England vs Oman Match Prediction

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

Match 28 of the 2024 T20 World Cup sees England, the 2022 T20 World Cup champions, take on Oman in North Sound, Antigua. England have had one no-result and one defeat whereas Oman have lost a Super Over before being beaten by Australia and Scotland. Read on as we preview this game which gets underway at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at 15:00 local time on Thursday 13th June.

Although England have completed only one match which they lost against Australia, they also bowled unconvincingly against Scotland in their opening game before it finished as a no-result. They have not been at their best but Oman should provide them with an opportunity to get up and running in the tournament.

Oman began the tournament running Namibia very close in their opening game but they have struggled to be competitive since with defeats against Australia and Scotland. We expect England to be far too strong for them with bat and ball.

ENG vs OMAN Match Toss Prediction

It is now five consecutive games at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium which have been won by the team fielding first. Therefore we predict that both sides will want to field first and chase in this game.

ENG vs OMAN Pitch Report

This is a good batting wicket in Antigua which offers some turn but also good carry. The top pace bowlers will take the pitch out of the equation and nail their yorkers or produce strong slower balls to be successful here at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. A par score will be over 180 in the first innings.

Antigua Weather Report

It will be warm and humid throughout this game on the island of Antigua. Expect high humidity levels throughout and there could be the odd interruption due to rain.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

After a 36 run defeat against Australia in Match 17, there is not much room for error left for England at this stage. Liam Livingstone’s place is under threat in the side with Sam Curran pushing him hard for that all-rounder spot at number seven.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler – The England keeper-batter has been in fine form across the 2024 Indian Premier League, the T20I series against Pakistan and then hit five fours and two sixes in the defeat against Australia.
  • Phil Salt – The hard-hitting right-handed opener scored his runs at a quicker rate than his opening partner in the last game and England will be looking to him to post more than his 37 against Australia.
  • Jofra Archer – The right-arm fast bowler has looked very good again at international level after his long lay off. He got the big wicket of Travis Head in the last game.
  • Adil Rashid – The spinner dismissed the dangerous Glenn Maxwell in the last match and should get plenty of assistance from the pitch in Antigua during this match.

ENG Team Form

England came into this tournament in good form but have not won either of their two matches in this T20 World Cup.

England Predicted Playing 11

Phil Salt, Jos Buttler (c) (wk), Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone / Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Oman Team News & Playing 11

OMAN Team News

All of the top three hit sixes against Scotland but Oman will be looking for more contributors with the bat in this game. They made two changes in the last clash with Naseem Khushi and Rafiullah coming in and we expect them to keep their place in this fixture.

OMAN Key Players

  • Pratik Athavale – The 27 year old keeper-batter struck five fours and two sixes against Scotland and we can expect him to look to take the attack to England’s batters.
  • Aqib Ilyas – The captain will play with aggression from number three and we can expect him to chip in with a few overs of spin as well, just as he did when he picked up a wicket from his four overs against Scotland.
  • Bilal Khan – The 37 year old left-arm medium fast bowler has picked up a wicket in each of the three games in this tournament and he always puts the ball in dangerous areas.
  • Ayaan Khan  – The all-rounder is a capable slow left-arm bowler but has also impressed with the bat after making 36 against Australia and 41 not out in the last match. 

OMAN Team Form

Oman came close to beating Namibia in their opening match but have now not won a T20I across their last four.

Oman Predicted Playing 11

Pratik Athavale (wk), Naseem Khushi, Aqib Ilyas (c), Zeeshan Maqsood, Khalid Kail, Ayaan Khan, Mehran Khan, Rafiullah, Shakeel Ahmed, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan

England vs Oman Head to Head

This is the first T20I game between England and Oman.

England vs Oman Betting Odds

Although the 2022 T20 World Cup winners England are yet to win a game in this tournament, they are heavy favourites to win at 1.03 with the bookies and Oman are underdogs at 14.00.

Who will win the England vs Oman Match?

England will feel that they are yet to really get their competition up and running yet but player for player they have a far stronger side and none of Oman’s players would get into England’s team.
