OMAN Team News
Zeeshan Maqsood is set to lead Oman’s 18-man squad for this T20 international series. Naseem Khushi is likely to keep wickets and could open alongside Maqsood. Fayyaz Butt and Bilal Khan are expected to be given the new balls.
OMAN Key Players
Zeeshan Maqsood: He has scored the most runs for Oman in the game’s twenty-over format – 368 runs in 16 matches. The left-handed batsman will be captaining the team and will be expected to lead from the front.
Bilal Khan: The left-arm pacer will pose the biggest threat to the Hong Kong batsman. He is Oman’s leading wicket-taker in the format with 22 wickets which includes one four-wicket haul.
Jatinder Singh: He will be another key batsman for Oman at the top of the order. Jatinder was the best performer with the bat for his team in the quadrangular T20I series played at home earlier this year in February.
OMAN Recent Form
Oman have not been doing too well in the game’s twenty-over format. They have managed to muster only one win from their last eight T20 internationals. Oman’s most recent T20I assignment came in February – a quadrangular series where they lost all their three fixtures.
Oman Predicted Playing 11

HK Recent Form
Hong Kong have struggled to win games in T20 cricket in recent times. They have lost nine of their last eleven matches in the 20-over format. Their most recent T20I series came back in the UAE in 2017 at the Desert T20 Challenge where they lost two of their three matches.

Oman vs Hong Kong Prediction
Hong Kong are a decent looking team with a few good all-rounders in the side. However, they have not been performing up to the mark in T20 cricket and they will have to bring their A-game into play if they are to beat Oman who have the home advantage in their favor. Oman have fared very well against Hong Kong in this format and have beaten them four times out of five. The hosts have the upper hand going into this game and we are backing them to win here.
