MLD vs SAU: The second fixture of the day will see the Maldives squaring off against Saudi Arabia who are coming into this affair after facing a 41 runs defeat at the hands of Bahrain. At one stage Saudi was cruising with 32 for the loss of a single wicket in 5 overs but a dramatic collapse in the middle which saw them reduce to 55 for 5 10 overs hindered their chase of 176 runs.
Saudi came into this contest with one of the most promising batting line-ups but a score like 176 to chase proved a bit too much for them. The Maldives also are coming into this encounter after losing their both their games against Kuwait and Bahrain. They are in a desperate need of a win and with some changes in the line-up they could fancy their chances to open their account.
