OMAN vs BAH T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
Oman will take on Bahrain at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground, Muscat. Match 4 of the 2022 Desert Cup Series will get underway at 20:00 local time on Tuesday 15th November.
It was a very comfortable opening game of the tournament for Oman on Monday and they had no problems in brushing aside Saudi Arabia. After losing the toss, they restricted Saudi Arabia to 86-8 before knocking off the runs with 9.5 overs remaining.
Captain Jatinder Singh got the competition off to an excellent start for his team and from an individual perspective. He hit 50 not out from 28 balls and scored seven fours alongside one six. Although they will expect to win this game, Oman are likely to need more than the three batters used on Monday.
34 year old left-arm quick Bilal Khan was too fast and accurate for the Saudi Arabian batters and finished with figures of 3-20 and the Player of the Match Award. Although he may not get as many dismissals in this game, he certainly has the action and pace to be successful on this pitch again.
Oman have won three and lost three of their last six IT20s.
Although they ended up losing by four wickets to Canada, Bahrain put in a fine performance as underdogs in Monday evening’s fixture in Muscat. After losing the toss they posted 195-7 and had taken six Canadian wickets when they were beaten with four balls remaining.
On his IT20 debut, Sohail Ahmed produced the innings of the day on Monday and he looks likely to enjoy batting on this surface throughout the tournament. He scored 80 not out from 37 balls and looked to have taken Bahrain to a winnable total.
Another debutant, Rizwan Butt, caught the eye with the ball for Bahrain against Canada. He looked like a natural at this level after taking 3-29 from his four overs. Oman’s batters are just as good as Canada’s and it will require exceptionally disciplined bowling from Bahrain.
Bahrain have won none of their last six matches in this format.
