It was a sigh of relief for Bangladesh, as it managed to outplay Oman by 26 runs in its Group B Qualifier 5 of the ICC World T20 2021 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground (Ministry Turf 1) in Muscat on Tuesday. With this win, Bangladesh has risen to the third spot in the table and is in contention for the Super 12s, with Oman (second) and Scotland (first).

Winning the toss, Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah opted to bat, making a change, as he brought in opener Mohammad Naim for Soumya Sarkar. At the same time, Oman captain Zeeshan Maqsood moved in with the same XI.

Bangladesh was off to a tense start, losing Liton Das (6) and Mahedi Hasan (0) within the fifth over of the Powerplay, with 21 runs on the board. However, the pair of Naim (64) and Shakib Al Hasan (42) contributed to an 80-run stand for the third wicket, thus strengthening the Bangladeshi innings.

In the 14th over, while Shakib was run out, Nurul Hasan (3) was dismissed by Maqsood in the 15th, 11 runs later. In the subsequent ten runs, by 122, Afif Hossain (1) and Naim departed to Kaleemullah in the 17th.

The following batters fell for single figures, except Mahmudullah (17), with Bangladesh getting shot out for 153 at the end of the 20th. Oman put six bowlers into the attack, with pacers Fayyaz Butt and Bilal Khan claiming three, while Bilal nailed it with his economy.

In reply, Oman was off to a jumpy start as well, losing Aqib Ilyas (6) and Kashyap Prajapati (21) by the sixth over of the PP, at 47. A 34-run stand between opener Jatinder Singh (40) and Maqsood (12) resulted before the latter fell to spinner Mahedi Hasan in the 12th, followed by the former in the next over to spinner Hasan, at the score of 90.
