In a list of exciting announcements made by Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), the first ODI match between UAE and Nepal will be live streamed. More details on the live stream will be made shortly.
Nepal is scheduled to tour UAE for a 3-match ODI and T20I series in Jan/Feb 2019. All matches will be played at the ICC Academy grounds at Dubai Sports City, starting at 9.30am (local time).
The ODI matches will be played on 25th, 26th and 28th Jan 2019. Following Emirates Board’s disciplinary action against current captain Rohan Mustafa along with two other national squad players, Mohammad Naveed has been appointed as the captain of the squad for the first ODI game on 25th Jan 2019.
Both teams last met in an ODI was in the 2018 Asia Cup Qualifiers in Malaysia, in which UAE were triumphant. Nepal need one more ODI match to get their official ICC ODI Team ranking.
