Oman will host Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Canada in the Desert Cup T20I starting on Monday. The series will be played in a round-robin format where teams will play against each other twice. The top two teams will directly qualify for the final scheduled on the 21st of November. Oman will take on Saudi Arabia in the opening game of the series. Oman hasn’t featured in the shortest format since February after losing to Nepal in the 3rd Place Play-Off of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier A. The players are in good touch by playing local tournaments. Currently, they are ranked 18th in the ICC T20I rankings. Zeeshan Maqsood will captain the side in this series whereas Jatinder Singh is named as his deputy.
It’s been more than one year since Saudi Arabia last featured in a T20I. It will be quite tough for them to win a game against the higher-rank sides directly. They went through the training sessions well and are feeling confident about themselves. To date, they have featured in only 12 T20Is and have a winning record of 50 percent. They are ranked 33rd in the ICC T20I rankings. Abdul Waheed Ghaffar will be leading the side. Faisal Khan and Abdul Wahid are the other players to watch out for. Both sides are facing each other for the first time in the T20Is and it will be interesting who will come out victorious.
