Preview:

Jersey is slowly showing the potential with which they entered the T20 World Cup Qualifiers as they stand at No.2 in the Group B table. They started with a huge 69-run win over Nigeria but were stumbled to a defeat by 53 runs against Canada. However, they bounced back with a result to remember as they thumped the home team the United Arab Emirates by a 35-run margin.

This win helped them to move ahead of Ireland, Oman and UAE in the table who are considered to be among the sides getting a ticket to Australia. They will now face Hong Kong in their 4th match in which they are expected to gain maximum points. The Hong Kong team lost all three matches they played and are placed ahead of only Nigeria in Group B due to a marginally better NRR.


Weather Condition/Report:

A dry night with high temperature is expected on Wednesday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Canada scored 159/7 in their 20 overs against Nigeria on Monday night. It was only the 3rd instance in 15 T20Is at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium which played in night. The stat shows how tough it has been for the batsmen under the lights at this venue. Scores around 130 are might not be good enough to defend here.
