Afghanistan vs Oman Preview


Afghanistan’s batters and bowlers are in better form than their Oman counterparts and should win this warmup match with ease. Afghanistan have played a lot more competitive cricket against top-class international opposition this year compared to Oman, who lost a T20 series 3-2 against Nambia in April without scoring above 150.

  • Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz has scored 70, 121, 51, 23 & 39 in his last 8 innings.

Head-to-Head


Afghanistan have won two of their last five matches against Oman, while Oman have claimed one win. The sides also played out a thrilling tie, but their last match was abandoned due to the weather.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan’s last T20I was in a three-match series against Ireland in March, which they won 2-1. 

They clinched the series with a 10-run win in the third T20I, with Afghanistan scoring a competitive 155/7 off their 20 overs. Ibrahim Zadran top-scored with 72* off 51 balls.

Ireland were rolled out for 98 off 17.2 overs thanks to a terrific bowling display from Naveen-ul-Haq (3/10, econ 4.28) and Azmatullah Omarzai (4/9, econ 2.25).

Afghanistan Team News


Afghanistan are in good form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.

Oman Form


Oman completed a well-paced win over Papua New Guinea in their World Cup warmup match at Tarouba.

Aqib Ilyas (3/22) knocked over the PNG middle-order as Oman restricted them to 137/9 off their 20 overs.  

Oman recovered from 15/2 thanks to a 54-run third-wicket stand between Khalid Kail (27) and Zeeshan Maqsood (45), as Oman reached their target with three wickets and five balls to spare.

Oman Team News


Oman comes into the World Cup on the back of losing in the final of the ACC Men’s Premier Cup against the UAE, having won their five group matches.

Verdict

I am backing Afghanistan to win. I am also backing Ibrahim Zadran to top score for Afghanistan.

Zeeshan Maqsood is a good bet to top score for Oman.
