The surface has some inconsistent pace and bounce and it gets tough to score runs once the ball is a little soft. Runs in the powerplay are very crucial as it will allow the team to rotate strike in middle overs and keep wickets in hand to go berserk in final few overs.

OMAN Team News

Oman suffered a defeat to Namibia in the fourth T20I. The bowlers had an off day as Namibia posted a score of 164-4 and later Oman batters failed to get over the line, scoring just 140 runs and losing the game by 24 runs. The series is tied 2-2 and the fifth T20I will decide the winner of the series.

OMAN Team Batting

Naseem Khushi, Aqib Ilyas and Jatinder Singh will be key batters. Khushi’s promotion at the top order has given the much needed boost to Oman batting. After scoring 66 in the third game, Naseem made 34 in 14 balls in the fourth T20I.  Jatinder is yet to get going but he is a key player of the side and will be eyeing a strong return. Aqib has got runs in every game but the big innings has not come yet. He needs to ensure he plays a big knock if set at the crease.

OMAN Team Bowling

Fayyaz Butt, Aqib Ilyas and Samay Srivastava can be backed as the team’s best bowler. Fayyaz did not play the fourth game but should be back in the fifth match. He has been the team’s best bowler in previous matches, taking 7 wickets. Aqib has also been good with the ball, taking three wickets in last two games while Samay bowled well in fourth game and bagged two wickets for 20 runs.

OMAN Team Form

Oman have been inconsistent in the series. They have won two games while lost the other two. The bowlers have done well but the batters have been a letdown.

NAM Team News

Namibia finally can breathe a sigh of relief as their batters returned to form. So far, the team struggled to get going because there were no contributions from main players but David Weise’s promotion at the top helped the team fix the batting woes.

NAM Team Batting

Gerhald Erasmus, JP Kotze and David Weise will be key for Namibia. Kotze and Weise made strong return to form with the bat and scored 78 and 51 in the fourth T20I. Erasmus is one of the team’s most consistent batters. He too has a fifty to his name in the series. The three batters would need to ride on momentum and play a big innings.

NAM Team Bowling

Ruben Trumpelmann, Ben Scholtz and David Wiese will hold the aces for Namibia with the ball. Trumpelmann has been brilliant, taking six wickets in four games. Ben Scholtz has taken just a wicket each in last two games but has bowled at a decent economy. Weise in the fourth T20I showed why he is the pillar of Namibia team and picked 3 wickets for 26 runs.

NAM Team Form

Namibia struggled with the form of their batters in first three games but Kotze, Weise’s return to form will be a big boost.

🏆 Oman vs Namibia Prediction

Namibia defeated Oman in the fourth T20I to keep the series. Namibia came into the series as favourites but the poor show by the batters saw them lose two games in a row. However, Kotze and Weise returned to form in previous game. The team also has Gerhald Erasmus, who too has scored a fifty in the series. For Oman, only Naseem Khushi has managed to score a few runs and one player alone can’t win games most times. For us, Namibia are favourites.
