The Oman T20 series is about to get under way and it has four exciting associate nations competing alongside Ireland, the only test playing nation in the group. The qualifiers for the T20 World Cup are on the minds of all these teams and getting match practice is the best way to sort out their squads for the upcoming matches.
The first match of the tournament is going to be played between the hosts Oman and Hong Kong.
Oman vs Hong Kong T20 match is going to be played at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1), Al Amerat, Oman on the 5th of October 2019.
Oman has been one of the bright spots in associate cricket over the last few years and the improvement in their cricket can be seen quite clearly. The government and the cricket association have been very generous with their funding of the game and this is something that is bound to have long term benefits for Oman cricket.
Some of the players to look out for in Oman’s cricket team are Mehran Khan, Khurram Nawaz, Jatinder Singh, and Aamir Kaleem in the batting department. Zeeshan Maqsood and Sufiyan Mahmood are the two players that are going to be leading the bowling attack for the home team.
The Oman side has a relatively stable squad that has gained enough experience to be considered cricket savvy. The side is also playing in home conditions, another big advantage.
Zeeshan Maqsood, Jatinder Singh, Suraj Kumar, Mohammad Nadeem, Fayyaz Butt, Khurram Nawaz, Bilal Khan, Aamir Kaleem, Aaqib Sulehri, Khawar Ali, Sandeep Goud.
Hong Kong was a rising star in the associate cricket world but then its best batsman, Mark Chapman, left for New Zealand. Now, the side has to play at its best to be able to compete in this competition.
There are still some very talented individuals in the Hong Kong side. Kinchit Shah, Nizakat Khan, Waqas Khan, and Scott McKechnie are some of the players that are going to need to be in prime form if Hing Kong has to stand a chance in Oman.
A couple of glaring weaknesses stand out for Hong Kong. The side does not have much batting depth and lacks a quality top-order. The bowling attack also does not have a spinner that the team can bank on.
In conditions like the ones they are going to experience in Oman, these are critical weaknesses that are difficult to overcome.

The weather forecast for Oman is for a sunny day and no rain in sight. The attention is going to be on the playing surface which is usually extremely flat and good for batting. The pace of the wicket is slow and the spinners are going to effective once the ball becomes older.
We think Oman is the team to back in this match since it has a stable squad that has done well in recent times. It also has home advantage on its side.
Bet on Oman to win.
