Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 16, 2019:    Cheered on by the packed stands, Dubai 2021 rallied from a set down to beat Surprise 3-1 and win a fourth NAS Volleyball Championship title for the franchise.

Winners of the title in 2015 and 2016, and also last year as F3, Dubai 2021 lost a close first set and were trailing 11-15 in the second, but fought back to level the scores at 21-21 and shifted gears from thereon, winning 24-26, 25-22, 25-21, 25-21 at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex on Tuesday night. The winners bagged a cheque of AED600,000, while the runners-up took home AED500,000. 

The two teams received their trophies and medals from His Highness Sheikh Hasher Bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, Director General of Dubai Department of Information and President of Tennis Emirates, in the presence of Sheikha Shamsa bint Hashar Al Maktoum, a member of the Board of UAE Volleyball Association, HE Saeed Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, HE Major General Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri, Director General of Dubai's General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Tournament Director Hassan Al Mazrouei and Ramesh Cidambi, Chief Operating Officer of Dubai Duty Free, who are the Platinum Sponsors of NAS Sports Tournament 2019.

Congratulating both teams on their fantastic performance in the final, Sheikh Hasher said: “The strong level of the two teams was a pleasant surprise for me personally, but a confirmation of this tournament's high repute, quality and competitiveness.

“I am sure this tournament and matches like this will be of great benefit to the Emirati players involved, and will also motivate all the youngsters who were present in the stands to play sports and embrace a physically active lifestyle.”

“This is a fantastic tournament and we are very, very happy to support this event,” said Cidambi. “The crowds have been great and the matches have been amazing. So we are really happy to be here and to be the Platinum Sponsors for the NAS Sports Tournament.

“We are also proud of all the athletes who participate here and the organisers, who put together this wonderful event in the Holy Month of Ramadan, and we are very happy that so many people come here every evening to watch the matches.”

Sampath stars for DHL

In the NAS Cricket T10 Championship, which is taking place at the Wombats Cricket Ground in Jebel Ali, a fine allround performance from Suneth Sampath helped DHL punch their tickets to the quarterfinal from Pool 8 with a 12-run win over White Caps Cricket Club.

Opening the innings for DHL alongside Sajid Khalil (16: 6b, 2x4s, 1x6), Sampath made a sedate 22-ball 34 (2x4s, 2x6s), adding 47 runs in a third wicket partnership with Khurram Sajjad (32: 14b, 3x4s, 2x6s) as DHL posted 117 for 7 on the board.

Sampath then came back to take four wickets from his two overs to help restrict the White Caps to 105 for 9. Taking a wicket with the second ball of his first over, he dismissed three in his second, which was the penultimate over of the innings, to shatter White Caps' hopes of a win.

This was DHL's second win in two matches. They had earlier started their campaign in the tournament with a massive 66 run win over Seamark Royals.
In the other match of the night, Ahsan Abbas blasted a 31-ball 70 (6x4s, 4x6s) and took 2-15 as King Khalid drubbed CPD Knight Riders by 67 runs for a consolation win as Dubai Exiles have already booked their tickets to the quarterfinals from Pool 1 with two wins from two games.
