Oman Cricket (OC) have announced their 14-member men’s national squad for the upcoming 5th round of ICC CWC League 2 Championship from Feb 05th – 12th, 2020 in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Oman, who are currently occupying the 4th spot in the points table with 4 wins from their 7 completed matches (1 match vs Namibia was not played due to country-wide mourning ceremony for the death of Oman’s Sultan) in League 2 so far, will face Nepal and USA in round 5 of the Championship, and play 2 ODI matches each against both their opponents. USA are currently on top of the points table with 6 wins from their 8 completed matches, while host’s Nepal will be playing their first matches in the Championship during the week.
Oman squad remains unchanged from their previous League 2 event held at home in Dec 2019, when they faced UAE and Namibia. However, a notable omission from their squad remains in the form of Amir Kaleem, who was an integral part of the squad during ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers in Oct/Nov 2019 in UAE. Kaleem, along with Khurram Nawaz Khan, Gopendra Bohara and Ajay Lalcheta have been named as the reserves in a scenario of injury replacements.
The matches will be crucial for Oman, who will look to catch-up with USA at the top of the points table.
Zeeshan Maqsood (Captain), Khawar Ali, Jatinder Singh, Sandeep Goud, Muhammad Nadeem Bhalli, Kaleem Ullah, Bilal Khan, Ahmed Fayyaz Butt, Aqib Ilyas, Suraj Kumar, Jay Odedra, Baadal Singh, Sanuth Ebrahim & Muhammad Naseem
