United Arab Emirates (UAE) won the toss and asked Bangladesh to bat in the second T20I match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

These two sides have faced each other only twice before in this format and both times Bangladesh emerge victorious. 

The Tigers defeated them on Sunday in the first match of the two-match series by just seven runs. Before that, in the Asia Cup in 2016, Bangladesh were comfortable winners by 51 runs. 

Bangladesh are struggling in the shortest format of the game and they are trying to bounce back from the failure. They will focus on creating a winning culture ahead of the T20 World Cup which will be held in Australia in October.

Meanwhile, it is a good opportunity for UAE to see how far they have come going into the big event.

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Sabbir Rahman, Litton Das, Afif Hossain, Yasir Ali, Mosaddek Hossain, Nurul Hasan(w/c), Nasum Ahmed, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain.

United Arab Emirates (Playing XI): Muhammad Waseem, Chirag Suri, Aryan Lakra, Vriitya Aravind(w), Chundangapoyil Rizwan(c), Basil Hameed, Aayan Afzal Khan, Zawar Farid, Karthik Meiyappan, Sabir Ali, Zahoor Khan.
