The UAE and Hong Kong set up a repeat of the 2000 ACC Trophy final, and Hong Kong gained their place in Division Three of the ICC World Cricket League after yesterday's semi-final action.

It was thought that the Nepal v UAE game would be a close fought affair, but the UAE did to Nepal what they've done to every other team in the tournament and thrashed them by nine wickets. The Hong Kong v Afghanistan game was rain-affected, and Hong Kong triumphed on the D/L method. Both the plate semi-finals were rain-affected, with Bahrain beating Qatar, and hosts Malaysia losing to Singapore.
