AUS vs OMN: Match Preview, Pitch Report and Dream 11 Prediction for Match 10 of T20 World Cup 2024

Australia has won two of the last three World Cups across formats. Can they begin their World Cup campaign with an easy win, or will Oman put some resistance in Match 10 of the T20 World Cup 2024, which is being played in Barbados?

Team Previews


Australia won two of the last three World Cups, T20 World Cup 2021 and ODI World Cup 2023, and will be eyeing their third title of this decade under Mitchell Marsh’s captaincy. Most of the players from their squad are coming after playing the IPL, and that experience of playing in the biggest league will add a lot of value, but the players also need to adapt to the current pitches, which are very different from Indian pitches.


Oman was well in the game against Namibia until the end of the last over of the second innings. Mehran Khan conceded just four of the final six deliveries, and the match went into super over. But this time, Bilal Khan, their lead pacer, went for 21, and Namibia took the momentum. Man of the Match David Wiese gave just 10 runs and won it for Namibia. Oman will look to better their condition and present a good chance against Australia, but upsetting them might feel like climbing Mount Everest.

Probable Playing XI

Australia: Travis Head, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh (c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins/Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

Oman: Kashyap Prajapati, Naseem Khushi (wk), Aqib Ilyas (c), Zeeshan Maqsood, Khalid Kail, Ayaan Khan, Mohammad Nadeem, Mehran Khan, Shakeel Ahmed, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan

Pitch Report

The match would be played at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados

  • Total T20I Played- 26
  • Matches Won Batting First- 16
  • Matches Won Batting Second- 7
  • Average First Innings Score- 152

The pitch at Barbados is traditionally balanced, and an average first-innings score of 152 shows the same picture. The ground has already hosted two games in the current tournament, with Oman losing to Namibia in a super-over low-scoring thriller (109 runs each). The second game was washed out, but Scotland scored 90 runs against England in 10 overs without losing a wicket.

Players To Watch Out For

Travis Head

The man of big matches, Head was the player of the Match in the WTC Final 2023, the Semi-Final, and the Final of the Cricket World Cup 2023. He also had a great IPL season, scoring 567 runs and being the fourth-highest run scorer of the tournament. Head scored these runs while maintaining a Strike Rate of over 190.

Mehran Khan

The biggest positive from Oman’s first game of the tournament was Mehran Khan. He bowled the 18th and 20th overs, in which he gave just 8 runs (of which 5 were extras). Three runs in the final two overs and just 7 from the quota of 3 overs while taking 3 wickets is just phenomenal. Mehran Khan will be the most important aspect as Oman needs to stop Australia from achieving a big score or prevent them from chasing the desired total.
