Dubai:Bangladesh's Mohammad Sharif bowled a dream spell to steer Bangladesh A to an impressive victory over UAE.

The 19-year-old medium pacer, ripped the heart out of the UAE batting line-up snaring figures of 6 for 24 in the first One-dayer at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium to skittle UAE for a measly132 off 40 overs.

Chasing 133 for victory, Bangladesh romped home in style largely on the strength of half-centuries from Nafees Ahmad and from Tushar Imran. Nafees made a solid 55 while Tushar scored an unbeaten 52.

For UAE, opener Rashid Khan was the only batsman to get going making a well-constructed 42.

Bangladesh lead 1-0 in the four-match series.
