India fast-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar came up with an escallating bowling performance, as he equalled the world record of most maidens in a T20I match, as he bowled a couple of maiden overs during Match 9 of the ongoing Asia Cup T20 2016 against United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Thursday. Bhuvneshwar bowled his quota of four overs, gave away eight runs and also claimed a couple of wickets, as he shared the record with a long list of other bowlers, along with his Indian counterparts Harbhajan Singh and Jasprit Bumrah, who too dominate the list. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs UAE, Asia Cup T20 2016, Match 9 at Dhaka

India break no sweat as they beat United Arab Emirates (UAE) by nine wickets in Match 9 of the Asia Cup T20 2016 match at Dhaka. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan did not look in much of trouble through their innings as they manage to knock off the 82 runs required to win the match. With this win, India top the Asia Cup points table and go into the final against Bangladesh, without losing a single wicket. Dhawan got a life early in the innings, when he was caught behind. Despite a huge shout from UAE, the umpire did not move. While it was disappointment for UAE, this was perhaps just the break Dhawan needed as he went on to make the best use of it. The highlight of the match was perhaps the catch by Pandya to dismiss Muhammad Kaleem. Pandya ran in quickly from the deep, dove forward and completed a superb catch.
