The stage is set for the 2021 World T20 action to kick off as home side Oman welcome Papua New Guinea in the first qualifier match. Both the sides would be hoping to begin their campaign with a win on Sunday although Oman will start as slight favourites as they will be playing in conditions which suit them as compared to their opponents. With so much to look forward to, we are set for an exciting contest on Super Sunday.
Although the wicketkeepers of both sides had a difficult outing in the previous warm-up game, both Suraj Kumar and Kiplin Doriga are capable of making some valuable contributions in middle-order. Oman opener Aqib Ilyas recently scored a brilliant 78 against Netherlands and is a great candidate for captain/vice-captain in your fantasy side.
On the other hand, PNG all-rounder and captain Assad Vala looked quite impressive and will be one to watch out for in this contest. Among the bowlers, Kaleemulah and Nosaina Pokana are the in-form players and could be among the wickets in this crucial contest.
