The UAE make their first appearance at a World Cup since 1996, and if they are to win any games they will need runs from their talismanic vice-captain Khurram Khan.
Until the squad for the World Cup was announced he was captain, but he remains an absolutely vital member of the squad.
In late 2014 he became the oldest ODI centurion when he made 132 not out against Afghanistan at the age of 43. He may be in his forties, but there are few cricketers who are fitter and more driven.
His ODI average is over 50 and he can keep things tight and pick up wickets with his off spin bowling.
