The hosts United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the visitors Ireland will face each other at Zayed Cricket Stadium (Abu Dhabi) on Monday (18th January) in the last game of the four-match ODI series.

Currently, UAE are leading this series by 1-0. While the hosts won the first ODI by 6 wickets, which was also their first-ever ODI victory against Ireland, the next two ODIs were cancelled due to COVID-19 health concerns.

The fourth ODI has been rescheduled on Monday after UAE authorities gave the green signal for the UAE squad to restart their competitive cricket.

In the first ODI of this series, Chundangapoyil Rizwan and Muhammad Usman’s centuries helped the hosts to claim their first-ever ODI victory against Ireland. Rohan Mustafa is also a big name of this side for his useful all-round skills – 754 runs and 43 wickets in 38 ODIs. Captain Ahmed Raza (36 wickets in 32 ODIs) is another crucial name in their bowling line-up.

Wicket-keeper batsman Vriitya Aravind and right-arm pacer Junaid Siddique can impress any days.
