T&Cs apply, 18+
The United Arab Emirates have done what few people would have expected them to do at the end of the second game in the four-match series against the Netherlands. Playing in conditions where they have struggled in the past the team has played some spirited cricket to win the two games and take an unassailable lead in the series. It has been a bad run for the home side as they have been defeated comprehensively in both the games.
The Netherlands hasn’t quite looked the side their fans would have expected them to in home conditions. They have failed to throw a serious challenge at their opponents in both the games so far in the series. It is a must-win game for the hosts if they are to level the series and it would be interesting to see how they would turn up for the next game.

Pieter Seelaar would be disappointed with the performance his side has put up so far in the series. In both the games they have failed to put up a good show collectively. Their batting failure at the top resulted in a loss in the last game. Seelaar would want his team to rise up to the challenge ahead of the next game.
Stephan Myburgh’s form at the top is causing problems for the side. Ben Cooper did well in the last game and found support from the skipper. But the rest of the batting line-up hasn’t delivered yet this series. Max O’Dowd, Scott Edwards, and Sikander Zulfiqar shall have to bat well in the next game for the side to put up a big score.
It was a second consecutive failure for the bowling attack as the likes of Vivian Kingma, Brandon Glover and Seelar proved to be ineffective. Sebastiaan Braat and Philippe Boissevian did well with the ball and would like to continue with the same rhythm in the next game.

Muhammad Naveed’s side would be in high spirits having taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four match series. His side bowled well in the last game and when it came to their batting they were clinical in their approach. With a series win in line in the next game, he would like to go for the kill.
Rameez Shahzad and Muhammad Usman batted well in the middle order to ensure an easy win for the side in the last game. Ashfaq Ahmed also made an important contribution in the game with the bat. Having Ghulam Shabber and Mohammad Boota in the side adds to their strength going into this game.
Mohammad Naveed and Zahoor Khan bowled economically in the last game and prevented the Netherlands from freeing their arms. Rohan Mustafa also did well in picking up three wickets during the game. Ahmed Raza and Sultan Ahmed complete a good bowling attack for the side.

It would be partly cloudy at The Hague on August 06 and the batting conditions are expected to tougher than what we have seen in the last two games. The pitch will assist the fast bowlers a bit in the initial overs and batsmen will have to preserve their wickets.
Sportpark Westvliet, The Hague is a good venue for T20 cricket balancing between the batsmen and the bowlers. The bowlers get their initial returns from the wicket while the small size of the ground makes it good for hitting on the up and scoring boundaries.
It has been a while since a T20I game has been played at this venue but in six previous games the side bowling first has gone on to win four of them. There is early assistance for the fast bowlers and the side winning the toss is most likely to choose to bowl first on this surface.
The United Arab Emirates has defied many odds to win the first two games of the series. They were expected to struggle in these conditions have not done well in the past. But they have come out all guns blazing and won the two games. The Netherlands have been found to have been napping in both the games and their young players haven’t quite delivered so far. Given what we have seen so far in the series UAE would definitely start with momentum on their side and would be favorites to win this one.
