UAE vs New Zealand T20I 2023: Squad, Schedule, Live Streaming: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host New Zealand in a three-match T20I series from August 17-21, 2023 in Dubai. This will be the first-ever T20I series between the two nations.
UAE, ranked 16th, will look to test themselves against the World #3 side ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Asia Regional Final. The top two teams from that event will qualify for the 2024 T20 World Cup. UAE is yet to announce their squad.
New Zealand has named a second-string squad without many of their regular T20I players like Kane Williamson and Ish Sodhi. The Kiwis will be led by veteran Tim Southee and have handed maiden call-ups to all-rounder Dean Foxcroft and leg-spinner Adi Ashok.
Pace bowler Kyle Jamieson also returns after injury. The visitors will look to use this series to test their bench strength.
All matches will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Both teams will aim to finalize their squads and strategies before the T20 World Cup tournaments ahead.
