Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Oman vs Nepal – ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 – 2nd ODI
The 2nd ODI of the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 will take place between Oman and Nepal at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Muscat, Oman.
Current Form Nepal:
Nepal beat USA in their first game of the ICC World Cricket League 2 by 5 wickets.
Bowling first, Nepal restricted USA at 230 for 9 in 50 overs. For USA, Monank Patel was the standout batter who made a well-deserved 100 off 114 balls. The middle order could not leave much impact and Patel was always running short of partners at the other end. For Nepal, Sandeep Lamichhane bowled a terrific spell of 10 overs, giving away just 35 runs and picking up 2 important wickets. Sushan Bhari also bowled well and picked up 2 wickets for 31 runs.
Chasing 230, Nepal got off to a good start as the opening pair added 66 runs for the first wicket partnership. Kushal Bhurtel played a fantastic innings of 84 in just 93 balls. Nepal looked comfortable in the middle overs as Rohit Kumar Paudel along with Binod Bhandari slowly approached towards the target. Both the batters put their foot on the accelerator when the time came and Nepal comfortably reached the target with 1 over to spare and 5 wickets in hand. Paudel made an unbeaten 62 to take his team home.
Current Form Oman:
Oman lost the recently conducted 4 match series against the visiting Mumbai side by a margin of 3-1. However, a few of their players performed very well and the series served a great practice ground for the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2.
In their last 2 encounters against Nepal, Oman have come out trumps both times. Oman look very strong on their home ground and Nepal will have to come out with their A game to beat the home side.
