Match Preview

UAE vs NED: The qualifier games for a spot in the super 12 groups of ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022 are all set to begin on 16th October 2022. The second game will be played between the members of Group A, the United Arab Emirates, and the Netherlands. The fixture will be played at Simonds Stadium.

UAE last faced Bangladesh in a two match T20 series. They did manage to put up a good fight but lost both games. They will, however, be starting this tournament from scratch and will want to make an impression. UAE will face some fierce competition in the group by the likes of Sri Lanka and Namibia.

The Netherlands, on the other hand, has had many games of practice before this tournament. They are the underdogs, and maybe a little inexperienced compared to their peers. However, T20 is a format where we cannot rule anyone out. A good game of cricket is on the cards for sure.
