Both USA and UAE are going to get vital game-time in the middle against the top English County Clubs, Surrey and Lancashire, as both will be on their annual two-week pre-season tour of Dubai.
While UAE have had the opportunity to play against the touring English County Clubs in the past years, this will be the first time USA will get the opportunity to play white-ball cricket against formidable opposition, as they continue their preparations towards ICC World Cricket League Division 2 in Apr 2019 in Namibia.
Both USA and UAE will play matches in 50-overs and T20 format against Surrey & Lancashire while UAE will also play a 2-day match against Lancashire in the latter’s final match on their pre-season tour.
