Defending champions England (ENG) and Oman (OMA) cross swords in match 28 of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua, on Friday, June 14.

The defending champions are in a spot of bother after registering just one point from their first two matches. Their opening game against Scotland ended without a result as the two teams got one point each. England went on to lose their next game against traditional rivals Australia by 36 runs. The Aussies have already qualified for the Super Eight stage with three wins from as many matches. Meanwhile, Scotland are sitting at No. 2, with five points from three games. The Three Lions cannot afford a loss in their two remaining games against Oman and Namibia.

Meanwhile, Oman have not had a great campaign, losing all three of their matches so far. They have also been eliminated and will only play for pride on Friday. Saad Bin Zafar’s men would want to finish their campaign on a high.

Probable Best Performers

Probable Best Batter

Phil Salt could be the batter to watch for in this encounter. The 27-year-old was in sensational form during the recently concluded Indian Premier League. Against Australia, he played a swashbuckling knock of 37 off 23 balls, hitting four fours and two sixes. If Salt gets going, Oman bowlers will be in peril.

Probable Best Bowler

Mark Wood could have an impact in this game. The tearaway pacer could run through batting lineups on his day. He is yet to pick up a wicket in the five overs he has bowled in the marquee event this year. However, the Oman batters aren’t used to facing bowlers who can bowl as fast as Wood. The 34-year-old would be raring to go on Friday.
