UAE vs KUW T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Asia Cup Qualifier
UAE will take on Kuwait in the Round-Robin stage of the 2022 Asia Cup Qualifier. The game will be played at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground, Turf 1, Muscat starting at 19:30 local time on Sunday 21st August.
UAE will back themselves ahead of this match and will see their place in the Asia Cup proper as a natural progression. They have already qualified for the T20 World Cup in Australia in October where they will contest Group A with Sri Lanka, Netherlands and Namibia. The UAE have been playing good cricket this year with V Aravind and Chirag Suri both hitting hundreds on two occasions. 28 year old right hander Muhammed Waseem has also made a century, making 112 against Ireland in an IT20 in February. Bowling wise, off-spinner Basil Hameed enjoys bowling on this pitch and has already taken 33 wickets at 15.81 for UAE this year.
Kuwait come into this game as underdogs mainly due to the fact that they have played far fewer competitive matches than UAE in 2022. That said, they have nothing to lose and come into this match with plenty of winning momentum after beating Bahrain 4-1 in a five-match series earlier this month. They lost the first match on a Superover but then won four in a row and finished off with a huge 102 run victory. Keeper-batter Meet Bhavsar hit 71 runs from 48 balls at the top of the order in the final win over Bahrain and he will be the main source of runs in this tournament. Expect medium pacer Shahrukh Quddus to have success with his variations on this wicket.
