Pakistan to take on United Arab Emirates in the 25th game of ICC world cup 2015 on 4 March at Napier. The match is scheduled to begin at 14:00 local time, 1:00 GMT and 6:00 AM in Pakistan. Both teams will be playing their fourth match of tournament and looking to win it. Pakistan has won only one game in 2015 world cup so far whereas UAE haven’t won any game.
Pakistan got relief after the first win in world cup against Zimbabwe in previous match. They must be looking for second victory in pool B match of competition today against associates UAE. Though Pakistan beat Zimbabwe in last match but it wasn’t their convincing win as they only managed to score just 235 runs against team like Zimbabwe which is not much experienced or you can say much have sensible knowledge regarding match situation.
Top order of Pakistan side was completely failed in that game and they lost two wickets on just 4 runs score. But the good thing happened for PAK in that game was their captain Misbah-Ul-Haq changed his batting number and came to bat at no. 4 to lead side up the front. Though he played slow inning but it was effective. So Pakistan team will be hoping to see Misbah once again in the role and lead side from the top.
As per reports and news, it is expected that Rahat Ali will not be playing today’s game and spinner Yasir Shah to be part of Pakistan’s playing XI. UAE played good cricket in first two matches of 2015 world cup but couldn’t win the match. In last game against India, they were completely outdated as Indian team is in tremendous form.
United Arab Emirates may think to beat Pakistan as Pakistan team never been in good form always. They are just unpredictable side over the years. Amjad Ali and Khurram Khan have to bat really well to give UAE a chance to put pressure on PAK team. But for them it is not going to be easy as Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Irfan are in good form and played good cricket in previous match.
Let’s see probable playing Xi for UAE vs Pakistan match today.
