Netherlands have never lost to Oman in the T20 format - they have won both their completed encounters against them.
Netherlands lost its match against Nepal after failing to defend 17 runs in its last over
Netherlands will be playing under a lot of pressure after having suffered defeats in their first two matches of the series.
Oman will be eyeing their third straight win of the tournament when they take on the Netherlands. This eighth fixture of the Oman pentangular T20 international series 2019 will be played on October 9 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1) in Al Amarat. Live telecast of the match is scheduled to begin at 1:30 PM local time.
Oman are having a good time in this series. They have won their first two matches and that too in quite a convincing manner to grab the top spot on the points table. They beat Hong Kong by seven wickets in their opening game before securing a 43-run win over Ireland last time out. Netherlands, on the other hand, have had a disappointing tournament so far. They are yet to register a win and have faced defeats in their first two encounters - against Ireland by six wickets and last time against Nepal by four wickets. It will be interesting to see whether the Dutch will crumble under pressure or bounce back to keep themselves afloat in the series.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Oman is not going to throw up any surprises when it comes to the weather. It is going to continue being hot and dry for the duration of this tournament. The pitch is also very predictable in its nature. The batsmen can take advantage of the flat deck but will not have much pace to work with. The spinners can be tough to score against.
We think that the Netherlands is going to be able to get the better of Oman in this match, although, the match is not likely to be one-sided.
Bet on the Netherlands to win.
