Match Details:

The 6th match in Group A of the ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2019 will be played between Afghanistan Emerging Team and Oman Emerging Team at the Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium Academy Ground in Cox’s Bazar.

The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (3:00 AM GMT) (8:30 AM IST).


The first surprise result of the ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup was recorded by Oman as they took down the defending champions Sri Lanka. Chasing a big target of 269, the opening batsman Jatinder Singh batted through the chase to take Oman past the target in the 49th over. Jatinder scored an unbeaten 131 from 150 deliveries. Oman will now face Afghanistan in the 2nd match as they aim a spot in the semi-final. Afghanistan lost their first match against Pakistan by 8-wicket margin having collapsed to just 138.

Weather Condition/Report:

The venue is expected to have no threat from the rain on Saturday.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Academy ground in Cox’s Bazar continued to be favourable to chasing teams as Oman chased down the target of 269. However, the Sri Lankan total of 268 was only the 2nd 250+ total in six unaffected List A matches. We could see another high-scoring match if the batsmen on both sides play to their true potential.
