The second match of the UAE Tri-Nation series between United Arab Emirates and Ireland is scheduled to be played on January 13 at the ICC Academy in Dubai. Live telecast will begin at 9:30 AM local time.
Rameez Shahzad top-scored with 75 in the first game and the team will look to him to score the big runs once again. Ashfaq Ahmed and Mohammad Boota also chipped in with decent contributions. Mohammad Naveed and Ahmed Raza picked up two wickets apiece and Ireland will look to be watchful against them next time.
Ed Joyce was the architect of Ireland's run chase in the first match. The top-order batsman struck an unbeaten century to take his team over the line and he will be the key man with the bat here as well. Boyd Rankin was the standout performer for the visitors with the ball. The fast bowler took two wickets and conceded just 26 runs in his 10 overs.
