UAE vs NEP Dream11 Prediction

Nepal tour of the United Arab Emirates 1st ODI | UAE vs Nepal | UAE vs NEP Who Will Win

Nepal’s second assignment ever since getting the ODI status will be against UAE as they go for a desert safari for 3 ODIs and 3 T20I series starting from January 25.

All the matches on this tour both ODIs and T20Is will be played at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai. UAE would be coming into this series without the services of three of their key players. Rohan Mustafa, Ahmed Raza and Rameez Shahzad are the notable absentees from the squad as they are serving bans for breaching  Emirates Cricket Board code of Conduct.

But coach Dougie Brown believes in his team and deems that UAE are “an up-and-coming force in Global Cricket”. He is confident of other players stepping up and perform in the absence of the aforementioned players under a new leader in Muhammad Naveed.

This would be Nepal’s first bilateral series ever since they got the ODI status and they will look to make the most of this opportunity with some quality players in the ranks including the new T20 sensation Sandeep Lamichhane,
