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

We are up to Match 20 of the 2024 T20 World Cup already and this game between Oman and Scotland on Sunday will take place in North Sound, Antigua. Oman are still looking for their first win of the tournament after two matches whereas Scotland have won one and lost one. Read on as we preview this match which gets underway at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at 15:00 local time on June 9th.

Sitting bottom of the table in Group B after two defeats from two games, Oman must win this match if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top two and progressing to the Super 8s. However, they have typically found Scotland too strong an opposition in previous head to heads. 

Scotland have performed well in both of their matches so far this tournament and after the no-result against England and the win over Namibia, they will expect this game to be an easier contest. They should have enough experience to come out on top.

Oman Team News & Playing 11

OMAN Team News

There were two changes for Oman after their opening game tie and subsequent defeat on a Super Over against Namibia. With this match at a new venue and with Oman unlikely to finish in the top two, there could be changes to the side.

OMAN Key Players

  • Aqib Ilyas- the 31 year old top order batting captain has hit over 1100 runs from his 49 innings in T20Is. He’ll be looking to make his 50th innings one to remember.
  • Ayaan Khan- the all-rounder has proved himself to be a useful player in T20 World Cup 2024 with figures of 1/12 against Namibia and hitting 36 against Australia.
  • Mehran Khan- the 37 year old right-arm medium fast bowler has had a tournament to remember so far and has already taken five wickets.
  • Bilal Khan- the opening bowler is a very reliable bowler who always seems to pop up with a wicket. He dismissed the dangerous Travis Head against Australia.

OMAN Team Form

If Oman fail to win this game it will be four matches in a row in this format that they have not got a victory.

Oman Predicted Playing 11

Kashyap Prajapati, Pratik Athavale (wk), Aqib Ilyas (c), Zeeshan Maqsood, Khalid Kail, Ayaan Khan, Shoaib Khan, Mehran Khan, Shakeel Ahmed, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan

Scotland Team News & Playing 11

SCO Team News

After there were only ten overs for the batters and nothing for the fielders and bowlers in their opening match against England, it was no surprise to see the same Scotland XI selected against Namibia. We expect to see the same players listed for this third match.

SCO Key Players

  • Michael Jones- the opener cleared the boundary with a six and three fours against Namibia. His role at the top of the order will be to go on the attack from the first ball.
  • Richie Berrington- the skipper played a big role in the pursuit of 156 in the last match and ended the game 47 not out from 35 balls.
  • Brad Wheal- after picking up a wicket from the third ball of the innings, he returned to dismiss David Wiese and Zane Green in the 18th over. He will be dangerous throughout this innings with the ball.
  • Brad Currie- although it was Wheal who got more wickets, and Michael Leask who took the Player of the Match Award, the left-arm medium bowler returned figures of 2/16 against Namibia.

SCO Team Form

Scotland have impressed so far in the tournament with the win against Namibia and their batting against England.

Scotland Predicted Playing 11

George Munsey, Michael Jones, Brandon McMullen, Richie Berrington (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Brad Wheal, Brad Currie

Who will win Oman vs Scotland Match?

Oman have competed in both of their matches so far in the tournament and are certainly a team to be taken seriously. However, Scotland are the more consistent at a higher level and we have them as the top team.

🏆 Oman vs Scotland Prediction

With Oman still looking for their first ever victory against Scotland, many would expect a one-sided contest in Antigua. However, Oman have already gone toe to toe with Namibia and caused Australia a few problems as well. Scotland have also impressed, and they will arrive with plenty of confidence. Our prediction is for Scotland to win a close contest.
