There is only a single time in cricket that both teams come in front of each other. The UAE team is a newbie team and doesn’t have any record in cricket. So that’s why the UAE has no more matches with the Sri Lanka team. The Sri Lankan team is the most important for the ICC T20 tournament. The Sri Lankan team is also the champion of Asia cup 2022. A few days away, The ICC’s biggest event T20 World Cup 2022, is just, with 16 teams looking to battle, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE). They have reached the round for only the second time in their history. After, they succeeded in their qualifying way against Ireland in February. Now, ahead of their start fixture against the Netherlands, we look at the UAE team more closely. 

Past matches of Sri Lanka vs UAE:

On 26 Feb 2016, Sri Lanka won the match and played with the UAE team. Sri Lanka won this match by 14 runs. This match was the first, and last recent match played between them. UAE won the toss in this match and was selected to bowl first. In the first innings, the opener from the Sir Lankan side played very well and made the score for their team. After they got out, all teams fell one by one. The middle order fails entirely to make runs on board.

The Sir Lankan team makes 129 runs in 20 overs with eight wickets falling. Dinesh Chandimal makes fifty in just 39 bowls from the Sri Lankan sides. They had a strike rate of hundred and twenty-eight. From the UAE sides, Amjad Javed takes 3 wickets in his hand by giving runs of 25 in 4 overs. The UAE team’s openers and middle-order batters are destroyed in the second innings. No one can be reached above 40 runs. From the Sri Lankan side, the captain Lasith Malinga pick up 26 wickets by giving just 26 in a complete 4 overs. So the UAE team couldn’t chase this total and lost this match by only 4 runs, which was a very close loss.

Sri Lanka team:

With a massive 23- run win in the final, the Sri Lankan team registered. They achieve the 40th Match in the history of the Asia Cup. It took 61 matches for Sri Lanka to reach the target. India has played 59 matches in the challenger’s history. 

 As numerous as 26 of the last 30 T20I games played in Dubai saw teams who bat second win the Match. So when Sri Lanka lost the toss and was invited to bat first on Sunday, it needed a courageous effort to outmatch Pakistan. That is exactly what they did when they put up a challenging sum of 170 before speeding out their resistance for 147.

Both of these teams are not yet in any competition. And they do not have any comparison between them. Once the team, Sri Lanka played every international Match. They have the best teams and a fresher champion in the recent Asia cup. On the other hand, the UAE team is newer in international matches. But some chances form that they take time in cricket and strengthen their teams.
