Day Two of the ACC Elite Trophy has seen a huge win for Saudi Arabia, whilst Singapore and the Maldives beat Kuwait and Bahrain respectively.

Batting first after winning the toss, Saudi Arabia lost opener Abdul Waheed in the first over, with the score on just three. But that was the only bright spot for Bhutan as the Saudi batsmen ran away with the game.

Ibrarul Haq and Hammad Saeed put on 89 for the second wicket before Haq was run out for 49. Saeed and Shahbaz Rasheed then put on a huge partnership of 230 for the third wicket, with Saeed eventually falling for 181, scored from 121 balls.

Rasheed scored a century of his own, reaching 108 before he was the next man out, putting on 101 with his captain Afzal Saleem in the process. Saleem finished unbeaten on 76, from just 32 balls as his team reached 438-4 from their 50 overs.

Faced with a mammoth target, Bhutan folded for just 138 to lose by 300 runs, Sonam Tobgay scoring 55. Ibrarul Haq was the pick of the Saudi bowlers with 3-7.

At the Indian Association ground, Bahrain chose to bat first against the Maldives. Mohamed Mahfooz took 4-16 as they were bowled out for 130. Mirza Baig top scored with 35. The Maldives completed an 8 wicket win with 10.4 overs to spare, with Abdullah Shahid scoring 57.

Over at the Kallang ground, Singapore were put into bat after Kuwait won the toss. Chaminda Ruwan top scored for them with 52 as they were bowled out for 216 2 balls short of their full quota of 50 overs.
