The 16th match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Ireland and Oman at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi.

Ireland kicked off their campaign with a win against Hong Kong. Mark Adair first impressed with his disciplined bowling and picked up two wickets while conceding just 22 from his 4 overs to restrict Hong Kong to 153.

A 36-ball 62 from Paul Stirling and a 53-ball 70 from Andrew Balbirnie then ensured that Ireland chased down the target with almost three overs remaining.

Their next game was against United Arab Emirates where despite a 58-ball 72 from Paul Stirling, Ireland folded up for just 125. Their bowlers then tried to make a match of it, with Mark Adair standing out once again but the runs were just not enough as they lost by 5 wickets.

Oman started the tournament with a comprehensive 7-wicket win over UAE. Bilal Khan and Fayyaz Butt picked up three wickets each for Oman to skittle UAE for just 108.

It was hardly a stretch for Oman as they chased down the target comfortably, courtesy of a 45 from Aaqib Ilyas and a breezy 27 from Aamir Kaleem. Skipper Zeeshan Maqsood finished off the match in style with a six.

With the experience that they possess, Ireland will back themselves to win this game despite Oman's prolific form off late.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Ireland- Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Andrew Balbirnie, Harry Tector, Gary Wilson, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Boyd Rankin, David Delany, Shane Getkate

Oman- Khawar Ali, Aqib Ilyas, Aamir Kaleem, Zeeshan Maqsood, Suraj Kumar, Mohammad Nadeem, Sandeep Goud, Jatinder Singh, Fayyaz Butt, Khurram Nawaz, Bilal Khan
