Bangladesh to face Oman on the 6th Match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at 8 pm tonight.
Bangladesh vs Oman is looking increasingly like a knockout game in Group B, particularly after Scotland shocked Bangladesh on the opening day. Oman has already thrashed Papua New Guinea, so another victory gives them a significant lead in terms of net run rate.
Another loss can only mean an early departure for Bangladesh, which is the stuff of nightmares.
Their supporters around the world are already enraged after they went down by six runs against Scotland. It wasn't just the opposition or the margin of defeat, but how Bangladesh went down that stood out.Bangladesh are a well-established international squad with much superior infrastructure and playing experience than the other teams in this group.
Mohammad Naim will be called up, while Soumya Sarkar will most likely be released. Soumya was chosen ahead of Naim solely because he provided a sixth bowling option in case of dew, according to coach Russell Domingo.
Spinners are like gold on these kinds of surfaces. They will play a huge role in the middle overs of the game. Whoever plays the spinners well, will have more chances of winning this match. Anything close to 150 is a match-winning total on this wicket.
The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first.
