UAE needed four runs off the last ball. Sibanda bowled the best ball and the ball went to fine leg taking the inner edge of Mahesh’s bat and the fielder standing there left the ball while fielding very poorly. The ball went through his legs and UAE got four runs. In this way Zimbabwe lost the won match.
