Hosts Thailand got off to a good start against Iran with an opening partnership of 209. They then lost Wnachana Uisuk for 90 and Arnab Chaudhuri for 78 within seven balls, which left Shreyanshu Tewari to score 45 whilst no other batsman reached double figures. Iran gave them 58 runs in extras, 52 in wides alone.
No Iranian batsman got a start, and it appears from the scorecard that their number 11 just didn't want to face it, as he is recorded as retiring before he even faced a ball! Iran were bowled out for 88, winning by 195 runs.
Saudi Arabia bounced back from yesterdays defeat to Iran with a thumping win over Myanmar. 139 from Abdul Samad led them to 279/8 from their 40 overs, and Samad then took 4/20, with Mohammad Adil taking 4/22 to bowl Myanmar out for 115, the Saudis winning by 164 runs.
Qatar's match against the Maldives was highlighted by another blazing innings from Tamoor Samjad. After yesterday's 221 against Brunei, he today scored 142 from 91 balls. His average for the tournament currently stands at a huge 181.50. His innings led Qatar to 333/6, and he then showed that he can do more than just bat by taking 4/20 as the Maldives were dismissed for 79, Qatar winning by 254 runs.
Oman looked to be staring defeat in the face when Bhutan bowled them out for 106, but 5/17 from Suneet Russell Fernandes helped bowl Bhutan out for just 56 and Oman won by 50 runs.
There are just two games scheduled for tomorrow, and the tournament will get a break from the exploits of Tamoor Samjad as China take on hosts Thailand and Brunei play Bhutan.
