Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Oman vs USA – ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 – 6th ODI
The 6th ODI of the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 will take place between Oman and USA at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Muscat, Oman.
Current Form Oman:
The in-form Oman side were beaten by Nepal in an emphatic fashion.
Batting first, Oman could only manage a modest total of 121 before getting bowled out. Apart from Zeeshan Maqsood who made 41 off 66 balls, no other batter showed any resistance to the spin web conspired by Sandeep Lamichhane and company. Lamichhane picked up 4 wickets for just 18 runs.
Nepal were aggressive in their approach during the chase. Asif Sheikh made a quick fire 40 while the captain Gyanendra Malla scored an unbeaten 52 runs to take Nepal home in the 19th over with 7 wickets in hand.
Current Form USA:
USA beat Nepal convincingly by 6 wickets in their last completed fixture.
Batting first, Nepal lost the opener Asif Sheikh early on in the innings. Post his dismissal, Gyanendra Malla and Kushal Bhurtel tried to revive the innings with their partnership of 51 runs for the 2nd wicket before Bhurtel was dismissed by Karima Gore. Rohit Kumar Paudel and Binod Bhandari also lost their wickets at wrong times.
Gyanendra Malla held one end together and partnered with Gulshan Jha for the 5th wicket to give hopes for a big total. However, there was a huge turnaround after the arrival of Saurabh Netravalkar into the attack. He took 4 quick wickets and Nepal went from 140 for 4 to 174 all out.
During the chase, USA lost Sushant Modani and Karima Gore early on in the innings. Both fell to the wily spin bowling of Sandeep Lamichhane. Steven Taylor as an opener played a fantastic knock of 92 in 63 balls to bail his team out from an early trouble. He struck a partnership of 97 runs for the 3rd wicket with Monank Patel to almost seal the game in USA’s favour. In the end, USA chased the target in the 30th over with 6 wickets in hand.
