It will be UAE vs WI yet again for the 2nd ODI at Sharjah on the 6th of June.
Both these teams are struggling at the moment to qualify for the ICC ODI World Cup and this series gives them a chance to be able to do so.
Looking back at their previous games, UAE lost to Nepal in the ACC qualifiers by 7 wickets and will be on the lookout to perform better against the Windies.
