UAE vs Netherlands – Team Performance in the Past Matches
Netherlands is going to play against UAE in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022 after losing their only warmup match against Scotland. The Netherlands failed to enter into the 2nd round of the previous edition of the T20 World Cup as well. Losing all three of their group games along with being bowled out for just 44 against Sri Lanka, was real trouble last time. So, the Netherlands is looking forward to changing the scenario this time. They have some good players under their ranks, but when it comes to big shows, they are failing to score wins. But the pace and bounce of the Australian pitches may favour some of their players. Tom Cooper has experience playing in Australian conditions. Scott Edwards may be their designated finisher who can also keep wickets. Max O’Dowd will be the best batter for Netherlands.
The UAE team represents the country’s young talents. UAE’s previous T20 World Cup was in 2014 in Bangladesh. Losing all three matches, the team was eliminated from the group stage itself. UAE had played only one warm-up match against West Indies before the tournament. Due to bad weather. Muhammad Waseem was too good in the opening, striking an unbeaten 69 and pushing West Indies back. Karthik Meiyappan is expected to be their best bowler.
