Bangladesh win toss, elect to bat first against Oman

Popular News

Bangladesh T20 skipper Mahmudullah won the toss and elected to bat first against co-hosts Oman in their second game of the Group B in the Twenty20 World Cup at Al Amerat Cricket Ground in Muscat on Tuesday.

The crucial game starts at 8 PM (Bangladesh Standard Time) and is being aired live on T Sports.

This second game was supposed to be Bangladesh's match to ensure their Super 12s berth with a match to spare but instead, they now face a battle of survival.

The shocking six-run defeat to Scotland in the first match put them in such miserable situation and changed the whole equation. A defeat against Oman would almost shatter their dream to play the Super 12s.

Bangladesh met Oman just once in this format in qualifying round match in 2016 T20 World Cup and won that game comprehensively by 54 runs through D/L method, thanks to a 63 ball-103 not out of Tamim Iqbal, who withdrew his name this time from the World Cup squad. That remains the only century for Bangladesh in this format.
