Sharjah Cricket Stadium records: Sharjah Cricket Stadium has hosted a total of 16 T20Is including two T20 World Cup matches till date.
Two Asian teams in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, who have qualified from Round 1 to Super 12s, will lock horns against each other in the third Group 1 match of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021 today.
The match will also be the first Super 12 match to be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Having already hosted a couple of matches in this World Cup, Sharjah is scheduled to host nine more matches of the league stage.
Considering how Afghanistan had played 12 out of the 14 T20Is in Sharjah before the commencement of this World Cup, it is but obvious for their players to dominate the batting and bowling stats with respect to this venue.

Other than Afghanistan, Kenya and Zimbabwe have played four T20Is each in Sharjah. Scotland, who will be playing their first Super 12 match against Afghanistan here tomorrow, have already featured in three T20Is at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Despite its smaller boundary size, Sharjah had managed to aid the bowlers primarily spinners in the recently concluded Indian Premier League 2021. It will be interesting to see how the pitch here behaves in the World Cup.
