The play off 2 of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Namibia and Oman at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

Oman would have directly qualified for the 2020 T20 World Cup had they won their last match against Jersey. However, the team lost by 14 runs and will now compete against Namibia in play off 2.

Chasing Jersey's target of 141, courtesy of 4 wickets from Mohammed Nadeem, Oman could only manage 127 from their 20 overs despite the half-century from skipper Zeeshan Maqsood and lost by 14 runs.

They ended the league stage at the second place in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup qualifier 2019 group B points table with 4 wins and 2 losses from six games.

On the other hand, Namibia won their last group stage match against Singapore by a massive margin of 87 runs to go ahead of Scotland at the 3rd spot in the group A leaderboard and make it to playoff 2. They have 4 wins and 2 losses from 6 games with eight points and a net run rate of + 1.080.

Jatinder Singh is the top run-scorer for Oman with 193 runs from 6 games at an average of almost 40 and a strike rate of close to 140. Khawar Ali has picked the most wickets for the team with 9 scalps from six games at an average of 13.2.

MG Erasmus is the highest run-scorer for Namibia and the fourth highest in the tournament with 198 runs from 6 games at an average of a shade under 50.

Jan Frylinck received the distinction of picking up most wickets in the league stage of the tournament with 14 wickets from 6 games at an average of under 10.
