OMN vs BAN Prediction: Two low-scoring one-sided games were played in the T20 World Cup yesterday. Curtis Campher’s hat-trick guaranteed the Netherlands’ total was below par, and Ireland won by seven wickets. Sri Lanka bowled Namibia out for 96 runs in the second game, and they chased it down with ease after a shaky start.
Hosts Oman now take on Bangladesh in match 6 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground in Muscat. Oman battered Papua New Guinea in the first game, winning by ten wickets. Bangladesh, on the other hand, were upset by Scotland as they lost by six runs.

OMN vs BAN Head to Head: Bangladesh have won the only encounter between the two sides.
OMN – 20%
BAN – 80%
Bangladesh will come out all guns blazing else they will be knocked out of the tournament at this early stage. The slow and turning pitch on offer today is much like the ones back in the subcontinent. Oman will take confidence from their opening day win but are facing an uphill task today. The betting sites also favor Bangladesh.
Bet365: OMN: 4.33; BAN: 1.22
Shakib Al Hasan is a must-have for your fantasy teams. The stylish all-rounder bowls stump to stump and bats at no.3. He has 1783 runs and 106 wickets in 77 matches.

At the Al Amerat cricket stadium, the pitch is sluggish and low, similar to what we saw in Sharjah during the IPL. It’s been difficult to get runs, but if batsmen get their eye in, they’ll be rewarded. On this terrain, the average score is 150. In a day game, the toss is unlikely to have an influence; nonetheless, teams may choose to chase.
If OMN bats first: 130-140
If BAN bats first: 150-160
The sun sets at Muscat at 5:36 PM local time. It will cool down a bit as night sets in. As the second match starts, the temperature is expected to be 30 degrees Celsius dropping to 29 degrees by the end of the match. Humidity percentage is expected to be in the fifties and it will feel like 33 degrees Celsius. The grassy ground will have temperatures lower than the ambient air and hence some dew is expected during the latter half of the match.
