Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 - Hong Kong v Oman

Nizakat Khan in action for Hong Kong

The 13th match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Hong Kong and Oman at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Oman seem to have hit a purple patch. First, they were unbeaten in the pentangular series hosted by the country and have now kicked off their ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 campaign on a winning note with a 7-wicket victory over UAE.

The team first folded up UAE for 108 runs with three wickets each from Bilal Khan and Fayyaz Butt. The two bowled tight line and lengths and conceded runs at less than 6 runs per over.

Despite opener Khawar Ali being dismissed for nought, the bulk of the scoring was done by Aqib Ilyas and Aamir Kaleem in the middle order. The team chased down the target with relative ease with 10 balls remaining.

Their opponents for this match, Hong Kong had a contrasting start. Courtesy of a 54-ball 79 from Kinchit Shah and late contributions from Haroon Arshad and Simrandeep Singh, Hong Kong posted 153 runs on the board which was a decent total.

However, the way Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie batted, they did not allow the Hong Kong bowlers to settle in. Skipper Aizaz Khan looked the most impressive but he did not get enough support from other bowlers as the team lost by 8 wickets.

Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:

Hong Kong- Aizaz Khan (c), Kinchit Shah (vc), Ahsan Abbasi, Haroon Arshed, Waqas Barkat, Aarush Bhagwat, Kyle Christie, Mohammad Ghazanfar, Raag Kapur, Ehsan Khan, Nizakat Khan, Waqas Khan, Scott McKechnie (wk), Nasrulla Rana, Shahid Wasif

Oman- Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Aqib Ilyas (vc), Khawar Ali, Fayyaz Butt, Sandeep Goud, Aamir Kaleem, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Mehran Khan, Naseem Khushi, Suraj Kumar (wk), Sufyan Mehmood, Khurram Nawaz, Jay Odedra, Jatinder Singh
