Group B just got a whole lot more interesting after Scotland’s magnificent comeback victory over Bangladesh two nights ago. The result has now significantly raised the pressure on the sixth-ranked T20I team, who came into the World Cup on the back of home series wins against Australia and New Zealand.

However, did those series wins give Bangladesh a false sense of security? Shakib Al Hasan, before the New Zealand series, did call for “better pitches” at home, which didn’t materialise. As a result, the Tigers looked a little shocked away from their own den, struggling in their chase of 141 against the Scots – a score they should never have allowed them to reach after restricting them to 53/6.

All of a sudden, Bangladesh face a must-win game on a surface that is vastly different to those dished up at Mirpur. And, there is the added pressure of facing motivated hosts Oman, who are coming off a convincing win against PNG courtesy of strong performances by Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh and skipper Zeeshan Maqsood.

However, the hosts will be seeking a significant improvement in their fielding if they want to challenge and beat Bangladesh today. The key will be staying in the game for as long as possible against an under-pressure opponent in what could be a very interesting contest. Could Oman seal progression through to the Super 12s, pending the result in the Scotland-PNG match? A huge opportunity awaits.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Aqib Ilyas is enjoying a dream run of form. The right-hander struck scores of 59 vs Sri Lanka, 30 vs Namibia and 78 vs Netherlands in the leadup to the World Cup, before a solid 50* vs PNG.
  • Jatinder Singh’s 42-ball 73* against PNG could not have come at a better time. Oman’s premier batsman was enduring a poor run of form before the first match (7, 5, 8, 1).
  • Jatinder top-scored with 25 off 20 balls against Bangladesh in 2016. Also, his 300 runs at this ground come at an average of 37.50.
  • Zeeshan Maqsood will have a key role to play with bat and ball. The Oman skipper was outstanding vs PNG, taking three wickets in an over to turn the match (he finished with 4/20). He scored a duck in his only T20I vs Bangladesh, back in 2016.
  • Khawar Ali has both the second-most runs (601, avg. 20.72) and wickets (35, avg. 16.85) for his country. He took 1/24 and scored 8 in his T20I vs Bangladesh to date.
  • Bilal Khan was the bowler who held his own against Bangladesh in 2016. The Tigers scored 180/2, but Bilal was economical conceding just 16 in his four overs.
  • The left-armer is the joint sixth-fastest to 50 T20I wickets (level with Dale Steyn). He is coming off a solid outing vs PNG, taking 2/16 including a maiden.


  • Shakib Al Hasan’s struggle against Scotland was costly. He is striking at just 100.93 in 12 T20I innings in 2021, so this is an important innings for he and Bangladesh.
  • Shakib dominated Oman with the ball in their meeting five years ago, taking 4/15. He scored 17* off nine balls in the same game.
  • Can Liton Das finally shift from being talented to consistent? He scored a 33-ball 53 for the Bangladeshis XI against Oman A in a warm up T20 11 days ago. Mohammad Naim scored 63 off 53 balls in the same game.
  • Eyes will be on Mushfiqur Rahim, who, along with Shakib, took too long to settle against Scotland. His two sixes over midwicket looked to get him going, and Bangladesh needs their experienced man to deliver here.
  • Mahmudullah has the second-most runs for Bangladesh in T20Is this year (319, avg. 24.53, SR 101.91), including some crucial knocks for his team. He will be important as a finisher.
  • Mahedi Hasan is coming off a superb display against Scotland. The spinner took 3/19, and he will be key in building wicket-taking pressure today.
  • Mustafizur Rahman has the most wickets for Bangladesh in T20Is in 2021, with 20 in 12 matches at an average of 12.95 and economy rate of 5.97. This includes 2/32 vs Scotland, where he took two wickets in the death overs. However, he will be seeking an improvement to his execution in this period.

Stats and Facts

  • Bangladesh (180/2) beat Oman (65/9) comfortably by 54 runs (D/L method) in the same stage of the 2016 T20 World Cup. Tamim Iqbal was the star with a century, but he is not available now.
  • Nurual Hasan smashed a 15-ball 49* against Oman A 11 days ago.
  • If Scotland and Oman win today, Bangladesh will be out of the tournament before their match against PNG.

Possible Playing 11

Oman should stick with the same XI that beat PNG.

Oman: 1. Aqib Ilyas, 2. Jatinder Singh, 3. Khawar Ali, 4. Zeeshan Maqsood (c), 5. Kashyap Prajapati, 6. Naseem Khushi (wk), 7. Mohammad Nadeem, 8. Ayaan Khan, 9. Sandeep Goud, 10. Kaleemullah, 11. Bilal Khan

Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo said that Soumya Sarkar was picked over Mohammad Naim against Scotland due to the fact he offers a bowling option in the dew. It remains to be seen if they choose Soumya again, who continues to underwhelm.

Bangladesh: 1. Mohammad Naim/Soumya Sarkar, 2. Liton Das, 3. Shakib Al Hasan, 4. Mushfiqur Rahim, 5. Mahmudullah (c), 6. Afif Hossain, 7. Nurul Hasan (wk), 8. Mahedi Hasan, 9. Mohammad Saifuddin, 10. Taskin Ahmed, 11. Mustafizur Rahman

Al Amerat Pitch Report and Weather

It was an easy-paced surface on day one of the T20 World Cup on Sunday, but Bangladesh struggled to get going. Runs were on offer for batsmen willing to play the percentages. Expect more of the same today.

The forecast is for warm and clear weather, but dew could be a factor.

Match Prediction

It would be one of the most extraordinary failures in Bangladesh cricket if they fail to qualify for the Super 12s. Given the experience they possess, they should have enough to win today.
