Nepal will cross swords with UAE in the second match of the Oman Quadrangular T20I Series at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground (Ministry Turf 1).
Nepal beat Oman in the first game of the series in a closely-fought contest. Bowling first, the Nepal bowlers did a fine job of restricting Oman to 135, picking up six wickets in the process.
They had a shaky start to the chase but Dipendra Singh Airee remained unbeaten on 73 to guide his side across the line. Nepal held their nerves in the end to chase down the total with three balls to spare. They will look to carry the winning momentum into their match against UAE.
UAE, on the other hand, were scheduled to meet Ireland in their first game but it was rescheduled. The game will be played on February 13 and UAE will now play their first game of the competition against Nepal.
UAE recently faced Oman in an ODI series which was part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League Two 2019-23. They will be looking to get their campaign underway with a win and have to be at their best to challenge the Nepalese side.
