England face Oman in a crucial T20 World Cup clash on Thursday, June 13th, in North Sound, Antigua. Both teams come into the match with contrasting fortunes: England seeking a vital win to keep their Super Eights hopes alive, while Oman look to salvage pride after three successive defeats.

England quest for redemption

England‘s World Cup campaign has been shaky so far. Two losses in their opening matches have put them under immense pressure. They need a convincing win against Oman, followed by victories against Namibia and a favorable result elsewhere, to potentially progress to the Super Eights stage.

Oman batting woes

Oman, despite valiant efforts against Namibia and Australia, have struggled with their batting. A string of dropped catches and a lack of intent have hampered their progress. They’ll be looking to address these issues and end their tournament on a high.
