OMN vs BAN: Oman will go head-to-head against Bangladesh in a Group B fixture at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1), Oman for Match 6 of the T20 World Cup.
Bangladesh went up against Scotland in their opening game of the competition at the same venue as the upcoming fixture. Being asked to bat first, Scotland struggled their way to 140/7 as Bangladesh bowlers didn’t provide any chance for the Scottish batters to score. However, Chris Greaves top-scored with his 28-ball 45. For Bangladesh, Mahedi Hasan picked up a marvellous 3/19 in his four overs and Shakib Al Hasan bowled a brilliant four-over spell, picking up 2/17.
In reply, Bangladesh performed poorly with the bat and failed to chase down an easy total. They lost the game by 6 runs. Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored with 38 while Brad Wheal picked up 3/24. Chris Greaves picked up 2/19 in his three overs.
On the other hand, Oman played against PNG in their opening game and earned a massive win. Bowling first, the PNG batters fell prey to the likes of Zeeshan Maqsood who picked up 4/20. The only positive was Assad Vala scoring 56 off 43 balls to help PNG reach a below-par 129/9. In reply, a 131 run opening stand between Jatinder Singh (73*) & Aqib Ilyas (50*) gave Oman a comfortable 10 wicket win.
Oman are riding on a dominant victory, however, Bangladesh are a far more dangerous side which gives them the equal opportunity to win the upcoming game.

The wicket offers help to both the batters and bowlers. The pitch is one that will be of great help for spinners to get some turn off the surface. It will be a task for batsmen but once they’re settled, they’ll get the value for their shots.
There is no chance of precipitation throughout the course of the game. It’ll be hot and humid throughout the day with temperatures dropping marginally.
