Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah won the toss and elected to bat vs Oman in his second match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Al Amarat Cricket Ground in Al Amrat on Tuesday. Both sides made one change in their lineups, with Mohamed Naeem replacing Soumya Sarkar in Bangladesh’s playing XI while Khawar Ali Fayaz was out for Butt for Oman. Bangladesh are coming off low on confidence in the game as they crashed out with an unexpected defeat against Scotland in their opening match of the tournament, while Oman began their campaign with a 10-wicket win over Papua New Guinea (PNG) . If Oman wins this match, they will cement their place in the Super 12 along with Scotland, who sit at the top of Group B. On the other hand it is a do or die match for Bangladesh as if they lose they cannot reach 4 points to compete with Scotland and Oman in the points table. The top two teams from both Group A and B will qualify for the Super 12. (live scorecard)
