World T20 Series 2022
Match 2: UAE vs NED
The United Arab Emirates and the Netherlands will cross swords for the 2nd match of the T20 World Series 2022 on Sunday, October 16. The match is scheduled at the Simonds Stadium in Geelong. Both teams played two warm-up matches against West Indies and Scotland before the commencement of the marquee event. The Netherlands lost against Scotland by 18 runs, failing to chase down a target of 152 runs. The top-order batters did an excellent job but the middle order failed to put an impact on the match. They will hope for a better performance from the batting line-up in future matches of the tournament. Their second match was against the West Indies team which was abandoned due to rain
On the other side, The United Arab Emirates had a piece of parallel luck in the warm-up matches. They were defeated in the first game against the two-time champions West Indies by 17 runs. UAE had a similar tale to that of the Netherlands. The bowling side managed to restrict the explosive West Indies batters to just 152 runs. While retaliating, the UAE batters failed to make a perfect start as well as finish. Apart from Zawar Farid and Waseem Muhammad, no other batsman managed to score a double-digit. This will be the 9th T20I match between the United Arab Emirates and the Netherlands since October 2019. Team UAE have overpowered the Netherlands in four of the last five games.

There is more than a 50% probability of rain will make for a chilly and overcast day. The players will find it to be quite hard because the temperature can go down to 4 degrees.
