UAE-Zim first ODI today

United Arab Emirates' new one-day international captain Mohammad Naveed is hoping for another electric crowd when their ODI series against Zimbabwe kicks off at the Harare Sports Club on Wednesday.

UAE are all set to take on Zimbabwe in a four-match ODI series at the Harare Sports Club, the same venue where they registered their first-ever win in the 50-over format against a Test-playing nation.

Although UAE couldn't qualify for the main tournament that is taking place this year in England and Wales, but their memorable win over Zimbabwe in the qualifier still gives "goosebumps" to the new UAE captain.

"It is great to be back in Harare as we have some great memories, and I have goosebumps remembering that last match," said Mohammad Naveed ahead of the first ODI.

Naveed played a vital role in taking his side across the line during the last encounter with Zimbabwe. He was adjudged player of the match for his fiery 10-ball 22* and returns of 3/40 as well as for holding his nerve while defending 15 runs in the final over, which powered UAE to a thrilling three-run win by DLS method.
