The United Arab Emirates would begin their campaign as they take on the Netherlands in the 2nd game of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022. Both sides would look for a win in this game before taking on the tournament's stronger sides. There are young players in both camps looking to deliver their best on the global stage.
The United Arab Emirates will likely find the conditions tough as there will be more pace and bounce on the surface. In the last 12 months, the side has lacked consistency which shall be a concern. The Netherlands can't take it easy as they haven't had a good record against UAE in the last three years. Both sides will have high stakes, making it a contest to watch.
Chundangapoyil Rizwan would look for a good start in the tournament. They recently lost the home series against Bangladesh and haven't done well against bigger sides in the last 12 months. They have done well against the Netherlands, and Rizwan would like his team to draw inspiration from those wins. The conditions in Australia won't suit the side, and they must produce a good show to win here.
Muhammad Waseem and Chirag Suri are key players for the side, and the pair must do well against the new ball. Vriitya Aravind has done well coming into this tournament, and he will look to add runs in the middle order with Basil Hameed and Zawar Farid. Chundangapoyil Rizwan and Aryan Lakra shall look to do well in the finisher's role in this contest.
Karthik Meiyappan and Kashif Daud must bowl good lines with the new ball and take advantage of the conditions at this ground. Basil Hameed is an experienced bowler, and the side would have big expectations from him and Junaid Siddique. Zahoor Khan and Ahmed Raza add to the side's bowling options, and their performance would decide the side's fate.

Scott Edwards would lead the side in this tournament as Pieter Seelaar is out with a back injury. The wickets in Australia would suit them more than UAE, and Edwards shall look to take advantage of the same and start the tournament with a win. They have struggled recently and suffered a 0-2 whitewash against New Zealand at home before this tournament.
Max O'Dowd has done well in the last 12 months, and he'd have to set up a big opening wicket stand with Stephan Myburgh. In the middle order, Colin Ackermann has a lot of experience and will look to add runs with Roelof van der Merwe, Tom Cooper and Scott Edwards. In Logan van Beek and Bas de Leede, they have powerful strikers down the order adding to their confidence.
Their bowlers would need to make good use of the conditions in this game. Fred Klaassen and Ackermann shall look for a good show with the new ball. Logan van Beek and Paul van Meekeren have important roles in the game's middle overs. In Timm van der Gugten and Roelof van der Merwe the side enjoys good variety in the attack.

Geelong would see overcast skies on October 16. The batting conditions are expected to be challenging since rain is expected to the previous day. Bowlers are likely to get a lot of assistance from the surface in the early overs. A score of 160 or more would be a fighting total on this surface.
Simonds Stadium, Geelong, is a small ground, and we have seen batsmen score runs here in the past. Batting is always a pleasure on this surface. Fast bowlers get some assistance from the surface, but spinners have generally struggled on this wicket in the past due to the small size of the ground.
We have witnessed successful run chases at this venue in the past. The wicket is good here and allows batsmen to play their strokes freely. Run chases have been easy since setting up targets on a small ground always poses a challenge. Hence, the side that wins the toss would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first.
The United Arab Emirates would face a tough challenge in the game. The side doesn’t have players for these conditions and has struggled on lively wickets. Their batsmen shall have to show more determination to win this game. The Netherlands would enjoy the conditions and have their top order looking in good shape. We expect a tight contest, but the Netherlands shall start the favorites.
