Oman and Papua New Guinea are going to kick off the T20 World Cup 2021 as they take on each other and attempt to make it to the Super 12 stage. Oman is hosting this first stage of the T20 World Cup and so it has a slight advantage over all other teams. Over the past few years, we have also seen Oman build up a solid set of players that have consistently beaten associate teams around the world.
While they go into this match as firm favorites, Papua New Guinea will be hoping to cause a flutter or two as well.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Oman vs Papua New Guinea T20 World Cup 2021. The match is going to be played at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground (Ministry Turf 1), Al Amerat, on the 17th of October 2021.
Oman is the home team and has been getting ready for the T20 World Cup with some quality matches against Sri Lanka. While Oman ended up losing those matches, they were indicative of the kind of challenge that they will pose to all the other teams. With Bangladesh and Scotland also in the group, Oman has a difficult task to qualify for the Super-12 but it is by no means impossible.
Zeeshan Maqsood is going to lead the bowling lineup with support from Fayaz Butt and Kaleemullah. Oman is not the strongest bowling attack but it did manage to push Sri Lanka in both the matches it played. We think it should have more than enough to be able to take down the PNG batting.
Jatinder Singh, Aqib Illyas, and Khurram Nawaz are the batsmen to keep an eye on. There is not too much quality in the batting lineup but almost everyone seens to be able to swing the bat and can chip in when needed.
Zeeshan Maqsood, Naseem Khushi, Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Aqib Ilyas, Mohammad Nadeem, Ayan Khan, Sandeep Goud, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Kashyap Harishabhai.
PNG may have qualified for the first stage of the T20 World Cup but even winning a single match for it in the Super-12 stage is going to be very difficult. It played two matches in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup 2021. One against Namibia and the other against Scotland, losing both of them quite convincingly.
The fact that it did not play any other cricket in 2021 and none at all in 2020 is going to count against it as well.
PNG just does not have the kind of quality or experience that other associate teams in this tournament do. Kiplin Dorigia and Assad Vala are two batsmen to watch out for while Jason Kila and Damien Ravu could pose some problems for Oman with the ball.
Overall, though, PNG has a team that is weaker than Oman in all respects.
Lega Siaka, Tony Ura, Assad Vala, Charles Amin, Sese Bau, Simon Atai, Norman Vanua, Kiplin Doriga, Damien Ravu, Kabua Morea, Nosaina Pokana.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Defending a total can be quite difficult on the small ground and chasing must be seen as a definite advantage.

The conditions are expected to be good for cricket, both weather-wise and the pitch. We saw a nice amount of pace and carry in the surface when Oman played Sri Lanka just a few days ago. That is not likely to change and we can expect more of the same in this match. A total of around 170 is quite easily on the cards especially if Oman bats first.
