt the innings with a career of 53 races, avoiding a mid-level collapse and preparing Mohammad Navegamos to inject some late momentum. He hit Andrew Tye by two six and four on his 27-ball, allowing the UAE to take 45 of his last four shots. Tye finished as the most expensive Australian bowler with figures of 4-0-39-1.
Australia began vigilantly, losing to captain Aaron Finch in second place against Amir Hayat. Chris Lynn made 20 before he stole the beggar Ghulam Shabber to give Hayat his second gate. Glenn Maxwell, who has spent more than a week in the UAE since he traveled as a replacement during the Test series, scored 18 of 15 balls, falling to Imran Haider when Australia needed 43.
Short put an end to hopes of the UAE, hitting eight legs in his 53-ball hit, while McDermott finished 10, not in his maiden outing in Australian colors.
