Sri Lanka and UAE Set to Face Off in ICC World Cup Qualifier


The 2023 ICC World Cup Qualifier is set to get underway on Monday, June 19, with a clash between former champions Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates. The match will be played at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Sri Lanka is the clear favorite in this match, as they are currently ranked ninth in the ICC ODI rankings. The Lankans have a strong batting line-up, led by Pathum Nissanka, Dimuth Karunaratne, and Kusal Mendis. They also have a bowling attack that is capable of taking wickets on any surface, led by Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana.

The UAE is a much lower-ranked team, but they will not be intimidated by Sri Lanka. The Emiratis have some talented players, such as Muhammad Waseem, Vriitya Aravind, and Rohan Mustafa. They will also be playing at home, which could give them an advantage.

This match is a must-win for both teams. Sri Lanka needs to get off to a good start in the Qualifiers if they want to qualify for the 2023 World Cup. The UAE, on the other hand, needs to prove that they are capable of competing against the top teams in the world.

The match is scheduled to start at 12:30 PM IST. It will be telecast live on Star Sports Network in India. It will also be available for live streaming on Disney+ Hotstar and FanCode.
