Toss Prediction : Bangladesh
Match Prediction : Bangladesh
Few could have seen the ICC World T20 getting off to such a strong start. Scotland’s victory against Bangladesh has certainly gotten the ball rolling, and all teams will be on their toes for the rest of the tournament. Bangladesh, on the other hand, is in a pickle and will do everything they can to defeat their opponents in their next match.
The next match in Group A of the ICC World T20 2021 will be between Oman and Bangladesh, and it will be a knockout match. On October 19, 2021, this match will be held at Al Amerat Cricket Stadium in Muscat, Oman.
With their victory over Papua New Guinea, Oman has firmly established themselves in the lead. They were aided by the familiar conditions, but it doesn’t detract from their outstanding performance in their first match.
Oman will be in business even if they lose this forthcoming match, based on the present scenario. However, a win here will be enough to advance them to the Super-12 round, which is just what they will be striving for, especially after witnessing Scotland overcome Bangladesh.
Oman’s victory in the first match was largely due to Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, and Zeeshan Maqsood’s outstanding efforts. The other bowlers performed admirably, but the fielding appeared to be lacking, which may be a disadvantage against a better-equipped opponent. In addition, Oman’s middle-order has yet to be challenged, so it will be intriguing to watch how they perform in high-pressure circumstances.
Overall, Oman has a competent team with a plenty of skill in its ranks. They made a few blunders in the first encounter, but they weren’t costly. They’ll want to reduce them and focus on what they did effectively in the first game. Bangladesh will have their job cut out for them if they are successful.
Bangladesh’s supporters will be outraged after their six-run loss to Scotland, and their disappointment is understandable given Bangladesh’s performance in the previous encounter. Bangladesh is a well-established cricket team that had just won a fantastic match against Australia, but complacency may have gotten the better of them in their first clash.
Bangladesh is now in third position on the points table and will need to win this game if they do not want to depart the tournament early. The margin of their loss in their first match does not tell the whole picture of how bad they were in that game.
Bangladesh never really recovered from the early losses of Soumya Sarkar and Liton Das, who were chasing a total of 141. Although Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim were able to put up a lovely relationship, they did so at a snail’s pace. In addition, the lack of intent throughout the rebuilding phase would be widely questioned by the supporters. Bangladesh would have lost the match by a larger margin if it hadn’t been for a bad final over Scotland.
Bangladesh had started off strongly with the ball and had Scotland on the mat with a score of 53 for 7. The bowlers, on the other hand, struggled late in the game, and it proved to be the difference between the two teams.
The forthcoming encounter will provide Bangladesh with an opportunity to not only stay in contention, but also to figure out their starting eleven combinations. They looked fine with the ball for the majority of the innings, but in terms of batting, they need to shake things up a bit. Soumya Sarkar is expected to miss this match and be replaced by Mohammad Naim. Aside from that, Bangladesh is set to field the same lineup.
Overall, Bangladesh has certain faults, but those flaws may be overlooked if its veteran players can contribute more effectively. Bangladesh showed that it lacked execution abilities when it mattered most, and it will have to do a lot better in the future. If they succeed, Oman will have their job cut out for them.
