Canada and the UAE will begin their campaign against each other. They also played in the 13th place playoff during the previous edition of the U19 World Cup. The cricket betting sites have given the tag of favorites to UAE and on the face of it, that seems well deserved. Is there an opportunity to bet on the upset here? Let us look at the two teams in more detail.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Canada U19 vs UAE U19, U19 World Cup 2022. The match is going to be played at the Conaree Sports Club, Basseterre, St Kitts on the 15th of January 2022.
This is going to be the first match that the Canada U19 team has played since the previous edition of the World Cup in 2020. That is just about two years ago and shows why the team tends to struggle when it plays the big tournaments. There is just not enough exposure to top-level cricket.
Canada did play a warm-up match against Zimbabwe that it lost by 26 runs.
We expect a Canadian team where the batting is going to be fragile. Most of the talent is going to be concentrated in the top-3. Mihir Patel is one of the players to watch out for. He is a pretty sound batsman but we doubt he will have too much support.
Among the bowlers, Harjap Saini and Mohit Prashar are the two that have been talked up before the tournament. Keep an eye out for them. We are likely to know a lot more about the teams after this match, however, it does not seem like Canadian cricket is going to throw up too many surprises.
Anoop Chima, Ethan Gibson, Gurnek Johal Singh, Harjap Saini, Jash Shah, Mihir Patel, Sahil Badin, Sheel Patel, Yasir Mahmood, Kairav Sharma, Parmveer Kharoud.
UAE has the advantage of having participated in the U19 Asia Cup just before this tournament and so its players will be somewhat match-ready. Yes, UAE may not have done too well against its Asian neighbors but they should still back themselves to get the better of Canada in this match.
UAE also registered a massive win over Papua New Guinea in the warm-up fixture.
Shival Bawa and Dhruv Parashar seem to be the two best batsmen in the UAE team with Punya Mehra and Ronak Panoly also quite capable of scoring runs. This should give UAE much more depth than their Canadian counterparts.
Nilansh Keswani and Aayan Afzal Khan were the two bowlers that made the most impact in the warm-up match. They are likely to form the core of the bowling unit but there is no shortage of options and the captain can turn to a number of other players if needed.
Adhitya Shetty, Kai Smith, Alishan Sharafu, Dhruv Parashar, Aryansh Sharma, Nilansh Keswani, Punya Mehra, Ali Naseer, Aayan Khan, Vijaya Raghavan, Jash Giyanani.
The team that wins the toss is likely to want to bat first.

The weather in St. Kitts is expected to be nice and sunny on match day. We should have no trouble getting the entire 50 overs a side as no interruptions are expected. The pitch should be a bit on the bouncier side, as this surface has proven to be in the past. That could test the batsmen from both teams but also provide an opportunity for them to score freely.
A score of somewhere around 220 is going to be par for the surface in our opinion.
We are going to bet on UAE to win this match. It is the team that has played more cricket recently, has won its warm-up fixture, and seems to have more resources to spend on their cricket.
Bet on the UAE U19 team to win.
