Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 - United Arab Emirates v Jersey
The 21st match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between United Arab Emirates and Jersey at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi.
Amid spot-fixing allegations on three of their leading players, including captain Mohammed Naveed, which ultimately led to their suspension, UAE started on an unexpected note with a 7-wicket defeat against Oman. They then came up against Ireland but trumped their opponents by 5 wickets.
The team will now have settled in with new players like Waheed Ahmed and Darius D'Silva coming into the side and performing well. They would be the favourites going into this game.
Jersey did not come into the tournament with a big reputation but certainly caught the eye with a massive 69-run win over Nigeria in their first match. However, they were humbled by Canada in their next game with a 53-run defeat.
Their bowlers were largely ineffective, except skipper Charles Perchard who proved to be the exception, picking up two wickets while conceding just 21 runs from his 4 overs.
The team then could not remain calm under the pressure of the run chase. Despite a 32-ball cracking 56 from Jonty Jenner, they were bundled out for just 123 from 17 overs.
UAE are one of the stronger teams of group B alongside Ireland and Oman and are expected to win this match with ease.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
United Arab Emirates- Ashfaq Ahmed, Mohammad Boota, Rohan Mustafa, Muhammad Usman, Rameez Shahzad, Waheed Ahmed, Darius D'Silva, Sultan Ahmed, Ahmed Raza, Junaid Siddique, Zahoor Khan
Jersey- Nick Ferraby, Harrison Carlyon, Ben Stevens, Jonty Jenner, Nick Greenwood, Benjamin Ward, Dominic Blampied, Anthony Hawkins-Kay, Jake Dunford, Charles Perchard, Elliot Miles
