CAN-U19 vs UAE-U19 Match Prediction
Canada U19 have not an ideal start to their preparations in the warm-up games. They will be under pressure having lost all their games. UAE U19, on the other hand, put up a clinical all-round display. They have dominated with both bat and ball and are in good form coming into this contest. Therefore, they will look to carry on the good performance in their first game of the U19 World Cup 2022. Based on recent form in the warm-up matches, UAE U19 certainly seem to have the upper hand over Canada U19 and are likely to start the tournament with a win.
