The second of the four T20Is on the UAE tour of Netherlands will be played at the VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen in Netherlands.


The UAE batsmen exceeded expectations in the first match and were quite aggressive. Netherlands should take a leaf out of their book as, despite having some solid batsmen in their ranks, they struggled to move along with the pace of the match.

Full Match Scorecard

Opener Ashfaq Ahmed was the top-scorer for UAE in the first match, scoring 54 from just 35 deliveries. Muhammad Usman in the middle order also struck a half-century and along with Darius D'Silva, took the team to a 181-run total, which was quite impressive.

As expected, skipper Pieter Seelaar was the best bowler for Netherlands.

In reply, Max ODowd, Ben Cooper and Scott Edwards were the chief contributors for Scotland and batted at strike rates of around 150. The culprits were Stephan Myburgh and Antonius Staal who soaked up a lot of deliveries, which led to the downfall of the home team.

Rohan Mustafa is the best bowler UAE have and has got good support from Zahoor Khan in recent matches.

UAE have an advantage in this format of the game as they have more experienced players who have a taste of playing in leagues across the world. This is what gives them an upper hand in the upcoming three games.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Netherlands- Stephan Myburgh, Max ODowd, Sikander Zulfiqar, Saqib Zulfiqar, Ben Cooper, Scott Edwards, Pieter Seelaar, Vivian Kingma, Hidde Overdijk, Brandon Glover, Antonius Staal

United Arab Emirates- Rohan Mustafa, Ashfaq Ahmed, Ghulam Shabber, Sultan Ahmed, Rameez Shahzad, Muhammad Usman, Mohammad Boota, Mohammad Naveed, Ahmed Raza, Darius D'Silva, Zahoor Khan
