Rohan Mustafa Speaks on UAE vs Australia T20

Just a few days back, Read Scoops announced the news of the UAE cricket team scheduled to play a historic single T20I match against Australia in Abu Dhabi. Why historic? It’s the first time UAE will be playing Australia in this format of the game, giving the latter a warm up before they play Pakistan in a series of 3 T20Is.

It’s a maaaaaaaasssive opportunity for every member of that UAE squad, and UAE Cricket as a whole. Each of those players will get a chance to showcase their talents on a new stage, while this could give UAE Cricket the chance to schedule more matches/series against top international sides like Australia.


The one-off game will be played tomorrow, 22nd October 2018, at 3:30pm IST (2pm local time) and the game will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1, Abu Dhabi. Read Scoops caught up with UAE captain Rohan Mustafa to know what the feeling is like approaching what may be one of the biggest matches of his career so far.

He said, “It’s a great opportunity to play against a mighty team like Australia, both for me personally as well as for the entire UAE team. We’re going to try our level best to do well and impress on this big stage. Hopefully, we’ll also get similar matches like this against other top international teams. If so, our team will have the chance to do well and come up in the future.”

We didn’t get the time to get too much from Mustafa as we didn’t want to take up much of his time, given the fact that the team has been busy in preparations for this mega encounter. Even though the Aussie team seems a little dilapidated without Warner and Smith, it’s still going to be a steep mountain to climb for Afghanistan.

We’re hoping Rohan Mustafa and his boys can shine in their debut game against Australia in the shortest format of the game. Keep reading for more updates on the Australia tour of UAE.
