They were tasked with chasing a challenging total of 326 runs but failed to perform with the bat, getting bowled out for just 192 runs.

Both teams have had a disappointing campaign so far, losing all three matches and being eliminated from the World Cup race. Although such a defeat can be demoralizing, Ireland will aim to regroup and finish their campaign on a positive note.

They currently sit at the bottom of the Group B points table with a negative net run rate of -2.071. Their campaign started with a loss against Sri Lanka, followed by two consecutive defeats against Oman and Scotland. These losses were significant, and the team is eager to break free from their poor form in the upcoming match against Ireland.

In their most recent match against Scotland, UAE opted to bowl first. Junaid Siddique delivered an economical spell, taking three wickets and helping restrict Scotland to a total of 282/8 in 50 overs on a favorable batting pitch. However, UAE’s batsmen struggled to convert their promising starts into substantial scores, resulting in the team being bowled out for 171 runs in 35.3 overs. This defeat marked their third consecutive loss in the tournament.
