In reply, Kuwait struggled during their entire innings with the tough bowling of Bhutan. Five batsmen were run out while only two batsmen reached the double figures. They were 36 for five in ten overs and apart from a few chases by Maryam Omar, Kuwait could not make a dash for the purpose.

When Umar took the falling seventh wicket, Kuwait’s hopes of chasing the objective were defeated. From 69 for six, they lost four for five and were eventually bowled out for 74 in the final over.
