UAE just didn't only defeat New Zealand but humiliated them too. Chased 144 runs in 15 overs for the loss of just 3 wickets. Good for World Cricket.— R A T N I S H (@LoyalSachinFan) August 19, 2023

New Zealand might had their weakest team possible, but winning in this fashion, chasing 143 in just 15.4 overs is not a cup of tea. UAE deserves all the credit for their historic win.
