Mahra Polo and Dr. A-Bangash won their respectives matches on the second day of the Dubai Cup, the last tournament of the Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series 2017, at Al Habtoor Polo Resort.

Dr. A-Bangash defeated Wolves by 6 goals to 1, while Mahra won a very tough match against Habtoor Polo by 7 goals to 4.5.

The results mean that Mahra, unbeaten in the tournament, will play the final on Friday against Habtoor Polo. Patron Mohammed Al Habtoor's team has one victory, achieved last Monday against Dr.A-Bangash. Despite Dr. A-Bangash also having one victory (they beat Wolves Polo today), the "who beat who" rule of the tournament gives Habtoor Polo the spot in the final.

Match progressions:

Dr. A-Bangash: 2-0/ 4-1/ 5-1/ 6-1.

Mahra Polo: 1-1.5/ 3-3.5/ 5-3.5/ 7-4.5.

The Dubai Cup, for teams from 6 to 8 goals handicap, will hold its final matches on Friday at Al Habtoor Polo Resort:

4 pm: Wolves Polo vs. Dr. A-Bangash 
5 pm: Dubai Cup final, Habtoor Polo vs Mahra
