Bangladesh’s bowlers restricted the United Arab Emirates to 148 and later reached the winning target with 61 balls to spare on Saturday.
Ripon Mondol returned Bangladesh’s best figures taking 3-31, with three other bowlers also coming away with dismissals.
Chasing the target, Bangladesh made a commanding start reaching 86 before losing their first wicket.
Hossain had added 37 runs, with fellow opener Mahfijul Islam putting on 45 runs before the players were taken off the field due to rain.
Mahfijul was able to reach his half-century as the teams emerged with a new target of 107, the opener eventually reaching 64 not out, as Prantik Nawrose Nabil joined him in the middle as they sealed the victory and safe passage to the knockout stages.
