Amjad Javed’s 56 is the highest individual score for a UAE No. 7 in One-Day Internationals. Fayyaz Ahmed’s unbeaten 37 against Hong Kong in Kuala Lumpur in May 2014 was the previous best.
Nasir Aziz, who batted at No. 8 created a UAE record for the highest score in that position when he made 60. Mohammad Tauqir’s 55 against India in 2004 at Dambulla was the previous highest.
The duo’s 107-run stand is the joint-highest for the seventh wicket in World Cups. Amjad Javed and Shaiman Anwar also put on 107, when UAE faced Ireland earlier in this tournament. Ridley Jacobs and Ramnaresh Sarwan’s 98-run stand against New Zealand in 2003 is the next highest.
Jason Holder returned the best figures by a West Indies captain in World Cups when he took 4 for 27 in 10 overs. Darren Sammy’s 3 for 21 in seven overs against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2011 were the previous best.
As many as six UAE batsmen were bowled, the joint highest for a team in World Cups. There have been three other instances of six batsmen being bowled in an innings – New Zealand, against England in 1975; Canada, against England in 1979; and England, against West Indies in 1979. The record belongs to East Africa when seven of their batsmen were bowled against England in 1975.
