Oman lock horns with Canada in a top of the table clash in Group B. Both sides have performed admirably so far and given a good account of themselves throughout this campaign. Oman occupy the top spot on the points table with three victories and a solitary defeat from four matches. On the other hand, Canada’s winning run was brought to an end by Hong Kong on Thursday and hence they sit in second position level on points with their current opponents only behind due to an inferior NRR.

Oman vs Canada
25th October 2019
9:00 PM IST
Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Clear conditions with absolutely no chances of rain and temperature ranging around 31 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
It should be a decent batting track with enough assistance in it for all the interested parties. A score between 150-160 could prove to be a winning total on this pitch.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
No changes are expected to be made to the side that lined up in their thumping win over Nigeria in the last game. Jatinder Singh and Khawar Ali form the core of the batting unit and will be relied upon to provide a solid start to the inning whilst the duo of Amir Kaleem and Zeeshan Maqsood bring balance to the side owing to their dual expertise.
Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Aqib Ilyas, Amir Kaleem, Zeeshan Maqsood (C), Khurram Nawaz Khan, Suraj Kumar (WK), Mohammad Nadeem, Sandeep Goud, Fayyaz Butt, Bilal Khan
Skipper Navneet Dhaliwal will lead the way with the willow in hand and should be supported ably by Rodrigo Thomas and Nitish Kumar, who will take up the mantle of anchoring the inning for their side. Dillion Heyliger and Saad Bin Zafar have bagged seven and six wickets respectively in this competition and are the best bets with the bowl for Canada.
Navneet Dhaliwal (C), Rodrigo Thomas, Nitish Kumar, Rizwan Cheema, Ravinderpal Singh, Hamza Tariq (WK), Abraash Khan, Dillon Heyliger, Nikhil Dutta, Saad Bin Zafar, Jeremy Gordon
Khawar Ali is a must-pick considering the immense value he offers with both bat and bowl. So far, he has accumulated 78 runs, which includes a half-century and has picked up six wickets, which points to his effectiveness in both the facets of the game. Amir Khaleem is another all-rounder that deserves a place in the Dream11 Team. He is the leading wicket-taker for Oman with seven wickets to his name and has notched 40 runs in the tournament. For Canada, Navneet Dhaliwal, Nitish Kumar, and Dillion Heylinger should be included in the fantasy side.
