UAE will take on Nepal in the third match of the ICC Cricket World Cup League Two 2019-23. Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai will host this contest.

UAE are placed second in the points table. They have won eight of their 15 matches and have 18 points to their name.

UAE comprehensively defeated PNG in their last game to grab two points. Batting first, PNG struggled against UAE, managing to score only 176/8 in their 50 overs.

The UAE batters then stepped up, with Asif Khan remaining unbeaten on 81 to guide his side across the line in the 45th over. They will look to repeat their performance against Nepal in their upcoming clash.

Nepal, on the other hand, have 10 points under their belt with five wins from nine games in the ICC Cricket World Cup League Two 2019-23. They beat PNG in their previous fixture in a closely-fought contest.

After being asked to bowl first, the Nepalese bowlers did a fine job of restricting PNG to 204 in their 50 overs. They had a shaky start to the chase but the lower-order batters stepped up as they chased down the total with four balls to spare.
