OMN vs SCO Dream11 Prediction | 1st ODI Match
Date & Time – 19th Feb | 11:00 AM IST
Oman and Scotland will go at each other again in a space of few days, but this time the format will be different. Scotland, who defeated Oman in the last T-20 match of the 6 match series to clinch it, will be looking to continue their victorious trend against the hosts. The 1st One Day International of the 3 match series will be played at Al Almarat Cricket Ground in Oman.
A clash of two teams at the two opposite ends of the spectrum
The Quadrangular T-20 series hosted by Oman, participated by Oman, Netherlands, Ireland and Scotland, saw every single team turn victorious at least once, except for Oman. The hosts were first beaten by Ireland by 15 runs, before they were battered by the Netherlands by 8 wickets. In the final game of the tournament, Scotland defeated Oman by 7 wickets to mark their third defeat in as many matches.
Scotland, on the other hand, started their campaign with a stutter when the Netherlands overcame them in their win by 7 wickets. However, the defeat seemed to have sent a spark in the engine for the Scots, who won both of their remaining games against Ireland and Oman to seal the title. Scotland defeated familiar foes Ireland by 6 wickets and then Oman by 7 wickets.
Scotland could expose budding Oman in the 50 over format
If the T-20 series ignominy wasn’t enough for Oman, the one-day series could turn even more ugly for them. The hosts were well beaten in the shortest format of cricket and their struggles could get even worse going into more elaborated formats of the game. Even though Scotland, themselves, aren’t the most experienced One Day International side, they are still much better when compared to budding Oman.
However, Oman should go into the series with a clean slate knowing they have nothing to lose and try to learn as much as possible. No one expects the hosts to conjure a win against Scotland and, thus, the lack of pressure should help their game.
