UAE vs New Zealand Today Match Prediction Preview:
Welcome to the UAE vs NZ Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. After two exciting T20Is, the third T20I between these two nations will be a series decider.
UAE stunned the Kiwis in the 2nd T20I as they defeated them by 7 wickets. It was a historic moment for them as this was their first ever victory against New Zealand.
New Zealand don’t have much time to recover as they will be back on the field in less than 24 hours. Tim Southee and co. would be hoping that the loss was just an aberration.
We can expect another fighting performance from UAE in this T20I at the Dubai International Stadium.
