Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: World Cup League 2 - Oman vs Scotland - Match 48
The 48th ODI of the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 will take place between Oman and Scotland at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Muscat, Oman.
Current Form Oman:
Oman won their last match against PNG by 3 wickets.
Fielding first, Oman succeeded in restricting PNG for a low total of 150 in the first innings. Captain Assad Vala played well for his 62 off 78 balls but could not take the team to a safe total. Apart from him, the middle and lower middle simply failed to convert their starts. For Oman, Khawar Ali picked up 5 wickets for just 15 runs.
Chasing 150, Oman had a few hiccups and lost wickets at wrong times. However, with the persistence of the lower middle order, they successfully achieved the target in the 36th over with 3 wickets in hand. For Oman, Aqib Ilyas scored 56 off 77 deliveries.
Current Form Scotland:
Scotland won their last game against PNG by 4 wickets.
Batting first, PNG put on an above par total of 226 for 8 in 50 overs. Norman Vanua made 57 off 52 balls for his team. Chad Soper also remained unbeaten at 39 to take the team’s total past 220. The lower order of PNG showed great effort to make a match out of their poor start.
Chasing 226, Scotland lost Matthew Cross early on for a duck. Post his dismissal, Kyle Coetzer and Calum MacLeod tried to revive the innings with a very slow paced 2nd wicket partnership. MacLeod and Coetzer lost their wickets at wrong times and Scotland found themselves in a bit of bother. The last match hero Berrington also fell at a wrong time and at one point, Scotland were struggling at 167 for 6. This is when Michael Leask and Mark Watt combined together and smashed the PNG bowlers to all parts of the ground. They won the match for Scotland in the 49th over with 4 wickets in hand. Leask made a match winning 51 off just 34 balls.
