Match Postponed
THE MATCH IS POSTPONED AS WELL! Ahhh... well. No new Covid cases have been reported but the United Arab Emirates do not want to take any risks. There are talks of the match happening on Monday, 18th January, 2021, before the Afghanistan-Ireland series begins on the 21st. In a normal world, we should not have been playing on this date. But the second ODI got postponed and we had the matches moved ahead by a couple of days. And now, with two matches abandoned, the 4th ODI of this series stands with a big question mark. With as many as 4 players from the UAE having tested positive, would the home side want this game to be played? On the other hand, Ireland might want it. They have a bigger series coming up against Afghanistan and with the Emiratis catching them off guard in the first game, the visitors will be keen to make a statement before that series begins. After losing 6 on the trot, the Emiratis finally pulled off a win for the first time in this format, over Ireland. It was an intriguing game, which saw three centuries and nothing much for the bowlers. The side which had more centurions won and rightly so. UAE were in the doldrums at 51/3, chasing 270 but two experienced personnel in Chundangapoyil Rizwan and Muhammad Usman bailed them out with a big stand. Having said that, one feels that Ireland were not attacking. They seemed to be more content with giving opportunities to new players, rather than putting up their best bowlers upfront. Still, they would believe that should have won. The fielding was disappointing with catches going down and run outs being missed. Expect more experimentation from the Irish come Saturday but one can definitely look for an improved display. As far as the UAE are concerned, they will be revelling with their win but it was not just due to two individuals. They bowled brilliantly as well and stifled Ireland in the middle overs. They will be looking to do the basics right.
