Oman vs Bangladesh Team Previews
With their victory over Papua New Guinea, Oman has firmly established themselves as the team to beat. They were helped by the familiar conditions, but that doesn’t take away from their outstanding performance in their first match.
As things currently stand, Oman will be in business even if they lose this upcoming match. A win here, on the other hand, will be enough to advance them to the Super-12 round, which is exactly what they will be aiming for, especially after watching Scotland beat Bangladesh.
Oman’s victory in the first match was largely due to outstanding performances by Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, and Zeeshan Maqsood. The other bowlers did well, but the fielding looked sloppy, which could be an issue against a better-equipped team. Also, Oman’s middle-order has yet to be tested, so it will be interesting to see how they perform in difficult situations.
Overall, Oman has a decent side with a lot of talent in their camp. They made a few errors in the first game, but they didn’t cost them too much. They’ll want to reduce those and focus on what they did well in the first match. If they are successful, Bangladesh will have their work cut out for them.
Oman T20 Squad
Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Kashyap Prajapati, Naseem Khushi (wk), Mohammad Nadeem, Ayaan Khan, Sandeep Goud, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Khurram Nawaz, Fayyaz Butt, Suraj Kumar, Nestor Dhamba, Sufyan Mehmood
Predicted XI: Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Aqib Ilyas, Kashyap Prajapati, Naseem Khushi (wk), Mohammad Nadeem, Ayan Khan, Sandeep Goud, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan
Bangladesh’s fans will be enraged by their six-run defeat at the hands of Scotland, and their disappointment is understandable given Bangladesh’s performance in the previous match. Bangladesh are a well-established cricket team coming off a fantastic win over Australia, but complacency may have gotten the better of them in their first meeting.
Bangladesh is currently third on the points table and will desperately need to win this one if they do not want to exit the tournament early. The margin of their loss in their first match does not accurately reflect how bad they were in that game.
The upcoming match is an opportunity for Bangladesh not only to stay in the hunt, but also to fine-tune their playing eleven combinations. They looked good with the ball for the most part of the inning, but they would definitely want to shuffle some things around in terms of batting. Soumya Sarkar is expected to miss this game, and Mohammad Naim will take his place. Aside from that change, Bangladesh will most likely field the same team.
Overall, Bangladesh has some flaws, but those can be mitigated if their experienced players contribute more effectively. Bangladesh demonstrated a lack of execution skills during critical moments and will need to do much better in the future. If they can accomplish that, Oman will have their work cut out for them.
Bangladesh T20 Squad
Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Naim, Nasum Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Shamim Hossain
Predicted XI: Mahmudullah (c), Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman
Oman vs Bangladesh Toss Prediction
Two games have been played at this venue, and in both of them, teams struggled to get their scoreboards moving. It is a difficult surface to set up a score on, and run chases have been easy, so the team that wins the toss will prefer to bowl first on this wicket.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The surface at Al Amerat Cricket Ground is generally suitable for batting. The outfield is quick in this area, allowing for easy boundary scoring. Fast bowlers may have a nightmare on this surface due to the lack of assistance. Spinners have a good track record here because the slowness of the track helps them.
There are forecasts for clear skies over Al Amerat, as well as a warm evening. With spinners having a field day on this wicket, batsmen need to get their eyes set in if they want to score runs. In this game, the team batting first would be content with 165 runs or more.
Oman vs Bangladesh Match Prediction
Oman comes in with a big win, which boosts their confidence. However, there are some concerns about their middle-order formation that were not revealed in the previous game. In this game, they are likely to face a more difficult opponent in Bangladesh. Bangladesh must execute its batting strategy effectively and will require contributions from the top. They are a strong team, and as such, they are the favourites to win this game.
Bangladesh is the favorites to beat Oman at the odds of 1.22.
