Oman will take on Namibia in the ICC CWC League 2 at the Wanderers Cricket Ground on 27th November, Saturday.
Having ended up on the losing side in the previous game, Oman will be looking to bounce back in this encounter. When Oman won the toss and decided to field first, the bowlers did a decent job of restricting the opposition to a 228-run total. The batters failed to contribute, though, as the Oman side were bundled out for a 188-run total. The Oman batters need to step up and provide support to their bowlers.
Zeeshan Maqsood was the star with the ball in hand with figures of 3/30. Bilal Khan, Mohammad Nadeem, and Khawar Ali chipped in with 2 wickets each. Zeeshan Maqsood (90-ball 58) and Sandeep Goud (68-ball 50) were leaders of the pack with the bat in hand. Kashyap Prajapati and Aqib Ilyas made notable contributions with the bat but could not convert their starts.
Namibia, on the other hand, had a reasonably decent outing, despite having lost the toss. JJ Smit (60-ball 56) and Michael Van Lingen ( 48-ball 51) were the top scorers for Namibia. Craig Williams and Zane Green made notable contributions with the bat as they held the innings together and ensured there was no collapse in the innings.
Skipper JJ Smit claimed a fifer and was the wrecker in chief for the Namibian side. Ruben Trumpelman (2/50), Bernard Scholtz (1/26), and Pikky Ya France (1/21) were also crucial with the ball in hand and provided timely break-throughs.
The Namibian batters need to take on more responsibility than they are to repeat the feat once more. The Oman batters need to apply themselves and be patient in the middle.
