After trying their hand in two T20I, United Arab Emirates will be taking on USA in an ODI game on Monday.
United Arab Emirates are coming off a strong performance against their current opposition in the last game. They showcased their potential to be a genuine side in international cricket, and have some really talented players as well. The team also had the advantage of playing in their own backyard, which gave the players a better gauge of the conditions. Now, the focus will be to emulate a similar form in the ODI and send their opponents back home, empty-handed.
Meanwhile, USA are still finding their feet in cricket and did show some heart in a loss last time out. They have a decent batting lineup, but it was the bowling that let them down. It is apparent that inconsistency will be a problem for the side for a while as the management tries out different players for the team. They are still developing should not take losses hard, instead, have to focus on the positives or the lessons that can be learnt.
