Oman’s practice with the win against Mumbai
The Oman team was the last team to secure a place in the qualifying round. He won the T20 World Cup ticket by defeating Hong Kong. Oman recently defeated India’s home team Mumbai 2-1 in the 3-match T20 series. Oman also played 3 ODIs with Mumbai. In this he had to face defeat by 1-2.
Papua New Guinea’s team had come to Oman in September itself
On the other hand, the team of Papua New Guinea has also prepared well for this tournament. The team had already reached Oman in September and is well aware of the ground here.
Bangladesh and Scotland both contenders to qualify
The second match of the day will be played between Bangladesh and Scotland. From Group B, both these teams are considered to be contenders for qualifying for the main group stage. In such a situation, this mutual competition between them can be very interesting. The road ahead will also become easier for the team that wins this match.
Bangladesh has performed brilliantly in T20 cricket recently. At their home grounds, they defeated Australia 4–1 in the five-match series. After this, New Zealand has been defeated 3-2 in the 5-match series.
