Oman had a golden opportunity of making it directly to the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 if they had won against Jersey. But, the team lost by 14 runs in their last league match. They then had another opportunity against Namibia.
Oman were considered the favourites as well but their bowling first conceded 161 runs, with all their bowlers except Bilal Khan getting found out. Despite 41 from Khawar Ali, the team bundled up for 107 and conceded a 54-run defeat.
They will now get another chance against Hong Kong to make it count.
Hong Kong beat Nigeria in their last league match to make it to play off 4. Hong Kong bowled out Nigeria for just 81 runs on the back of two wickets each from skipper Aizaz Khan, Mohammad Ghazanfar and Waqas Barkat. 20s from Nizakat Khan and Kinchit Shah then ensured that the team chased down the total in a ridiculous 7.1 overs and won by a thumping margin.
Khawar Ali, Jatinder Singh and Aqib Ilyas are Oman's top batsmen while Aamir Kaleem is a big-hitting all-rounder who gives balance to the side. Bilal Khan will lead the team's bowling attack.
Hong Kong will look towards in Nizakat Khan, Aizaz Khan and Kinchit Shah to put runs on the board. Skipper Khan and Ghazanfar will be key with the ball.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Hong Kong- Nizakat Khan, Aizaz Khan, Kinchit Shah, Waqas Barkat, Simandeep Singh, Scott McKechnie, Haroon Arshad, Nasrulla Rana, Kyle Christie, Ehsan Khan, Mohammad Ghazanfar
Oman- Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Aqib Ilyas, Aamir Kaleem, Zeeshan Maqsood, Suraj Kumar, Sandeep Goud, Khurram Nawaz, Mohammad Nadeem, Fayyaz Butt, Bilal Khan
