NEP vs UAE Team Previews


Nepal scripted a stunning turnaround during the League 2 stage and booked a ticket to Zimbabwe to get a shot at making it to the marquee event. However, the team was unable to maintain its winning momentum and failed to cut. Nepal will now look to focus on the job at hand and give its best here.

Kushal Burtel has been the mainstay of Nepal’s batting and will look to play another good inning here. He will partner with Aasif Sheikh at the top of the order. The middle order consists of some good batsmen like skipper Rohit Paudel and Bhim Sharki, both of whom have got some good starts but have failed to play consistently.

Nepal has a lot of depth in its batting, thanks to all-rounders Kushal Malla, Dipendra Singh, and Aarif Sheikh, and will be banking on them to give the team a strong finish. The biggest letdown for Nepal has been the performance of its star spinner, Sandeep Lamichhane, who has picked up just 3 wickets in 4 matches.

He will look to turn things around as he partners with Lalit Rajbanshi. Gulsan Jha and Karan KC have done a decent job with the pace attack and will once again start with the new ball here.

United Arab Emirates

UAE has endured a terrible run so far and is yet to register a win after playing 4 matches. The team finished at the bottom of the Group B points table, facing heavy defeats in all its matches.

Muhammad Waseem and Vriitya Aravind will be the key players for UAE in this match. They are among the most experienced batsmen on the team and will need to play a big inning here. The performance of Rohan Mustafa, Asif Sheikh, and Aryansh Sharma hasn’t been up to the mark so far, and that has been a big reason for UAE’s poor show.

All-rounders Basil Hameed and Ali Naseer have put up some resistance lower down the order but that hasn’t had any impact on the team’s fortunes. Junaid Siddiqui and Ali Naseer are the leading wicket-takers for UAE with 5 wickets each and will once again lead the pace attack along with Jawadullah and Sanchit Sharma.

The spin department is a bit lacking though as Aayan Khan and Karthik Meiyappan are both out of form.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Takashinga Sports Club in Harare isn’t the easiest to bat on. The average first-inning score here is around 240. The seam bowlers can expect some movement early on and the batsmen will find themselves jabbing at the deliveries. However, the surface foes get a bit easy to bat as the match progresses.

The weather in Harare will remain clear with temperatures between 19-22 degrees Celsius. 


NEP vs UAE Betting Tips

Both the teams haven’t been in the best of forms and have struggled to gain positive results. We will give Nepal a slight edge here as its batting looks stronger when compared to that of the UAE. The seamers for Nepal have bowled well.

Bet on Nepal to win. 


Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Satbet


    Highest opening partnership

    Nepal (1.85)


Kushal Bhurtel and Aasif Sheikh have played well for Nepal and are among the top scorers for the team. On the other hand, UAE had struggled to find a consistent opening pair and we expect their problems to continue.

  1. FairPlay


    Kushal Bhurtel over 21.5 runs



Kushal Bhurtel is averaging 42.50 in this tournament and has scored over 21.5 runs in 3 of his 4 innings here. As he faces a mediocre bowling line-up, we expect him to play another good inning here.

  1. Betway


    Highest individual score

    Under 86.5 (1.85)


The pitch at the Takashinga Sports Club isn’t the easiest to bat on and the batsmen from both sides will struggle to play a long inning here. Out of all the players in both teams, there has been only 1 score of over 86.5 so far. We are therefore recommending an `Under´ bet here.
