In the final game, Zeeshan Maqsood’s team defeated Saudi Arabia by 7 wickets, putting an end to their two-game losing streak. In this game, they would face a formidable opponent in Bahrain. Bahrain’s batsmen have been annihilating bowling attacks, so their bowlers must bowl good lines.
Jatinder Singh and Kashyap Prajapati have opened the batting well, and the team would benefit from a strong start from this pair. For the side to succeed, Shoaib Khan, Rafiullah M, and Sandeep Goud must form partnerships in the middle order. For the team to succeed, Naseem Khushi, Sufyan Mehmood, and Bilal Khan must bat at the top of the order.
In this game, their bowling attack will be put to the test, and they will need good spells from Bilal Khan and Kaleemullah with the new ball. In the middle overs of the game, Rafiullah and Mohammad Nadeem must bowl tight lines. Maqssod, Goud, and Sufyan Mehmood must perform admirably in supporting roles.
Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Jatinder Singh, Kashyap Prajapati, Shoaib Khan, Sandeep Goud, Ayaan Khan, Mohammed Nadeem, Rafiullah, Sufyan Mahmood, Mohammed Naseem, Samay Shrivastav, Ahmed Fayyaz Butt, Bilal Khan, Kaleemullah
Possible Playing XI:
Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Kashyap Prajapati, Jatinder Singh, Shoaib Khan, Rafiullah, Sandeep Goud, Naseem Khushi (wk), Sufyan Mehmood, Bilal Khan, Kaleemullah, Mohammad Nadeem
Sarfaraz Ali’s team is doing well. The team won its third consecutive game of the season, defeating Canada by an innings and a half. This would be a special victory because they defeated the table toppers by a large margin. The team would like to win this game and move to the top of the points table.
In the previous game, David Mathias and Sarfaraz Ali combined for an 81-run outing. The two will look for something comparable here. Sohail Ali has been in excellent form and will look to add runs in the middle order alongside Ahmed Nasir and Haider Butt. In the lower middle order, Sathaiya Veerapathiran and Sachin Kumar will look to add quick runs.
Because their opponents have a strong batting lineup, Rizwan Butt and Imran Khan must bowl tight spells. Imran Anwar and Sathaiya Veerapathiran must be more aggressive in the middle overs. Mathias, Sachin Kumar, and Sarfaraz Ali must perform admirably in the supporting roles.
Sarfaraz Ali (c), Umer Imtiaz, David Mathias, Haider Ali, Veerapathiran Sathiayah, Sikder Al Mostasim Billa, Sachin Kumar, Shahid Mahmood, Imran Khan, Ahmer Bin Nasir, Sohail Ahmed, Danish Jasnaik, Muhammad Rizwan, Abdul Majeed Malik, Imran Javed
Possible Playing XI:
Sarfaraz Ali (c), David Mathias, Ahmed Nasir (wk), Sohail Ahmed, Haider Butt, Sathaiya Veerapathiran, Sachin Kumar, Rizwan Butt, Imran Khan, Danish Jasnaik, Imran Anwar
Oman vs Bahrain Top Team Batsmen
In Match 7, Saudi Arabia needed 115 runs from 20 overs, and opener Jatinder Singh hit 35 runs from 24 balls, with number three batter Shoaib Khan making 36 not out from 27 balls. Oman’s batting has been a major strength in the tournament.
Both of Bahrain’s openers scored half-centuries in the win over Canada, with skipper Safaraz Ali scoring 56 runs off 26 balls before being run-out. David Mathias, the other opener, batted more patiently and finished unbeaten on 59. Both batters will come into this game with a positive attitude.
Oman vs Bahrain Top Team Bowlers
Five of Oman’s seven bowlers picked up at least one wicket in their last match, but it was slow left-arm orthodox bowler Zeeshan Maqsood who had the best figures. He only gave up 10 runs, took two wickets, and was named Player of the Match.
Rizwan Butt, a medium pacer, had an excellent match against Canada, returning figures of 3-25. He has eight wickets in four games this tournament and dismissed Aaron Johnson for a duck with the fourth ball of the innings on Thursday.
Oman vs Bahrain Toss Prediction
The dew factor would be a factor for both sides at the coin toss. Spinners find it difficult to bowl with a wet ball on this small ground. Most teams have so far preferred to chase here, so we expect the side that wins the toss to bat first.
Oman vs Bahrain Pitch Report
The Al Amerat Cricket Ground is a high-scoring venue where the batsmen benefit from the small size of the ground and the fast outfield. The pitch is ideal for batting and allows batsmen to play up. Fast bowlers have few options, but spinners can turn the ball and cause havoc.
On November 19, Sharjah on Al Amerat would have clear skies and a humid evening. Batting conditions would be favorable because the track has historically produced high scores. Batsmen can easily play the ball on the rise, so bowlers must use their variations effectively. To feel comfortable here, the team batting first would need to score more than 170 runs.
Oman vs Bahrain Prediction
