Oman Vs Papua New Guinea – Team Oman Preview
Team Oman is the co-host of the T20 World Cup 2021 along with the United Arab Emirates. The players of the Oman team play only during the weekends because many of the players do their full-time jobs and so they get only two days of the week to play cricket. Despite that, the Oman players took much time as possible to play cricket and get ready for their second big event of the ICC.
Oman won against Hong Kong to qualify for the T20 World Cup 2021 and now they have the confidence of winning against the newcomers’ team like New Papua Guinea. After winning the T20 series against Mumbai by a 2-21 margin, Oman also played hard cricket in the fifty-over format. But unfortunately, they lost the ODI series and Oman also competed well against Sri Lanka before they turned up to this World T20 2021 tournament. Oman needs to play the qualifying matches well if the joint hosts of the T20 World Cup 2021 tournament aim to play the super 12 against the top teams of this ICC marquee event.
Oman Vs New Papua Guniea – Team Papua New Guniea Preview
Team Papua New Guinea will play a tournament for the first time in their cricketing history. PNG – Papua New Guinea has done well to qualify for the first round of the T20 World Cup 2021 event. But as the newcomers, they will have to find their feet in the tournament pretty quickly because other experienced teams like Scotland, Oman, and Bangladesh can take this inexperienced lineup apart. PNG – Papua New Guniea needs to use the experience which they have gained by being in Oman from early September.
New Papua Guinea has a good team, but their inexperience in pressure cooker situations of an ICC event might cost them a bit. This is a good platform for the New Papua Guinea side to build the experience that is needed to win matches in tournaments like T20 World Cup 2021. Papua Guniea’s side has played eight One Day International matches and the games of the world division league two.
The newcomers also had a good preparation and the idea of the wickets in Oman by playing the warm-up match before the start of the T20 World Cup 2021. New Papua Guniea had lost their warm-up encounters against Sri Lanka and Ireland. New Papua Guinea also ran close to Namibia. But they also that match by 14 runs. Now Papua Guniea team will not want to repeat these types of performances in round one of the qualifiers.
