Black Caps to play T20 series against UAE in August

[ad_1]

The Black Caps will play their first full series against the United Arab Emirates later this year.

New Zealand will stop in the UAE en route to England in August for a three-match T20 series with the hosts.

It will be the second time New Zealand have played the UAE in a full international break, following the 1996 World Cup ODI between the two sides in Pakistan.

New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White is delighted the Black Caps will be playing the quasi-national team.

“NZC has a close relationship with the UAE Cricket Board and our players are very familiar with the environment.

“I know the Black Caps will be looking forward to testing themselves against a competitive UAE team.”

UAE Cricket Council general secretary Mubashshir Usmani described New Zealand as one of the top T20 teams in the world.

“This series will be a huge opportunity for our players not only to compete against top teams but also to learn from some of the best players in the world.

“We are fully committed to the growth and development of cricket in the UAE and we thank Cricket New Zealand for their support.”

The three games will be held on August 17, 19 and 20 respectively, and the specific venue has not yet been determined.
