The 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup is well underway and India is looking like a favorite yet again. They are 2-0 in pool play so far and looking very strong, and that doesn’t look good for United Arab Emirates (UAE) who are 0-2 and ready for a battle. You can watch their upcoming match streaming live online in a number of ways.
UAE began the Cricket World Cup in Match 8 and it was a loss to Zimbabwe by four wickets. They held on with Ireland in Match 16, but still ended up losing by two wickets to push their record down to 0-2.
India’s first match was a big win over Pakistan in Match 4 in which they won by a whopping 76 runs. Things got even better for them in Match 13 when they absolutely destroyed South Africa by 130 runs.
There may be one advantage for UAE in the upcoming match and it’s that India fast bowler Mohammed Shami has now been ruled out due to a knee injury, per ESPN Cric Info.
“Mohammed Shami got a mild left-knee problem and had ultrasound-guided injection yesterday,” RN Baba, India’s media manager, said on the eve of the game. “For his long-term management perspective he won’t be available for tomorrow’s match against UAE.”
Left-arm spinner Axar Patel, medium-pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and seam-bowling allrounder Stuart Binney are the top bowling options to replace Shami. After taking six wickets against Pakistan and South Africa, Shami’s presence will be missed on the pitch.
UAE will need to do a lot to take down India, and some believe they really don’t have a chance at all. The India Times even wrote a humorous article stating the eight things UAE could do to beat India and it includes bringing on the belly dancers and threatening to stop oil supply.
The match between India vs. United Arab Emirates is scheduled to begin at 14:30 local time (06:30 GMT) on Sunday, March 1, at the WACA Ground in Perth, Australia.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 1 a.m. E.S.T. on Saturday February 28, but that is just one option to watch India vs. United Arab Emirates live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.
Some of the other options include CricHD, PTV Sports, Sky Sports 2, or Star Sports, and these will be good to check out India vs. United Arab Emirates in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. You will be able to enjoy any of these streaming options to watch the match live and not miss a moment of the action.
