After an easy win in the first ODI on Sunday, West Indies will look to wrap their three-match series against UAE on Tuesday. The second game of the series will be played at the same venue of Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday from 6pm IST onwards.

It was a win in a canter and on expected terms, as West Indies took a deserving 1-0 lead in the series. There aren’t many areas where they looked out of depth, which should augur well for them. With Shai Hope coming down the order, backing him to be the top-scorer may be risky. Back the Windies to score at least 33 runs for the opening wicket.

  • UAE have lost their 16 matches to the current top-10 teams (ODIs)
  • West Indies have won 22 of their 23 matches against Associate Nations (ODIs)
  • Shai Hope has scored 7 of his 14 centuries in Asia (ODIs)
  • UAE have conceded at least 33 runs as the opening partnership in 3 of their last 4 matches (ODIs)
  • West Indies openers have scored at least 33 in their last 4 matches (ODIs)

Head to Head


Prior to this series, only two ODIs were played between West Indies and UAE. The last of those was played in 2018.

While West Indies have been comfortable winners in all three matches so far, UAE can take comfort in that they scored 200+ in the last two such ODIs.

UAE Form


UAE couldn’t celebrate their momentous occasion of 100th ODI, crashing to a seven-wicket loss on Sunday. With 88 balls remaining, it was a comprehensive defeat.

Poor batting from the top-order left them 129 for 6, but they did well to recover and post 202 all out. Debutant Ali Naseer’s 58 gave them a bit of respectability.

The bowlers tried their best but the target wasn’t a challenging one on an easy track. Three bowlers took a wicket each but it was fair to say that UAE were never in the game.

UAE Team News


Rameez Shahzad was hit on the helmet in the first ODI and although he returned to bat, it remains to be seen if he plays any part in this match.

West Indies Form


West Indies looked in total control of the match as they kickstarted a new era under coach Daren Sammy. Keemo Paul took 3 for 34 with the ball marking his comeback after nearly one year.

Newly-promoted vice-captain Brandon King sparkled with an assured 112 as an opener with the 203-run chase never troubling them. He received good support from Shamarh Brooks’ 44.

Shai Hope, captaining for the first time, ended the match with two sixes and could once again look to his top-order doing the job.

West Indies Team News


West Indies handed debuts to Dominic Drakes and Kavem Hodge in the first ODI. They could look to close out the series before making further changes.
