Australia obliterated a hapless Oman unit at the Kensington Oval in Barbados in match number 10 of the ongoing 2024 T20 World Cup.

After setting a competitive total upfront, the Australians collectively restricted an inexperienced Oman batting line-up well below their target in the run-chase.

Here’s the timeline of how AUS vs OMA panned out in Barbados:

AUS vs OMA Highlights: Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh Fail To Capitalize On Their Starts

Australian opener Travis Head (12 from 10 balls) composed a couple of gorgeous drives early in the innings before he was holed out by Khalid Kail at mid-off off the bowling of Bilal Khan. Following Head’s early departure, Australian captain Mitchell Marsh took his time to reach a sluggish 14 before he was picked out by Shoaib Khan at long-on in the ninth over of the innings.

Mehran Khan, who accounted for the wicket of Marsh, also trapped Glenn Maxwell for a first-ball duck as Australia slipped to 50-3 in 8.3 overs.

AUS vs OMA Highlights: David Warner Makes Unusual Half-Century

Seemingly jolted by the early strikes, Australian opener David Warner took a cautious approach to his innings during his 100-plus fourth-wicket partnership with Marcus Stoinis. The legendary southpaw steered Australia past the 150-run mark, and brought up his 50 from 46 deliveries with a six in the penultimate over to list the 27th half-century of his illustrious T20I career.

AUS vs OMA Highlights: Marcus Stoinis Packs 67* To Take AUS To 164

Marcus Stoinis, batting at 11* from 15 balls at one stage, launched Oman fast bowler Mehran Khan for four sixes in one over to blaze Australia past the 100-run mark.

While David Warner guarded one end of the crease, Stoinis walloped a few more lusty hits at the death as Australia finished at a competitive 164-5 from 20 overs.

AUS vs OMA Highlights: Mitchell Starc, Nathan Ellis Take New-Ball Advantage

Australian pace thunderbolt Mitchell Starc made instant impact with the new-ball, trapping Oman opener Pratik Athavale plumb in front of stumps with searing pace in the first over of the run-chase.

About four overs later, Nathan Ellis accounted for the wicket of a well-set Kashyap Prajapati with another LBW while all-rounder Marcus Stoinis removed Aqib Ilyas as Oman slipped to 29-3 at the end of the powerplay.

AUS vs OMA Highlights: Collective Australian Brilliance Restricts Oman To 125-9

Australian fast bowlers continued to maintain pressure on Oman batters, with both Mitchell Starc and Nathan Ellis striking once more in their spells to claim two wickets each in the innings.

Primary spinner Adam Zampa also joined in the fun by mowing down Oman’s middle-order with two key wickets from his four overs.

Marcus Stoinis, who bludgeoned a 36-ball 67* with the bat, further removed Zeeshan Maqsood at 34-4 and Mehran Khan in the penultimate over to restrict Oman to just 125-9 from 20 overs to secure a 39-run win for Australia.
