Uncovered interest rate parity

For UIP, the expected change in future spot rate = interest country A - country B, therefore, if interest rate country A is greater than B, we would expect to see currency A depreciate against B.

However, I believe that if interest rate in country A is greater than B, we should expect capital inflow to A and outflow from B leading to appreciation  of currency A.

Why does UIP yield different outcome to capital flow perspective?
