Uganda and United Arab Emirates (UAE) will contest the outright lead in the ICC Intercontinental Shield when their four-day match begins in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Both teams won their only matches in the tournament, Uganda beating Bermuda by seven wickets last August in Bermuda and UAE defeating Namibia by four wickets in Windhoek last month.

UAE are arguably favourites on the basis of home advantage and recent form.

The teams:

Uganda: Akbar Baig (capt), Arthur Ziraba, Lawrence Sematimba, Benjamin Musoke, Davis Arinaitwe, Roger Mukasa, Arthur Kyobe, Frank Nsubuga, Waiswa Charles, Dennis Tabby, Ronald Ssemanda

UAE: Khurram Khan (Capt), Arfan Haider, Arshad Ali, Saqib Ali, Naeemuddin Aslam, Abdul Rehman, Fayyaz Ahmed, Amjad Javed, Qasim Zubair, Moiz Shahid, Shoaib Sarwar
