The Group B game of the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 between UAE and Canada will be hosted by Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
The match starts at 7:30 PM local time (9:00 PM IST) (3:30 PM GMT)
The final league game of the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 features the home side, UAE against Canada in one of the most awaited games on Sunday. Both teams have won three games each and find themselves in the middle of the points table with the only NRR separating the two sides. Although both sides are evenly matched on paper, momentum does come into play. While Canada began with three successive wins, losses against Hong Kong and Oman have derailed them. UAE has experience inconsistency although they come into this game on the back of a big win against Nigeria. Nevertheless, both sides will eye a win to seal a third-place finish in Group B.
Another humid day awaits the two sides with the temperature expected to hover around 30 degrees Celsius during the course of the game. The humidity of 57%, at the start of the game, is on the forecast with minimal chances of rain, according to AccuWeather.
The pitch at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a good surface to bat on compared to the other venues. While the pacers will get some swing upfront, spinners hold the key in the middle overs. With dew also playing a factor, chasing would be preferred upon winning the toss.
Average first innings score: 136 (Five ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 night games)
