United Arab Emirates included two uncapped players in their 15-member squad for the ICC World T20 in Bangladesh. 18-year-old Moaaz Qazi and 20-year-old Rohit Singh, who were both part of the team playing the Under-19 World Cup have earned call-ups to the senior team.

Two other players - Sharif Asadullah and Faizan Asif - are making a comeback to the side. Asadullah played the last of his two T20s in August 2013 while Faizan, who has played four List A matches for the team, hasn't been a part of the team since playing against Ireland in March 2013.

UAE, led by Khurram Khan, are placed in Group B of the qualifying round along with Zimbabwe, Ireland and Netherlands.

United Arab Emirates: Khurram Khan (captain), Ahmed Raza, Amjad Ali (wk), Amjad Javed, Sharif Asadullah, Faizan Asif, Kamran Shahzad, Manjula Guruge, Moaaz Qazi, Rohan Mustafa, Swapnil Patil, Rohit Singh, Shadeep Silva, Shaiman Anwar, Vikrant Shetty
