Competing at its first ICC World Twenty20, UAE was the fourth team to qualify from the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier UAE 2013 last November after beating Netherlands by 10 runs in Abu Dhabi. Having made 117 for 8, UAE restricted its opponents to 107 for 9 with off-spinner Nasir Aziz taking 3 for 21 and left-arm spinner Shadeep Silva taking 1 for 9 from his four overs. It finished the qualifying tournament in fourth place after losing a play-off to Nepal by five wickets. Its leading batsman in the tournament was 42-year-old left-hander Khurram Khan who scored 255 runs (over 100 more than the next UAE batsman) at a strike-rate of 128.78. Khan also top-scored with 49 in UAE’s key 50-over victory over Namibia at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier New Zealand 2014 in late January that secured qualification for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. It will be its second trip to the ICC Cricket World Cup, and its first since 1996.
