ICC World Cup 2015 India vs UAE

India will take on UAE in their third league match of the ICC World Cup 2015 at Perth on Saturday. After registering two big wins against Pakistan and South Africa in their first two league games, Team India will be looking to secure a hat-trick of wins this World Cup. While India are favorites to win this game, UAE too will try and record their first ever World Cup win. The two teams will meet at the WACA this Saturday.

Weather forecast for the India-UAE tie at Perth is extremely positive. Bright and sunny conditions are expected to welcome the two teams. A good south-easterly breeze at about 20 kmph will continue to blow over the region. Decent humidity levels will prevail for the course of the match. Maximum temperature will remain around 31°C while the minimum will hover around 18°C.

India will be going into this match with a lot of intent and confidence by their side. Although there are talks about possible experimentation, MS Dhoni may not make too many changes in the winning combination. India’s strike bowler Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the UAE game due to injury. This may lead to the inclusion of swing specialist Bhuvneshwar Kumar, if he’s fit. Otherwise, India may consider playing all-rounder Stuart Binny.

Meanwhile, the inexperienced UAE side will hope to put up a good show against the defending world champions as the likes of Amjad Ali and Shaiman Anwar in the batting line-up may pack some surprise for the Indian bowling unit. UAE also pack some decent bowlers who may help the underdogs gain some ground against India. But overall, UAE will have to be miraculously amazing in order to conjure an upset against an upbeat Indian side.

India will play their fourth league game against West Indies at Perth only. Hence, the men in blue will surely look to get used to the WACA surface before the Jamaican hurdle surfaces.

In addition to all this, another riveting contest awaits us this Saturday as co-hosts Australia and New Zealand will lock horns at Auckland in what promises to be a thriller. Weather for the Australia-New Zealand Auckland clash is bright and sunny with maximum temperature expected to stay around 26°C and minimum is likely to settle at 15°C. The trans-Tasmanian rivals will surely up the ante of ICC World Cup 2015. Skymet will keep you updated on cricket, weather, and more as the ICC World Cup 2015 unfurls.
