United Arab Emirates made a great beginning  to the ICC World Cup 2015 qualifying round by beating Nepal with a margin of 102 runs.

Top order batsman Shaiman Anwar starred for the UAE team by essaying a fine knock of 109 off a mere 96 deliveries to take his team to a challenging total of 297, as reported by Stuff.co.NZ.

The veteran took his time early on, but after going past the half-century mark uped the ante. He took a heavy toll on Nepal bowlers by smashing as many as  eight sixes and eight boundaries during his great knock. Anwar stitched a a 145-run fourth wicket stand with Swapnil Patil, who incidentally  went on to score a crucial knock of 74.

Nepal was never in the game and were bowled out for just 195. Sharad Vesawkar showed some fight by scoring a half-century for them.

Brief scores:

United Arab Emirates 297 for 8 in 50 overs (S Anwar 109, S Patil 74, S Faris 35; B Regmi 3 for 43, J Mukhiya 2 for 58) beat Nepal 195 in 49 overs (S Vesawkar 54, B Bhandari 37, S Gauchan 37*; K Shazad 3 for 46, K Khan 2 for 19) by 102 runs.
