The 5th match of the Oman T20I Series 2019 will be played between Netherlands and Nepal at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Al Amarat in Oman.

Netherlands lost their first match of the Oman pentangular series against Ireland by 6 wickets. Their batting, though, performed well with each of Max ODowd, Ben Cooper, Colin Ackermann and Roelof van der Merwe making a contribution.

Ben Cooper scored a half-century at a healthy rate and helped the team to 167. Had it been for a better effort from their bowlers, Netherlands could have taken the match closer. Unfortunately for them, Roelof van der Merwe and Brandon Glover conceded runs at an average of more than 10.

This is why Ireland were successful in winning the match by 6 wickets in the 19th over. Shane Snater, as expected, was the most impressive bowler for Netherlands.

This will be Nepal's second match of the series. They would bank on skipper Paras Khadka, who averages almost 60 in his last eight matches, to put runs on the board. Sandeep Lamichhane and KC Karan will lead their bowling attack.

In the last five matches played between Nepal and Netherlands, the latter has won thrice while Nepal have won once. In their last completed game, Nepal beat Netherlands on their tour of Netherlands way back in 2015.

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

Netherlands- Tobias Visee, Scott Edwards, Max ODowd, Ben Cooper, Antonius Staal, Colin Ackermann, Pieter Seelaar, Roelof van der Merwe, Brandon Glover, Shane Snater, Paul van Meekeren

Nepal- Paras Khadka, Aarif Sheikh, Dipendra Singh Airee, Kushal Malla, Binod Bhandari, Pawan Sarraf, Abinash Bohara, Sushan Bhari, KC Karan, Sompal Kami, Sandeep Lamichhane
