Anis Sajan, Mentor of Indian Team plots UAE teams down fall in clash of the titans' India beat UAE by 13 runs in one of the most thrilling game played at Insportz Yesterday. This match was billed as the clash of the titans by Anis Sajan as he had played all his Indoor Cricket in UAE for Twenty Years and as destiny would make him the mentor of Indian Team, it was a big challenge for Anis to beat the the same boys with whom he had played Cricket for the last two decades. After India were beaten by Australia it was very important for Anis to lift the moral of the team before the game against UAE the same evening. Immediately after the game he took all the boys to his house and asked them to warm down in the swimming pool instead at the venue after the Australian game. He then took the phones away from all the boys and asked them to totally switch off from Cricket so that the mind and body gets good rest and made them do a meditation session so that they could totally forget about the last game.

At around 6.15pm, he made a full presentation of the UAE teams players and showed it to the players on a projector skins, showing the weakness and strength of each player. He also showed a motivational video of the outdoor team to the boys. ' Sajan said, It was important the boys were relaxed before the game and also got a good idea abt the UAE boys before they played this all important game. ' UAE on the same day had been England and were high on confidence. Once the Indian players reached the Insportz Stadium,  they found almost 300 supporters in Blue Indian jersey which Sajan had arranged to boost the confidence of the team. Infact Insportz was packed to its full capacity and it created an electrifying atmosphere. UAE who were asked to field restricted India to just 49 runs in their 16 overs which was a below par total. And UAE were off to a flying start scoring 24 in their first 4 overs just requiring another 25 runs in 12 overs to win the game. It is then the game took a total twist that Indian players fought back and brought the score of UAE team to 31 in 15 overs and UAE needed 18 in the last over.

There was another twist in the tale when the match umpire doped India for slow over rate and were penalized 10 runs which means UAE required just 8 runs to win in 6 balls. UAE scored 4 in the first 3 balls but the Indian players kept their nerves and then a wicket fell which meant UAE required 12 in two balls but they lost another wicket and lost the game by 13 runs. When a reporter asked him where would he rate this win, Sajan replied 'I hv played many a close games at Insportz  and won most of them but this will definitely be right on top' . UAE were favorites because of the home conditions and the experience of the boys but Anis Sajan and his team had other ideas.
