The 1st game of the 4-match T20I series will be played between Oman Women and Germany Women at Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1).
The match starts at 9:30 AM local time (5:30 AM GMT) (11:00 AM IST).
Germany Women will be playing a 4-match T20I series starting on Tuesday against Oman Women in Al Amerat. The team from Germany were scheduled to be part of five matches on Oman tour. The 35-over game played on Monday being the curtain-raiser to the T20I series. The home team chased down the target of 185 for the loss of one wicket with six overs to spare. Oman team made their Women’s T20I debut in January when they were part of the Qatar Tri-series. They won 3 out of 4 matches in the league phase and qualified to the final against Kuwait which they lost by a huge margin.
The weather is unlikely to play a part for this game on Tuesday despite low temperatures in the morning.
The Al Amerat’s Ministry Turf 1 ground will be hosting a Women’s International game for the first time on Tuesday. Hence, it will be tough to predict what type of scores we would be seeing in this series. Usually in Men’s cricket, totals up to 160-170 have been chased down on fresh tracks. Considering the experiences of Oman and Germany, no more than 120 is expected to be chased down here.

It seems a lot of people have picked Amanda D’Costa and Suhani Dadwal in their respective fantasy teams. As per our reading of this tour, the two players were present in the Oman team only as reserves. Both of them are not going to take part in the T20I series irrespective of their performances in the 35-over match played on Monday.
The recent form and home advantage make Oman the better side of the two.
