Oman will be looking to continue their good run of form when they take on the Bahrain side in the 4th match of the Desert Cup T20 Series for 2022. The hosts for the tournament have made a good start in the competition and are going into this game on the back of a huge win against Saudi Arabia. Bahrain, on the other hand, was not so lucky as they went down to Canada even after putting up a good total on the board. Bahrain has lost its last 5 T20 games. Their bowling attack is letting them down pretty badly. Oman on the other hand is playing at home. So, all their players will be aware of the conditions on offer here. This is an added advantage to the Oman team. Although it is early days in the competition, it remains to be seen whether Bahrain can stage a comeback in the tourney.  

OMA vs BAHRAIN Team Previews


The Oman side is led by Zeeshan Maqsood and they have made a good start to the competition by winning the first game. They beat Saudi Arabia by a thumping margin of 9 wickets in a one-sided affair. The hosts were right on the money when they bowled against this relatively weaker opposition. Their batters also did not drop any sweat while chasing a small total. Maqsood will be looking to inspire his team with this victory as they take on a stronger opposition in their next fixture.

In their last game against Saudi Arabia, the Oman openers Kashyap Prajapati and Jatinder Singh were able to set up a huge partnership for the first wicket. The team management will be looking for another similar display from their openers. In the Oman middle order, they have good strong hitters such as Maqsood himself, Shoaib Khan, and Mohammad Nadeem. Lower down the order there are batters such as Naseem Khushi, Rafiullah M, and Ayaan Khan that are capable of scoring big runs for their side and quickly.

The Oman bowling attack was right on track in their last fixture against Saudi Arabia. They did an excellent job of containment. The Oman team will be looking for another such effort in the field from their bowlers such as Kaleemullah and Bilal Khan in particular. These two bowlers picked up 5 wickets between them in the last match and were mainly responsible for restricting the Saudi batting charge. Other bowlers such as Mohammad Nadeem and Rafiullah M also did a good job and used the conditions on offer well. These bowlers together with Samay Srivastava, Ayaan Khan, and Maqsood make for a strong bowling attack.

The Bahrain skipper Sarfaraz Ali will be upset with his bowling attack about the way they went about their business. They could not defend a big score set up by the Bahrain batters of 195 runs against the Canadian outfit. This 6-wicket loss would have hurt their team as their batters appeared to be in good form in their last match. As Bahrain is looking to take on the hosts Oman in this game, Ali would be keen to get more penetrative spells from his bowlers to harbor any hopes of winning the first match of the season.

The batting order for Bahrain will depend on the likes of Sarfaraz Ali and Umer Toor to score big runs in this match. These batters failed to make a mark in their last encounter. Other batsmen such as Sohail Ali and Imran Anwar played electrifying innings and this pair will be looking to add some crucial runs in the middle order in this game as well. These top batters will be supported by the likes of Haider Butt, David Mathias, and Ahmed Nasir lower down the order to build a bit of total for Bahrain.

The most crucial part for the Bahrain outfit is their bowling attack. It has to deliver a strong performance in this match. The Bahrain team will look for tight spells from bowlers such as Shahid Mahmood and Muhammad Rizwan with the new ball in hand. As far as the middle overs are concerned the onus will be on Imran Anwar and Sathaiya Veerpathiran to prevent the flow of runs. This bowling attack will be aided by the likes of skipper Sarfaraz Ali and Sachin Kumar who will be doing a support job for them.

This pitch is a flat one where the batters can just hit through the line and pick up easy runs.

OMA vs BAHRAIN Betting Tips

The Bahrain outfit will be worried about the form their bowlers are in at the moment. During the last year, this bowling attack has let their team down on numerous occasions.
