Pakistan and United Arab Emirates (UAE) are preparing to face off against one another in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, and both are in desperate need of a win. Through the first couple of weeks, Pakistan is sitting with a 1-2 record, while UAE is still winless with an 0-3 record. Don’t miss a second of the action by catching it streaming live online.
In Pakistan’s first match of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, they ended up losing by 76 runs to India. Their second match was a worse loss, in which they were defeated by the West Indies by 150 runs. Finally, they got a win in their third match when they defeated Zimbabwe by 20 runs.
UAE is still seeking their first win, and it has not been an easy World Cup so far. They lost by 105 runs to Zimbabwe in their first match. In their second match, Ireland won by two wickets. Match three saw them lose by nine wickets to India.
Right now, both teams are taking up the final two spots in Pool B for the pool play in the 2015 Cricket World Cup. Pakistan was thrilled to get their first World Cup win per Cricket.com, and they owe a lot of it to Mohammad Irfan.
“He showed his class today and we expected he would come out the way he did,” Zimbabwe wicketkeeper Brendan Taylor said of Irfan.
“I think we were playing the balls that shouldn’t have been played, but he does make it a handful for you, and that’s why he’s a world-class performer.”
It’s going to take a lot of work on the part of UAE to get their first win of the World Cup, but it isn’t totally out of the question. Stopping Irfan will be just one thing they need to focus on, and a lot of strong play will be necessary to finally get in better pool standing.
