Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Oman T20I Series 2019 - Oman v Hong Kong
The 1st match of the Oman T20I Series 2019 will be played between Oman and Hong Kong at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Al Amarat in Oman.
Both Oman and Hong Kong have not been doing well in the T20 format of late. Oman have managed only one win in their last eight T20s, losing all the matches in their last quadrangular T20 series. Similarly, Hong Kong have been able to win only two of their last 11 T20s.
In the last five matches that Hong Kong have played, they have won two and lost three while Oman have lost all of their last five games. As far as the head to head encounters are concerned, Oman have had the upper hand over Hong Kong, winning four of the five T20s played between the two teams.
After Anshuman Rath decided to walk away from the Hong Kong team, Aizaz Khan has now been made the captain. The all-rounder has been instrumental for Hong Kong in the recent past and has 28 T20I wickets to his name.
Off spinner Ehsan Khan will also come in handy for the team. With the bat, opener Nizakat Khan is their best batsman and has scored 377 runs in T20s.
Zeeshan Maqsood and Jatinder Singh are the leading batsmen for Oman. In fact, Singh was their most successful batsman in the last quadrangular series. Bilal Khan will be the team's key bowler and already has 22 wickets in T20 cricket.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Oman- Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Naseem Khushi (wk), Jatinder Singh, Wasim Ali, Khurram Nawaz, Mohammad Nadeem, Sufyan Mehmood, Sandeep Goud, Mehran Khan, Fayyaz Butt, Bilal Khan
