Here is another episode of my T20 World Cup betting tips. In this one, I focus attention on a group A qualifier game between UAE and Netherlands. The winning team would be closer to reserving a place for themselves in the Super 12 group stage.
In my view, the Netherlands will beat the UAE in this crucial game. However, the sides are well-matched, as reflected in their head-to-head record. I expect the game to go down to the wire, with the thinnest of margins afforded to the winner.

UAE Team Review
In this segment of my T20 World Cup betting tips, I look at the probable players in UAE’s playing eleven. The wicketkeeping slot is reserved for Vritya Aravind. Muhammed Waseem and Chirag Suri are likely to open the batting. Skipper C Rizwan is likely to be the batting mainstay in the middle order.
I would also expect to find all rounders Basil Hameed and R Mustafa in the eleven. Seamers J Siddique and K Meiyappan are my first-choice bowlers, likely to be assisted by A Raza. For the remaining spots, I would go for lower middle order batter S Ali and left arm orthodox bowler A Lakra.
Netherlands Team Review
In the next segment of my UAE vs Netherlands predictions, I consider the likely players in Netherlands’ playing eleven. The wicketkeeper’s spot must go to skipper Scott Edwards. Stephen Myburgh and Max O’Dowd will open the batting.
Vikramjit Singh and Tom Cooper will hold the middle order together. Fred Klaasen, Tim Pringle, Paul van Meekeren and Shariz Ahmad are the first-choice bowlers. They will be assisted by all-rounders Logan van Beek and Bas de Leede.
UAE vs Netherlands Head-to-Head
In this section of my T20 world cup predictions for UAE vs Netherlands , I analyse the head-to-head record of the two sides. The teams have played 8 T20I matches against each other and shared the honours. Both have won 4 games each.
UAE vs Netherlands Last Meeting
UAE and Netherlands last met in a T20I game in Dubai on 29 October 2019. It was the 1st qualifying playoff for the ICC men’s T20 World Cup. Having won the toss, UAE elected to bat first. They began disastrously, losing 5 wickets for only 9 runs by the 5th over. Then came a partnership of 35 runs for the sixth wicket between Waheed Ahmed and Mohammad Boota.
Both batsmen were dismissed in the 14th over to leave the side reeling at 45 for 7. Another mini rescue act ensued, with a 33-run stand between skipper Ahmed Raza and Sultan Ahmed. With an excruciatingly slow run rate, UAE hobbled to a final score of 80/9. Raza top scored for his side with 22 from 24 balls. For the Netherlands, seam bowler Brandon Glower took 4/12.
With just over 4 runs an over needed, the target was never going to trouble the Netherlands batters. After UAE dismissed opener Max O’Dowd in the 2nd over, with the score on 5, Ben Cooper and Colin Ackerman steadied the ship. When Ackerman got out in the 10th over, the Netherlands needed only 25 more runs to win.
They knocked them off without further loss of wickets. Cooper remained unbeaten on 41 made from 53 balls. Meanwhile, Ryan ten Doeschate was 16 not out, in his side’s 8-wicket win. For UAE, Rohan Mustafa and Zahoor Khan took a wicket each.
The win was all the more impressive, coming as it did in a crunch game. The victory helped the Netherlands qualify for the T20 World Cup, allowing them to play against full member ICC teams.
UAE vs Netherlands: Players to Look Out for
My UAE vs Netherlands betting tips would be incomplete without considering who are the players to look out for. Netherlands’ allrounder Bas de Leede is the main player on my radar, alongside skipper Scott Edwards.
Among the Dutch bowlers, Paul van Meekeren is a consistent wicket taker. Among the UAE players, I would keep an eye on opener M Waseem and keeper-batter V Aravind. Allrounder Basil Hameed is another consistent performer.
