The 23rd match of ICC T20 Qualifiers 2019 will feature a battle between Oman and Nigeria. Oman are currently at the fifth position on Group B points table, but a win in this fixture can take them to the top spot. On the other hand, Nigeria are yet to open their account in the tournament having lost both of its opening fixtures.
Oman had defeated the hosts, UAE on the opening day of the tournament and then they overcame the challenge from Hong Kong to win their second match. After losing their third match against Ireland, Oman will look to get their campaign back on track with a win here.
Nigeria have lost to Jersey and Canada in the ICC T20 Qualifiers so far.
Speaking of a player to watch out for, Oman will hope that Aqib Ilyas continues to score runs but at a better strike rate. The Nigerians will be looking to perform better as a batting uniy given none of their batsmen have crossed the 50-run-mark in the tournament.
In the bowling department, Oman will have their hopes high on Khawar Ali, while Nigeria will have their hopes centred around Abiodun Abioye.
