Rain forced the Sharjah Warriors-Dubai Capitals match to be called off after five overs. The 17th match of the DP World ILT20 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday night ended due to heavy downpour when Dubai Capitals were 17 for 4 in five overs.

Both teams shared one point each.

Sharjah Warriors had won the toss and elected to bowl after a delayed start due to rain. The match started at 7.15pm (UAE time) as a 19 over contest an hour and 15 minutes after the scheduled start.

Sharjah’s medium pacer Naveen-ul-Haq, fresh from this five-wicket haul in the last match against Gulf Giants, bowled a tight first over giving away just one run.

UAE’s Junaid Siddiqui struck in the second over, clean bowling opener Hazratullah Zazai for 1 with the fifth ball and trapping Bhanuka Rajapaksa leg before with the next delivery.

When Naveen also had opener Daniel Lawrence play into the hands of Joe Denly at mid-off, Dubai Capitals were tottering at 8 for 3.
