The UAE have completed their selection process for the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier to be played in South Africa this April. Khurram Khan retains the captaincy, with former captains Saqib Ali and Arshad Ali also in the squad which is packed with all-rounders. Of the 15-man squad eight were at last year’s Asia Cup, while three - Khurram Khan, Arshad Ali and Naeemuddin Aslam - remain from the squad for the ICC Trophy in Ireland in 2005, the last time UAE were vying for a World Cup place.
