UAE vs WI – 3rd ODI – Team Previews
In the previous matches, top-order batsman Brandon King displayed his talent by scoring a century and a half-century, forming a formidable opening partnership with the experienced Johnson Charles. The middle order is strengthened by the presence of captain Shai Hope, considered the team’s best batsman, while Roston Chase and Keemo Paul provide depth to the lineup.
However, notable players such as Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell are unavailable for this series. Despite the absence of key bowlers like Holder, Alzarri Joseph, and Obed McCoy, the West Indies showcased a strong bowling performance in the last match, dismissing UAE for all ten wickets.
Keemo Paul emerged as the standout bowler, taking three wickets. The spin bowling attack, led by experienced off-spinner Roston Chase, also performed impressively in the previous match.
United Arab Emirates
UAE had a disappointing start to the series as their batting unit struggled to set a challenging target for the West Indies. Captain Muhammad Waseem fell short of expectations, while Vritiya Aravind showed some responsibility with a knock of 40 runs at the one-down position.
However, the middle order, consisting of experienced players like Rohan Mustafa and Rameez Shahzad, failed to make a strong impact. The lack of significant contributions from the other batsmen is a cause for concern for UAE.
In terms of bowling, UAE possesses a lineup of experienced bowlers, including Junaid Siddique, who performed well in the first match despite not taking any wickets. With four competent bowlers capable of challenging any team, UAE has a solid bowling attack. However, the fifth bowling option, represented by Ali Naseer and Karthik Meiyappan, negatively affected the team’s momentum in the previous game. Naseer conceded 32 runs in three overs, while Meiyappan had an economy rate of 12.7.

UAE vs WI – 3rd ODI – Pitch Report and Toss Prediction
The Sharjah Cricket Stadium provides a decent batting track, although the average score has slightly decreased in recent years. Historically, chasing a target above 300 has proven to be a challenging task at this venue. Consequently, the team winning the toss should contemplate batting first, taking advantage of the pitch conditions that tend to favour the team setting a target.
