UAE vs NEP: The second of the three ODIs between UAE and Nepal will be played tomorrow at the ICC Academy in Dubai. It is the first bilateral series both the nations after Nepal earned official ODI status last year. The ODI series will be followed by three T20Is scheduled on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
The hosts are without Rohan Mustafa, Ahmed Raza and Rameez Shahzad as all the three are serving an eight-week suspension for breaching the ECB’s code of conduct.
