World Cup 2015: India eye big win against minnows UAE

New Delhi, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 27 February 2015, 06:58 PM

Defending champions India are soaring high after demolishing arch-rivals Pakistan and mighty South Africa in their first two league matches in ICC World Cup 2015. The Men in Blue would look to continue their winning streak, when they take on minnows UAE in their third match at Perth tomorrow.

It will be learning curve for the UAE team, as they stand no chance against the defending champions, who simply routed Pakistan and South Africa in its previous matches.

The battling unit has performed commendably well, while the bowlers’ performance has surprised everyone in the first two matches. In the third match, India will be without ace fast bowler Mohammed Shami, but that is unlikely to make much difference against UAE.

With team going strongly, MS Dhoni and his men are focused on grabbing the top spot in pool B, which would enable them play the fourth-placed team of pool A in quarters.

The match against minnows UAE will also provide a chance to register a big win and enhance the net run-rate in group stages.

With top four batsmen in form, it could be threatening signs for an inexperienced UAE bowling attack, whose collective experience is less than 30 matches
