OMA vs CAN Team Previews


Oman is going into this game with a couple of wins under their belt in their last couple of matches. In their last match in the Desert Cup for 2022, Oman beat Bahrain by a huge margin of 106 runs. Batting first the Oman outfit managed to put together a massive total on the board. They scored 220 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in their effort. The player of the match Zeeshan Maqsood scored a brilliant hundred in this innings. He smashed 102 runs from just 44 balls with 9 sixes and 7 fours to help Oman in scoring an imposing total in their efforts.

There was plenty of support for Zeeshan Maqsood during his innings from different Omani players. Jatinder Singh scored 28 runs while opening the innings for Oman from 21 balls with 4 fours. Mohammad Nadeem scored 30 runs from 19 balls with 2 sixes. Rafiullah also contributed 25 runs from 14 balls with 3 sixes towards the end of the innings. The Bahrain innings got off to a decent start with David Mathias and Imran Anwar putting together a good partnership for the second wicket. Mathias scored 39 runs from 32 balls with 2 sixes and 2 fours.

However, after these two were dismissed, there was not much resistance from the rest of the batting order. Only Ahmed Bin Nisar scored 28 runs from 27 balls to take the Bahrain total past the 100-run mark. Eventually, the Bahrain team was bowled out for 114 runs in 16 overs. For the Oman team, the destroyer-in-chief was Samay Shrivastava who picked up 5 wickets for 18 runs from his 4 overs. Other bowlers that supported him well were Bilal Khan with 2 wickets from 3 overs for 4 runs and Rafiullah with 2 wickets from 3 overs for 21 runs. Sandeep Goud picked up the remaining scalp.

Canada played their last match against Saudi Arabia where they recorded a victory by 45 runs. Before going into this game, they had suffered the first loss in the competition at the hands of Bahrain by a solid margin of 8 wickets. The team was under a bit of pressure as they took on Saudi Arabia but did a fantastic job by pulling off yet another win and maintaining their top position in the points table. Batting first, Canada scored 171 runs for 6 wickets. Matthew Spoors was the top run-getter for Canada with 44 runs from an even number of balls.

Other batters that contributed to the Canadian cause included Harsh Thakur with a quickfire 37 runs from 19 balls with 3 sixes and 2 fours and Saad Bin Zafar with 25 runs from 11 balls with 5 fours. These batters took the score to respectability in the end. The Saudi Arabian innings got off to a wretched start with the top order collapsing under the bowling of the Canadian spearhead Ahmar Khalid who picked up 3 top wickets to restrict the Saudi Arabian batting charge right at the front. Ahmar Khalid ended up with figures of 4 for 17 from his 3 overs.

The middle order and lower middle order for Saudi Arabia did offer resistance with Saad Khan scoring 29 runs from 21 balls, Hisham Sheikh scoring 20 runs, Usman Najeeb scoring 19 runs, and Irfan Sarfaraz scoring 18 runs for Saudi Arabia. The Saudi batting line-up could score 126 for 8 from their stipulated quota of 20 overs. Kaleem Sana, Dillon Heyliger, and Nikhil Dutta picked up a wicket apiece to do a fantastic restriction job for Canada. The Canadian side will look to their openers to perform well in this game with Aaron Jones and Matthew Spoors.

Very few times during the competition had a team been successful in defending a total. But this fact has changed, and both these sides are going into this game with a successful defense from their last outing. However, all-in-all it has been observed that huge totals have been chased easily at the venue, and setting totals is pretty difficult. So, the side winning the toss may look to bowl first at the venue.

The venue of Al Amerat Cricket Ground has been a successful hunting ground for several batters. They can play their shots easily as the ball comes onto the bat nicely.

OMA vs CAN Betting Tips

This is likely to be a keenly fought affair as these two teams are placed at the top of the points table at the moment. Canada won the only encounter that took place between these two sides earlier in the competition. They have several batters that are in good form. However, the Canadian bowlers will have to display consistency to keep on winning matches from here on in the competition. They are up against a home side that is well aware of the conditions at the venue. Oman is also doing a good job in the competition and is placed one spot below Canada in the points tally. So, we expect Oman to win this game but nothing much in it.
