Oman won its previous match against Namibia with a very impressive batting display and is now going to be taking on the United Arab Emirates in this next ICC World Cup League 2 match. UAE is a team that seems to have stagnated a bit in the last few years and it will need to really step up its game to get past Oman.
It is clear that Oman is the favorite to win at all cricket betting sites.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Oman vs UAE ICC World Cup Two. The match is going to be played at the Wanderers Cricket Ground, Windhoek on the 29th of November 2021.
OMN VS UAE TEAM PREVIEWS
Oman’s biggest strength is its batting strength and that was what allowed it to score 291 in the previous match. Kashyap, Illyas, Ayaan Khan, and a few others all scored runs. It can be argued that their best batsman, Jatindar Singh, did not even contribute and so the batting still has more left in the tank.
Oman’s biggest weakness is its bowling lineup. It almost failed to defend 291 against Namibia and eventually just managed to win by 10 runs. A spin-heavy bowling could struggle in the conditions but UAE might not have the batting to take advantage of that.
UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
UAE has some very good associate players but it appears as if they may have peaked a few years earlier. The replacement players have not quite come in and the team seems to be losing quality. Chirag Sure, Rohan Mustafa, and Ahmed Raza will need to lead from the front to give the UAE a chance in this match and the ones to follow.
The batting lineup appears to be a bit weak and lacking in power. We also think it does not have the depth that Oman does at the moment. On the bowling front, UAE is struggling with a lot of the same problems that Oman has. It’s bowling lineup is dominated by spinners and that may not translate very well in Namibia.
