The UAE are among the teams participating in the first round for a chance to qualify for the Super 12 stage. They will be vying for qualification with Namibia, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Scotland, the West Indies and Zimbabwe.

The national team face Namibia, Sri Lanka and the Netherlands in their first-round group. The top two sides from that group will get the chance to play in the main event.
