OMA vs UAE Team Previews


Not many expected Oman to perform well in their opening fixture, especially as they faced a much more experienced Irish team on a challenging surface. However, Oman played some excellent cricket, not only going on to win the match but also working up a decent NRR. A win here will greatly improve the team’s chances of advancing to the next stage.

The top-order batting looks to be in good shape for Oman. 3 of its top 4 batsmen went on to score half-centuries in the opening game and that should give them plenty of confidence. Kashyap Prajapati and Jatinder Singh will be looking to give the team a good start here.

Aaqib Ilyas, Shoaib Khan, and Naseem Khushi will play an important role in the middle order. Oman has a couple of good all-rounders in the form of Zeeshan Maqsood, Aayan Khan, and Mohammad Nadeem, all of whom are capable of batting well during the middle overs.

Coming to the bowling, Bilal Khan and Fayyaz Butt are likely to open the proceedings with the new ball. Both of them picked up 2 wickets each in the last match and are in good form. They will be supported by Mohammad Nadeem, while Jay Odedra, Aayan Khan, and Zeeshan Maqsood make up the spin attack.

United Arab Emirates

UAE had a tough opening fixture as they were slated to play against the mighty Sri Lankans, and expectedly, they lost the game. However, it is the huge margin of loss that will hurt them the most as UAE will find it very difficult to recover their NRR.

Muhammad Waseem and Vriitya Aravind will be the key batsmen for UAE at the top of the order. Both of them have shown good form in the build-up to this tournament and the team will be hoping that they can carry on with the form here. Asif Khan and Rameez Shahzad will come lower down the order and look to stabilize the innings during the middle overs.

UAE has some experienced all-rounders in the team like Basil Hameed, Rohan Mustafa, and Ali Naseer, who can play a pivotal role with the bat as well as the ball. The bowling wasn’t up to the mark in the last match and there will be plenty to improve here. Zahoor Khan and Jawadullah are their primary seam bowlers, while Karthik Meiyappan is the specialist spinner on the team.

For the rest of the overs, UAE will have to rely on the all-rounders to bowl well.

Pitch and Conditions

The surface at the Bulawayo Athletic Club is well-balanced, providing equal opportunities to the batsmen as well as the bowlers. There will be some movement for the seam bowlers early on in the game, but the pitch will settle down as the match progresses and will become easier to bat on. A score of around 280 is a par score here. The weather will be clear with temperatures of less than 25 degrees Celsius. 


OMA vs UAE Betting Tips

We think that Oman has the upper hand here. The win against Ireland should give them plenty of confidence and we can expect them to play well here. On the other hand, UAE suffered a massive defeat in their last match and might find it difficult to recover here.

Bet on Oman to win.
