Watch Pakistan VS UAE Live streaming online, team news, squads, date, time
Pakistan and United Arab Emirates will face off in the sixth match of Asia Cup 2016 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur in Dhaka on Monday. Pakistan face a must-win match against UAE in the Asia Cup 2016 T20 Monday, after suffering a humiliating loss to India in their tournament opener.
Pakistan will still be healing those painful wounds after that awful defeat against India. The only way to recover from such a defeat is by winning the next one, and the fact that their next Asia Cup T20 match is against the UAE, this should help them get back on their feet.
While there was some good bowling from Pakistan, the batsmen lost the plot, succumbing rather tamely to the pressure exerted by Indian bowlers and some bad running in between the wickets.

India have won their last two T20I series, on the other hand, Pakistan have lost their last two T20I series – against England and New Zealand by 3-0 and 2-1 margins respectively. In the aftermath of those setbacks, Ahmed Shehzad was removed from the Asia Cup and World T20 team.
All the national team’s players were part of the inaugural season of Pakistan Super League, which was played in UAE.
UAE had restricted their last two opponents to totals of 129 and 133. The batsmen might not have that much to do, particularly, if they bat second and if their bowlers bowl like they did against India.
The UAE team, coached by former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed, can do is continue doing what they have done with the ball and hope, somehow, the batsman manage to negotiate the fiery Pakistan bowlers.

Pitch & conditions
The pitch at Mirpur, as seen recently in the ICC U-19 World Cup and Asia Cup qualifiers, will assist fast bowlers early on. Batting is expected to be easier later in the innings. Hence, the teams will be hoping to not lose many wickets up front.
By Weather, we have a day of bright daylight offering a warm, wonderful night in Dhaka.
