Ahmed Raza from UAE has asked his team-mates to play naturally. Natural game is what Raza wants. He also urged to his team mates to make their basics right. If they desire to beat Ireland on Monday’s match, they have to focus on the basics.
The UAE Team
The UAE team beat Netherlands by six wickets in the match that took place at the Harare Sports Club. Hence, it has one foot in the World Cup Qualifier Super Six phase. They got their second win by beating the Netherlands. Before this, they won against Papua New Guinea. In the match against Netherlands, the captain took 5-26.
However, the real challenge for UAE is to beat Zimbabwe. Although they have secured their position in the final World Cup Qualifier stage, however, a victory against Zimbabwe will help them move forward. According to the present scenario, the UAE will still have the chance to move forward even if they lose.
However, in case if they lose, they will move forward if the results turn their way. Right now, the team UAE has four points and it secures a third place in Group A. They do not have a promising record against the Irish. They have not won any of the match in the five One Day Internationals against Irish.
What Ahmed Raza Believes
Raza believes that it is high time and the team should move on now. Whatever has happened has happened in the past. Now, it is time to forget everything that happened in the past, but they should move forward. He feels that World Cup Qualifier is the ideal place to change the record. The 29-year-old spinner said that there is no pressure on them.
He praises the team for playing some good cricket in the competition. The team is geared up and ready to face the competition. He feels that the team is charged up now. Hence, they will just go out and enjoy the cricket.
