Mufti hits a ton as UAE 269 all out in Namibia

The National - News - - SPORT -

Ad­nan Mufti scored his maiden first-class cen­tury as the UAE were bowled out for 269 on Day 1 of their In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Cup match against Namibia in Wind­hoek. The na­tional team, who are level on points with their hosts at the bot­tom of the four-day com­pe­ti­tion, are hop­ing to ex­tend their up­turn in form of re­cent months that has in­cluded a com­pre­hen­sive win over Pa­pua New Guinea in their pre­vi­ous out­ing in first-class cricket. Muft’si ef­fort against the Namib­ians was a vi­tal re­turn, though, given the strug­gles of the rest of the UAE bat­ting line up. Namibia were eight for no loss from the four overs they face be­fore stumps on Day 1.
