See you tomorrow
   
  Man of the Match obviously Suhan Kumar
   
  But the result is this: Malaysia are through to the semi-finals of the 2010 ACC Trophy Elite and they're back tomorrow as will we be
   
  They're like two boxers after a gruelling 15-rounder
   
  They're a tirerd loking team though the win took a lot out of them and even more out of the UAE
   
  Incredible scenes here, Shahrulnizam sprinted off the moment he'd hit it, Hassan chasing him. Malaysia delighted in their tent.

  His off-spin will be missed in the field but UAE have enough bowlers still. And Malaysia has enough batsmen. Suhan Kumar, their captain, to the fore. He walks out to resume his innings after lunch....
   
  UAE's 152 was indebted to Salman Farooq (40 off 63) who battled a pulled hamstring to take his side from 70 for 7 to 152 all out after 41 overs.
   
  The situation at the start of the day: UAE top on run-rate above Afghanistan, both with two wins. Malaysia third, with one win. After UAE's first innings against Malaysia where they made 152, Afghanistan are now top of Group B and cannot be touched. It's now a straight fight between UAE and Malaysia with the wrinkle that Malaysia not only have to win but have to knock off 153 inside 28.2 to finish with 2 wins (like UAE) but ahead of UAE on run-rate.
   
  So, welcome back to what promises to be a gripping hour and a half of play.
 
   
  Join us again at 1.40 PM Kuwait time (1040 hrs GMT) for the conclusion of this match.
   
  Lots of action around us as everybody's eyes, even the Nepal and Kuwait players on their lunch break have been watching this game.
   
  UAE have had two big breakthroughs but they are only defending 152. Malaysia have not only to get 153 but get them in another 140 balls (23.2 overs) after lunch if they are to pip UAE to that second semi-final place behind Afghanistan.

It's going to be incredibly intense
   
  And the game is on a knife-edge
   
  That's LUNCH

  Malaysia's innings is about to start
   
  So the win is 153 in 50 overs at 3.06, the win and the semi-final place is 153 in 28.2 overs at 5.40
   
  All confirmed by the Match Referee Arjuna Amaratunga, the Technical Director RIaz Chaudhry in the Secretariat and Malaysia's Manager Charlie Chelliah.
   
  From 70 for 7, UAE recovered to 116 for 8 and then Salman Farooq found another partner in Shoaib Sarwar. 152 is undoubtedly below par but in a pressurer situation, in a match which Malaysia must win, and score the runs in 28.2 overs if they are to pip UAE to the last semi-final spot. Afghanistan are currently on top of Group B following UAE's batting in this match.
   
  There's been some uneven bounce so far which UAE's bowlers will be looking to exploit
   
  The roller's going on for Malaysia, they're going to try and flatten the gremlins in the wicket
   
  UAE: 152 all out off 42 overs
