India World Cup 2015 Virat Kohli MS Dhoni
India will look to take their awesome form at this ICC World Cup 2015 into the match against the UAEReuters

After smashing through Pakistan and South Africa – two of the most high profile opponents in Pool B – India face UAE in what is expected to be a more sedate contest, even if with the same result is expected in this ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

The Adelaide Oval and the MCG got to witness India at their absolute best over the last couple of matches, and now it is the turn of Perth, with another huge crowd expected to cheer Team India, even if they are only playing an Associate side in UAE.

One of the great things about the two performances from the Indian side so far in this CWC has been their all-round effort, with the bowlers complementing the batsmen pretty well, and come Saturday MS Dhoni will hope for another similar all-round effort.

"We are approaching it [the match against the UAE] the same way like we approached the other games," said Shikhar Dhawan on Friday. "We have had a few days to relax and the rest days have done us good.

"We will prepare ourselves well for the next game and continue to play the way we have so far. We are going to play with the same fighting spirit and keep the same intensity tomorrow against UAE."

Dhawan has been the form batsman for India at this World Cup so far, with the opener carrying on from his half-century against Pakistan with a terrific big hundred against South Africa. Happy with his efforts so far, Dhawan has no plans to rest on his laurels.

"When you play back-to-back good innings you do gain a lot and carry the confidence going into the next game," added the left-hander. "I can say that I've gotten used to the bounce finally.

"I enjoy playing my shots and I will go for them whenever I get loose deliveries. I am enjoying my batting at the moment."

While India are expected to roll over the UAE in this match, the team from the Middle East have shown they are no pushovers. They gave Zimbabwe a good game in their World Cup 2015 opener, before going down to Ireland in a pretty close contest earlier this week.

Having nearly tasted victory in their first two matches, UAE will go into this match with no fear, especially with all the pressure on India to come up with a positive result.

"We know they are big stars but we will take this game like the previous two games," said UAE captain Mohammad Tauqir. "The intensity is going to be the same and we will not be intimidated by their names or their status. All the boys are looking forward to this game and everybody wants to do well.

"The Zimbabwe game was close and the Ireland game was even closer. We know we are playing well and getting closer to a win. Both games were close and we need to get over this line and win the next one. We are taking it easy and sticking to our basics, doing it right and enjoying the game. We are getting closer to victory."
