Bangladesh in an effort to get back on track against self-assured Oman. While Bangladesh was left with some tough questions about their batting. After Scotland lost them on the opening day of the ICC Men’s T20 WC 2021.
They have little time to get their campaign back on track, as Oman may lose on Tuesday. A respected cricket nation was knocked out of the tournament in the first round.
Down on the boundary, chewing dot balls, and lack of attacking method in both powerplay and death. They were only 25/2 in the powerplay. A period of play that is proving significant in matches in the region in recent weeks.
The team has won series against Zimbabwe, Australia, and New Zealand this year. However, will have to make a quick comeback of its own.

Oman will be wary of injured Tigers. With the co-hosts themselves riding high in front of the home crowd after an impressive 10-wicket win over PNG.
He made sure Sri Lanka didn’t get distracted in the practice games and will look to use all his learnings and preparation from the past few weeks against Bangladesh as well.
If they lead the high-ranked team by surprise, they will find themselves in a great position to win two and go into the Super 12. A loss would not be the end of their campaign, although Oman lost to Scotland in the 2019 Qualifier, and would not want to rely on a determination in the third match.
Bangladesh bowlers did a good job reducing Scotland to 53/6 and came in for praise for their captain. Spinners Mahedi Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan were particularly effective in drying up the runs and shared five wickets. However, due to the pressure of the opening pair, there may be some change in their batting order.
Probable Bangladesh Team XI:- Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah (captain), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman.
Probable Oman Team XI:- Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Aaqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, Kharwar Ali, Kashyap Prajapati, Naseem Khushi (wk), Mohammad Nadeem, Ayan Khan, Sandeep Gaur, Kalimullah, Bilal Khan
Jatinder Singh:- Oman opener scored the maximum runs for his side by scoring 73* in 42 balls against PNG. Four sixes were included in this innings. He is also good at sweep shots, so he has to work against Bangladesh’s spin attack.
Liton Das:- The Bangladesh opener has a particularly high strike rate in the powerplays, coming in at around 142 to match a career strike rate of 125 in all T20s. In the UAE, his team will expect him to take responsibility. If Bangladesh is keeping an eye on the run rate, then their role will also be important.
Shakib Al Hasan surpassed Lasith Malinga’s record to become the leading wicket-taker (108) in men’s T20Is at the time of the opening match of the group position of the 2021 T20 World Cup. The last time he played against Oman was in 2016, Shakib took four wickets and conceded just 15 runs.
Despite his failure against Scotland, he will continue to bat at the top of the order and can be approved for coming in good. The in-form Bangladesh all-rounder has picked up 16 wickets in 13 T20I innings this year at an economy of 6.1 and his all-around threat makes him the pinnacle captain for this match.
