The Cricket World Cup League two is all set to see Namibia take on Oman once again. It’s a very important game and both teams would want to win this game.
Namibia are coming off a disappointing loss against the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Gerhard Erasmus-led side had allowed the opposition to get to 348 in the first innings. Post which, Namibia fell short of the target by 43 runs. Thus, they will have to address their bowling.
As far as Oman are concerned, they had defeated Namibia itself in their previous encounter. As a matter of fact, the Zeeshan Maqsood-led side have been absolutely sensational in the recent past. They are currently on top of the points table.
However, Namibia are languishing at the fifth spot. A win over Oman here can improve their situation. The stakes are high as both these teams would want to further solidify their position. Hence, this game promises to be an absolute cracker of a contest.
As the game is set to take place at the Dubai International Stadium, the conditions are expected to favour the batters. Although the ball might not come onto the bat early on, it is expected to get better as the game progresses. The team that wins the toss would want to bowl first.
