UAE have named a 14-man squad for their upcoming ICC Intercontinental Cup and Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Championship games in the Netherlands.

Khurram Khan will captain the side in the four-day Intercontinental Cup match, starting on July 16, ahead of two WCL fixtures on July 21 and 23 in Rotterdam.

UAE are well placed in the WCL, having picked up 10 points from their opening six matches to currently lie second in the table.

A top-two finish would see them automatically qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, although a second opportunity would await them at the ICC Cricket World Qualifier in 2014 should they slip down the table.

Meanwhile, UAE lie fourth in the Intercontinental Cup, having won one, lost one and drawn one of their opening three matches.

New coach Aaqib Javed, the former Pakistan quick bowler, and his squad fly to Europe for their crucial assignments on July 12.

UAE Squad: Khurram Khan (Captain), Mohamed Tauqir (Vice-Captain), Ahmed Raza, Amjad Javed, Amjad Ali, Rohan Mustafa, Saqib Ali, Vikrant Shetty, Haroon Iftikhar, Arfan Haider, Manjula Asanka Guruge, Shaiman Anwar, Asadullah Shareef and Muhammad Naveed Saleem
