Ajman's total of 93 proved to be a cakewalk for ECB Blues as the latter chased down the target in 12.5 overs only. With another win under their belt, ECB Blues continue to dominate the tournament and retain the top spot on the table.    Having on the toss, Ajman chose bat first and failed miserably to put a decent score on the board as the entire side got out for 93 runs. The first half of the match saw Asif Khan scoring the most amount of runs for Ajman. Khan played a knock of 31 runs, which he made in 29 balls with the help of 2 fours and a six. As many as seven Ajman batsmen failed to reach double figures. For ECB Blues, it was once again the 18-yr-old Aryan Lakra who stunned the opposition with a spell of 8/4 in his four overs.

    The 3rd match of day three will see Fujairah taking on Abu Dhabi at the same venue. While Fujairah will be coming from a win against Dubai, Abu Dhabi are fresh from a loss against the same side.    Highlights of Match 9 – Fujairah vs Abu Dhabi    It was another comfortable win on day 3 of the Emirates D20. In what was a day full of one-sided affairs, a target of 182 runs proved to be a task too difficult for Abu Dhabi as Fujairah made it three out of three with a win by 48 runs in the 9th game of the tournament.  133 was all that Abu Dhabi batters could manage in response of Fujairah's 182 backed by a stunning century by Waseem Muhammad.    Fujairah put on an amazing batting display in the first innings, scoring 181 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in their 20 overs. Waseem Muhammad became the first centurion of Emirates 2020 as he smashed 101 runs with the help of 9 fours and 3 sixes during his stay at the crease. Muhammed Naeem and captain Ahmed Raza supported the centurion with their knocks of 28 and 31 runs, respectively.

  Abu Dhabi started off poorly in their chase, losing both their openers in the powerplay itself. The chase never looked like reaching the destination as Akif Raja, Luqman Hazrat, and Rohan Mustafa bowled some tight line and lengths and never allowed Abu Dhabi batsmen to free their arms. Skipper Midhun Sudhakar Pattlikkadan was the top scorer for Abu Dhabi. He scored 40 off 31 on the back of two boundaries and as many sixes. With bowling figures of 10/2, Akif Raja was the most successful bowler for Fujairah.
