OMN vs BAH Dream11 Prediction: Oman and Bahrain get their Group A sortie underway today with the two sides squaring off for the first time.
The ACC qualifiers for the Asia Cup 2020 get underway starting today with 8 teams facing off against each other in the Western Region T20 for a shot at making it into the coveted competition. Broken up into groups of 4 apiece, the sides will be going at loggerheads in the group stages first proceeding which the semi-finals and showpiece final will take place.
Today’s opponents, Oman and Bahrain find themselves paired in Group A with the two beginning their sortie in the tournamnet by facing off against each other. For Oman, there is a very strong chance of making it into the ensuing round with the side clearly the most sublime unit out of Qatar, Maldives and Bahrain.
They showed why they are considered such stalwarts in the group in their travails at the CWC League 2 with the side pummelling USA by a healthy 92 runs in their closing tie of the three country series. It was a comprehensive performance, one which saw them rake up 276 while batting first before coming out with an ominous bowling performance to send USA back to the pavilion for just 184.
Pitch Conditions and Toss Prediction
Not the easiest of wickets for the batters, the surface is one where the ball stops, grips, turns and stays low with the spinner blatantly thriving in the second part of the tie. The team winning the toss will be looking to come out and set a target here given the way this surface declines in no time.
Probable Playing XI
A Kaleem, Jatinder Singh, S Ibrahim, Muhammed Naseem, Suraj Kumar, Zeeshan Maqsood, Aqib Ilyas, Khawar Ali, Kaleemullah, Muhammed Nadeem, Bilal Khan.
Fiaz Ahmed, A Uddin, I Javed, S Veerapathiran, M Sameer Fayyaz, A Khan, Imran Ali Butt, A Khan, A Sarfraz, J Niazi, A Malik.
5 Must have Players
Zeeshan Maqsood, Aqib Ilyas, Khawar Ali, Fiaz Ahmed and Jatinder Singh.
OMN vs BAH Dream11 Prediction
OMN vs BAH Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
With 58 runs in his previous outing, Imran Ali-Butt from Bahrain will be our pick as the wicket-keeper for this encounter. He’s someone capable of utilising the powerplay overs and providing his side a tearaway start to see us move in for him for the day.
OMN vs BAH Dream11 Batsmen
The 28 runs for Ammad Uddin in his previous tie see us move him for him along with Fiaz Ahmed from Bahrain. The two make a partnership capable of stringing together meaningful displays giving their ability to both keep their intent in check and open their arms with ease, players the side will bank on immensely in this fixture.
Elsewhere from the other side, the expansive strokeplay of opener Jatinder Sigh makes him a must have player for the outing.
OMN vs BAH Dream11 All-rounders
He’s going to be partnered up with Khawar Ali, someone who will not only come out to bat inside the field restrictions but will be handed over a few overs with the ball as well. Oman will also be represented by the duo of Khawar Ali and Aaqib llyas with both of them smashing 100s the last time they faced off against USA, knocks which eulogised their calibre with the bat.
Elsewhere from the opposition, Ahsan-Ullah Khan is picked up by us owing to his ability to come up with pivotal displays with both the bat and ball.
OMN vs BAH Dream11 Bowlers
Bilal Khan took up three wickets against USA to make the new ball operator an instant pick for us for this upcoming contest. With 46 runs in his last encounter, Aleem Kaleem offers a dual natured role as a player to see us bring him in as well from the side.
Akin to him is Muhammad Nadeem, someone who alongside his ability to disrupt batting units also has a knock of 69 in his kitty to see us rope him in as well from Oman as we opt for an entire trio of only players from the side over here.
Captain and vice-captain
Oman Bat First: Zeeshan will be our side’s captain while Ilyas is the vice-captain.
Bahrain Bat First: We’ll opt for Ilyas as our captain with Bilal coming in as the vice-captain. Singh will also leave our side with Anasim coming in instead.
