Scotland will be eying its second consecutive win as they face the United Arab Emirates in the 12th game of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023. Scotland defeated Ireland in the last game, and the side has momentum. The United Arab Emirates has struggled, and they had a poor outing in the last game against Oman.
Scotland has a good record against UAE and has defeated them thrice in the last four games. They will feel confident after the good show against Ireland in the last game. UAE needs to beat its way out of poor form. They have lost the last six ODI games, and the players must deliver a strong show to defeat Scotland.
Richie Berrington would feel proud of the 1-wicket win in the last game against Ireland. They punched above their weight and held their nerves in the game's dying stages to cross the finishing line. However, the Scottish skipper would expect better efforts from his top order and bowlers as they look to take a step closer to the World Cup.
Christopher McBride played an important knock in the last game and must set up a big partnership with Matthew Cross. The middle order failed to convert starts in the last game, and they need runs from George Munsey, Brandon McMullen, and Richie Berrington in this game. Michael Leask played a match-winning knock against Ireland, adding strength to the batting with Mark Watt and Chris Greaves.
The bowling attack will fancy its chances against the struggling UAE batting line-up. They need a good show from Brandon McMullen and Chris Sole. McMullen will feel confident after his fifer in the last game. Safyaan Sharif and Mark Watt have an important role in the middle overs. They will also need good spells from Leask, Greaves and Christopher McBride.

Muhammad Waseem's side is staring down the barrel. They have lost both their games and went down against Oman by 5 wickets in the last game. Their World Cup dream hangs in the balance, and the side needs a strong effort in this contest. Waseem must lead from the front and put up a solid performance in this game.
They will need a good start at the top from Muhammad Waseem and Rohan Mustafa, the most experienced batters. Vriitya Aravind has done well in recent matches, and he must build partnerships with Rameez Shahzad and Asif Khan in the middle order. The side will also need runs down the order from Basil Hameed, Ali Naseer, and Aayan Afzal Khan.
Junaid Siddique and Ali Naseer must get early breakthroughs as Scotland has a strong top order. Zahoor Khan and Aayan Afzal Khan must bowl tight lines in the middle overs to put their opponents under pressure. Karthik Meiyappan, Basil Hameed, and Mustafa add to the side's variety with the ball.

It will be clear skies in Bulawayo on June 23. We have seen a good wicket so far at this venue where batsmen have played their stokes easily. There is some assistance for the spinners on this track. The side batting first must have 300 runs on the board to defend it successfully.
Bulawayo Athletic Club is a small ground, and it allows batsmen to play their strokes easily. Fast bowlers get the new ball to move but have little from the surface as the game progresses. Spinners have earned rewards from the track as they can turn the ball sharply on this surface.
Both games played at this venue have been won by teams chasing the score. It hasn't been an easy wicket to set a score as the wicket has allowed batsmen to play their strokes even in the second innings. Hence, we expect the side winning the toss to bowl first.
The United Arab Emirates would feel low, losing six ODI games in a row. Their batting line-up is strong but hasn't been at its best. They will need a good show from the top order to win this game. Scotland played an aggressive brand of cricket in the last game to defeat a stronger side. They have depth in their batting and bowling, making them favorites.
