Cricket Match Predictions: ICC U19 World Cup 2022 - Canada vs UAE, Match 3 : 15th Jan
The 3rd match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2022 will be played between Canada and UAE.
Canada head to the West Indies to take part in a fifth successive ICC U19 Men’s CWC, and an eighth overall.
The North Americans will be hoping to improve on a best previous result of 11th place, which came in 2010.
They have never made it past the first round and into the quarter-finals, and will be up against it here with the defending champions Bangladesh and England in the group.
Skipper Mihir Patel was part of the team in South Africa, including scoring 90 against fellow Group A outfit UAE in a first-round defeat that was later avenged in the play-offs.
The United Arab Emirates have qualified for the ICC U19 Men’s CWC for the second edition running, and third overall having hosted the event in 2014.
Last time around, the UAE got the better of Canada in the first round, but then fell to the same opponent in the 13th-place play-off, so they will be a familiar rival.
Full international Alishan Sharafu, a batting all-rounder, will captain the side, having been part of the squad two years ago.
He has since gone on to represent the UAE at T20I and ODI level and will bring plenty of experience to the side as one of two returning players, along with 17-year-old wicket-keeper and opener Kai Smith, who was just 15 when he played in this event in South Africa.
