The 23th match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Oman and Nigeria at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi.

Oman are placed at the fourth spot in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup qualifiers 2019 Group B with two wins and one loss from three games. They are one of the strongest teams in their group alongside Ireland and have four points and a net run rate of -0.049.

Their opponents, Nigeria did not come into the tournament with a lot of backers and their performances till now have not inspired confidence either. The team has lost both of its matches badly which reflects in their net run rate of -2.975. It would be next to impossible for the team to bounce back from here on.

Aqib Ilyas has been the top-scorer for Oman with 90 runs from 3 games. He has the top score of unbeaten 45 and has scored at a strike rate of just over 100.

Fayyaz Butt has stood out among the bowlers with 5 wickets from three matches. Although he has been expensive, Butt is a wicket-taking option and has best match figures of 3-16.

Middle-order batsman Chimezie Onwuzulike has scored the most runs for Nigeria with 42 runs from two matches at a strike rate of 123. Abiodun Abioye has been their top bowler with three wickets from two games.

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

Nigeria- Daniel Ajekun, Leke Oyede, Vincent Adewoye, Joseph Adedeji, Isaac Okpe, Ademola Onikoyi, Chimezie Onwuzulike, Sulaimon Runsewe, Daniel Gim, Chima Akachukwu, Abiodun Abioye

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