The United Arab Emirates Cricket board has announced a strong 15-member squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia. 

Experienced middle-order batter CP Rizwan will lead the side, while promising keeper-batter Vriitya Aravind will play his deputy in the showpiece event. 

The selected team is a mix of experience and youth. However, the omission of veteran all-rounder Rohan Mustafa has surprised fans across the globe. Notably, Mustafa slammed 96 runs at an average of 48 in the ICC World Cup qualifiers held in Oman earlier this year. 

The selection Committee Chairman of Emirates Cricket, Dr. Tayeb Kamali stated

"Qualifying to play against top national teams of the world at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup marks a milestone with UAE Cricket’s growing strengths in the T20 format. We extend our deep appreciation to all who have invested their time and efforts as we arrive at this unique moment in Emirates Cricket’s history,"

"We wish our team the very best as they continue to make their mark on international cricket at the ICC T20 World Cup."

UAE will lock horns with Bangladesh in a two-match T20I series, starting September 25. They are placed in Group A in the T20 World Cup and will battle it out against Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Namibia to progress to the Super 12 stage.
