UAE vs New Zealand, 3rd T20I: Kiwis Cameback Strong Against UAE to Score 32-Runs Win

The 3rd T20I of UAE vs New Zealand played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The UAE won the toss and opted to ball first. New Zealand was looking for a score of 180-185 but UAE bowlers pulled them back. NZ scored 166-5 in 20 overs. In a game that might decide a series, New Zealand has a strong score. UAE are currently speaking in a group, with Waseem at the helm. The partnership between Will Young and Mark Chapman for the third wicket, which started after the New Zealand openers failed, established the tone. With some powerful blows from the pair against the spinners, it was worth 84. When they were about to launch their final assault, Junaid Siddique returned and swiftly dispatched both of them. With those two wickets, UAE managed to regain the lead, but Santner’s final cameo helped his team reach 166. It’s quite challenging to score big in this big ground because the slower balls are clinging to the field, as we saw in that innings.

Right from the run chase, UAE didn’t seem getting its rhythm anywhere in the match. For this difficult pitch for strokeplay, 166 was an above-par total. Lister got the dangerous Waseem in his first over after Southee’s maiden over. For a while, Aravind, Aryansh made promises, but Santner and Ashok impressed with their spin bowling. Only Aayan Khan was able to middle most of the balls; nevertheless, neither Hameed nor any other batter provided him with enough assistance. For three wickets, Lister bowled effectively. UAE could only scored 134-7 in 20 overs and lost the match by 32 runs. New Zealand won the match with ease. It’s the only game in the series in which UAE was significantly outplayed. But what a performance the hosts gave. They were competent operators in domestic settings. Although New Zealand had to put in a lot of effort to win, winning all three tosses did assist.The series is now 2-1.
