Incessant rain ends Netherlands hopes, Oman go top of Group A
Netherlands v Oman
No Result (abandoned with a toss)
Seventh Match, Group A ICC World Twenty20, Dharamsala
Oman have moved to the top of Group A while Netherlands’s chances for qualification were ended due to continuous and heavy rain which led to the abandonment of seventh match of the first round in the ICC World Twenty20 in Nagpur.
Oman opted to field first after winning the toss which was delayed due to rain. Five minutes ahead of the start of play, the skies opened up once again delaying the game.
For over an hour, the rain refused to relent. The umpires conducted an inspection at 16:30 local time and with no improvement in the conditions, the game was called off 20 minutes later.
Netherlands and Oman shared a point each. Oman jumped to the top of Group A, while Netherlands have crashed out of the tournament.
