The 4th game of the 2020 Oman Tri-Nation ODI Series part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 will be played between the United Arab Emirates and Namibia at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1).
The match starts at 11:30 AM local time (7:30 AM UTC) (01:00 PM IST).
Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
After they were defeated by Oman in the first game, the United Arab Emirates bounced back strongly against Namibia. In a thriller of an encounter, UAE edged the opposition out by just 8 runs. Following this loss, Namibia also managed to bounce back in the last game that they played. The side defeated Oman by a big margin of 52 runs to get started in the tournament.
With each team having one victory each thus far in the tournament, it is level playing ground at the moment. They are only differentiated by the NRR and would want to assert their dominance. With both teams having the winning momentum on their side, one could expect another tough competition in this match.
It will be a bright sunny day in Al Amarat on Thursday. With a temperature high of 27C and low of 17C, it shouldn’t cause any problems to a game of cricket. There is no chance of precipitation and there will be a gentle breeze blowing around.
With every game, the track in Al Amarat seems to be getting better. The third game of the tournament was a high-scoring fixture and it is likely to remain that way for this match as well.
