Oman will take on Namibia in a Warm-up match of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Tuesday. Oman are the co-host of this edition’s T20 World Cup, and they would have to take part in the main competition. They lost their previous T20I series against Sri Lanka by a 2-0 margin. It’s a learning curve for them and they need to back their abilities in the T20 World Cup.

Namibia, on the other hand, are in exceptional form, having won their last 3 T20Is on this tour against UAE, Scotland, and PNG. The inclusion of former South African cricketer David Wiese into the Namibian side has made them even more formidable. They have got some really talented all-rounders in the likes of JJ Smit, David Wiese, and Jan Frylinck.
