Namibia vs Oman Match Prediction

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

Match 3 of the 2024 T20 World Cup sees Namibia take on Oman at 20:30 local time on Sunday evening. Namibia qualified for the 2022 tournament but did not get through the first round whereas this will be Oman’s third ever appearance in the competition after 2016 and 2021. The game begins at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados on Sunday 2nd June.

There are six new faces in the Namibia squad with nine players keeping their places from the 2022 T20 World Cup. It remains to be seen if this mixture of youth and experience will be enough to get out of a tough group but Namibia should be strong enough to win this match.

Oman had a strong ACC Men’s Premier Cup which saw them reach the final before being beaten by the UAE in April and they have developed into a handy international side, particularly in T20Is. However, they were outplayed in their last series against Namibia.

NAM vs OMAN Match Toss Prediction

Although the last T20I in Bridgetown was won by the chasing team the previous four T20Is at the venue were won by the team batting first. Therefore, we predict that both skippers will want to bat first if they win the toss.

NAM vs OMAN Pitch Report

The last T20I at this venue saw over 340 runs scored and 16 wickets fall. There will be good pace in the wicket for the quick bowlers to exploit and the spinners should also be able to get good bounce from the surface.

Barbados Weather Report

The temperature will be up at 28 degrees throughout this game and it will be very humid as well. There is a slight chance of some showers but they should not last long if they do arrive at all.

Namibia Team News & Playing 11

NAM Team News

After being drawn in a group which includes England and Australia, the chances of progressing to the Super 8s of T20 World Cup 2024 are very low for Namibia. However, they are a team who have plenty of experience at this level and we expect them to pick their strongest XI for this match.

NAM Key Players

  • Gerhard Erasmus- the skipper hit 64 not out from only 29 balls as well as taking 2/22 in the last head to head with Oman in early April.
  • JP Kotze- the top order batter is also a wicket-keeping option for the side but we expect him to play purely as an opener after he hit 48 runs from 37 balls in the last game with Oman.
  • David Wiese- the former South African all-rounder is a regular in the top T20 leagues across the globe and has the ability to win a match with both bat and ball.
  • Bernard Scholtz- the left-arm spinner will enjoy bowling on this pitch and will be looking forward to bowling at Oman after taking 4/20 in his last clash with them.

NAM Team Form

Namibia have won their last two T20Is and three of their last five.

Oman Team News & Playing 11

OMAN Team News

Just like their opponents, Oman have nine of the same faces from their last squad in a T20 World Cup but there has been a change of leadership with Zeeshan Maqsood no longer captain and Aqib Ilyas taking on the role. There are no injury worries ahead of this match.

OMAN Key Players

  • Aqib Ilyas- the 31 year old right-hander is likely to bat at number three in this side and is their most consistent batter. He is also a more than handy spin bowler.
  • Pratik Athavale- the 27 year old keeper-batter is a very useful middle order batter and he hit 49 in the ACC Final against UAE.
  • Bilal Khan- the left-arm pace bowler took 2/55 in the ACC Final and he should enjoy the conditions and the surface in Bridgetown on Sunday evening.
  • Zeeshan Maqsood- the experienced slow left-arm orthodox bowler needs two wickets to bring up 50 T20I dismissals. He bowls a very tight line and length.

OMAN Team Form

Oman were on an impressive winning streak in T20Is before their defeat against UAE in mid-April.

Who will win Namibia vs Oman Match?

Namibia are ranked six places above Oman and they were far too strong for them when the sides met a couple of months ago. Once again, we have Namibia as the top side ahead of this clash.

🏆 Namibia vs Oman Prediction

With the two sides, along with Scotland, in a group with England and Australia, the common thought is that the best they can hope for is third place but a win in this match will allow them to dream of a top two finish. We think Oman have a consistent and talented side but it is Namibia who have a bit more quality in all areas. We are backing Namibia to win.
