Dubai [UAE], Mar 14 (ANI): Fast bowler Mohammad Naveed will continue to lead United Arab Emirates (UAE) T20I team for their two-match series against the United States of America (USA). 
Naveed had been made in charge for UAE's 2-1 series loss defeat to Nepal in the month of January. Rohan Mustafa, the regular captain of UAE was suspended for eight weeks along with Ahmed Raza and Rameez Shahzad, following tweets that were critical of facilities in Pakistan during UAE's tour there last year in December for the ACC Emerging Teams Cup.
All these three players have returned to the squad to play against the US, however, Naveed will still remain in charge of the team.
Amjad Gul has also been recalled to the 14-man UAE squad for the series against the US.
Following the conclusion of the T20I's, a UAE developmental XI will play the USA in a series of 50-over matches.
The first T20I between UAE and USA will be played on March 15 at the ICC Academy in Dubai. (ANI)
