New Zealand will be aiming to win the series against UAE after taking the first T20I when the two teams square off on Saturday, August 19, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium ( New Zealand vs UAE ). In the opening match, the UAE provided the Blackcaps with a fierce challenge, as they could only muster a total of 155/6 while batting first. With six wickets in hand in the second innings, UAE just needed 72 runs off the final ten overs.

They lost by 19 runs, though, as a result of their lack of chasing expertise. In order to defeat the Kiwis in the second game, the Muhammad Waseem-led team would try to learn from their mistakes in the first one.

Pitch Report ( New Zealand vs UAE ) :

This pitch benefits evenly to both the batters and the bowlers. In the first few overs, there will be a lot of lateral movement and the swing bowlers will enjoy bowling with the new ball on this wicket. However, spinners don’t get much purchase on this wicket as the pitch is relatively flat.
