Scotland vs Oman Probable XIs
A century from Richie Berrington (114* off 127 balls) helped them score 284 in their 50 overs against Papua New Guinea. He was well-supported by George Munsey (79* off 62 balls). Gavin Main starred with the ball as he picked up four wickets and helped his side defend the total successfully.
These players will be the most crucial in the match against Oman also. Calum MacLeod and Kyle Coetzer are also likely to play a big part.
In their last match, contributions from Jatinder Singh (74) and Shoaib Khan (86) helped them post 265 on the board against Namibia. Bilal Khan and Kaleemullah picked up two wickets apiece but the other bowlers failed to get any as they were unsuccessful in defending the total.
Still, their team has been quite good in the tournament so far and they are unlikely to make many changes.
