AUS vs OMAN Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Australia meet Oman for the first time in international cricket on Wednesday evening in Match 10 of the 2024 T20 World Cup in Bridgetown, Barbados. This is the opening game of the competition for Australia whereas Oman were beaten by Namibia courtesy of a Super Over in Match 3. Read on as we preview this Group B fixture. This match gets underway at the Kensington Oval at 20:30 local time on June 6th.

After winning the Cricket World Cup in India last November, Australia are now looking to hold both white-ball World Cup trophies and have a very strong squad. Tougher tests are to come in this tournament and we expect a comprehensive victory for Australia.

Oman came so close to getting off to a winning start against Namibia and it will be very hard for the squad to respond from a defeat like that. Up against one of the best and strongest sides in the competition, this could be a very tough evening for Oman.

AUS vs OMAN Match Toss Prediction

Batting first continues to be the choice of skippers at this venue in the T20 World Cup. It would be a big surprise if either captain chose to field first after calling correctly at the toss.

AUS vs OMAN Pitch Report

We saw some good carry for the pace bowlers in the overs before the rain arrived at the Kensington Oval on Tuesday evening and expect more of the same in this match. There was also some turn for the spinners but a par score is likely to be approaching 190 in this game.

Barbados Weather Report

Any cloud at the toss and the start of the game should have cleared by the halfway stage. It will be hot throughout with the temperature above 28 degrees across the evening.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

Under the captaincy of Mitchell Marsh, an attacking approach is expected from the Australian side at this T20 World Cup. Although some of their players like Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green have had injuries over recent months, there are no injury worries ahead of this match.

AUS Key Players

  • David Warner – The 37 year old is unlikely to represent Australia in any future World Cups in any formats and he will want to get off to a flying start in this tournament.
  • Travis Head – Although his side lost in the 2024 Indian Premier League final, the left-handed opener produced a series of incredible innings. He has been in exceptional form over the last 18 months.
  • Adam Zampa – The spinner is established as Australia’s top spinner in white ball cricket and we can expect him to give the ball plenty of flight in this match.
  • Pat Cummins – The big hitting bowler captains the side in ODIs and Test cricket but will enjoy returning to the ranks in this tournament. He is very consistent and bowls a length which is hard to attack.

AUS Team Form

Australia come into this game looking to make it four T20I victories in a row.

Australia Predicted Playing 11

OMAN Team News

With only four players making it into double figures against Namibia, and with the team collapsing from 68/4 to 109 all out, there could be a push for more batting down the order in this match. No injuries were reported after their defeat to Namibia.

OMAN Key Players

  • Aqib Ilyas – The captain very nearly led his side to victory against Namibia and he will be looking to inspire his team to a famous win in this his 50th T20I.
  • Khalid Kail – The 27 year old right-handed middle order batter impressed with 34 against Namibia and he is a very consistent performer at this level.
  • Bilal Khan – The experienced quick bowler took a wicket with the second ball of Namibia’s innings in Match 3. We expect him to swing the ball early in the innings again in this match.
  • Mehran Khan – After returning his best ever T20I figures in the last game, the 37 year old right-arm medium fast bowler will be looking for big name wickets in this game.

OMAN Team Form

After the tie and subsequent Super Over defeat, Oman have not won any of their last two T20Is.

Australia vs Oman Betting Odds

With such a wide gap in abilities, it is no surprise to see Australia at 1.02 to win. As for Oman, they are priced as a very long shot at 15.00.

Who will win the Australia vs Oman Match?

Australia may find this pitch is a little slower than some of the ones they are used to back home but overall they have a squad far superior to Oman. Australia are the top team ahead of Match 10.

🏆 Australia vs Oman Prediction

The early stages of T20 World Cups often produce fixtures like this where there is a huge disparity between the abilities between two teams. We can expect Oman to be workmanlike and to squeeze every bit of their talent out in this match. However, they are up against one of the best white ball international sides who will be looking to dominate from ball one. Our prediction is for Australia to win.
