NAM vs OMN: Team Previews


Led by Gerhard Erasmus, Namibia's renaissance as a cricket playing nation is inspirational, to say the least. Riding on some spectacular performances, Namibia outclassed Zimbabwe and Uganda to claim the top spot in the World Cup Africa region qualifiers. 

The presence of several multidimensional players is Namibia's strongest suit as they will be dependent on Erasmus, David Wiese, Jan Frylinck, Michael Van Lingen and JJ Smit, who have established themselves as absolute match-winners in the format. 

The eyes will also be on Ruben Trumpelmann and Bernard Scholtz, who can run through the opposition with their clinical bowling on a given day. 

Key Players

  • Gerhard Erasmus: 1339 runs & 43 wickets in 57 T20Is
  • David Wiese: 573 runs & 54 wickets in 50 T20Is
  • JJ Smit: 826 runs & 46 wickets in 47 T20Is
  • Jan Frylinck: 620 runs & 63 wickets in 57 T20Is

On the other hand, Oman witnessed a major change in their leadership group, with Aqib Ilyas Sulehri taking over the reigns from Zeeshan Maqsood. 

The Middle East nation has a competitive squad comprising several impactful players throughout the lineup. 

While Ilyas and Zeeshan strengthen Oman's batting unit, Bilal Khan and Fayyaz Butt will spearhead their bowling department. More importantly, Oman can take inspiration from their recent form as they have won nine of their 14 matches this year. 

Key Players

  • Zeeshan Maqsood: 1295 runs & 48 wickets in 65 T20Is
  • Aqib Ilyas Sulehri: 1176 runs & 37 wickets in 48 T20Is
  • Bilal Khan: 106 wickets in 75 T20Is
  • Fayyaz Butt: 45 wickets in 43 T20Is

NAM vs OMN: Kensington Oval Barbados Pitch Report

The surface at Kensington Oval in Barbados will offer a hint of seam movement to the new ball bowlers early on. Additionally, there will be some extra bounce for the fast bowlers.

However, the batters can play their shots once they adapt to the pace and bounce. On the other hand, don't expect the spinners to get significant turn as they will rely on accuracy to succeed. 

Traditionally, teams batting first have won 16 out of 24 matches at this venue. However, considering it's the first game of the World Cup in Barbados, the toss-winner might opt to bowl first.
