UAE vs ZIM ; United Arab Emirates have been slowly but surely have been treading their way towards being considered as a legitimate side in international cricket. The team has been a bit inconsistent but that comes with a squad who has still not got as much exposure as required. The nation does have some really talented players, and if a team is built around them, it will help them set a precedent for future generations. This tour is the ideal litmus test for the squad, and a chance to prove themselves against a side who has got some clout in cricket.
Similarly, Zimbabwe have been notoriously been famous for having some really good players in their history such as Andy Flower, but never have managed to create an elite side. The team is trying to make a return to the international tournaments, and they will be looking to bring out the best of their players. With two major voids in Brendan Taylor and Hamilton, it is expected to be a tough outing for the home side in this ODI Series.
