NAM vs OMAN: Match Preview, Pitch Report and Dream 11 Prediction for Match 3 of T20 World Cup 2024

Similar to Day 1, the second day of T20 World Cup 2024 will also feature 2 games

  • Match 3: Namibia vs Oman
  • Match 4: Sri Lanka vs South Africa

Here, we will discuss Match 3 between Namibia and Oman in detail, and a fantasy team will be provided at the end. In the recently concluded T20I series between these two nations, Namibia won by a margin of 3-2.

Team Previews


After their Super 12 appearance in T20 World Cup 2021, Namibia will be playing only their second T20 World Cup. Namibia defeating Sri Lanka in the qualifiers was a highlight of the T20 World Cup 2022, but it failed to advance to the further stages of the tournament. Gerhard Erasmus’ lead side will look to make an impact, starting with a win against Oman.


After their omission in the previous tournament, Oman will be making a comeback in the T20 World Cup. Their captain will be their most important player along with bowler Bilal Khan. Oman was leading 2-1 in the series against Namibia played in April, but Namibia made a comeback and won the next two games to clinch the series.

Probable Playing XI

Namibia: JP Kotze, Malan Kruger, Jan Frylick, Gerhard Erasmus (c), David Wiese, Zane Green (wk), Dylan Leicher, Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz, Jack Brassell, Tangeni Lungameni

Oman: Kashyap Prajapati, Naseem Khushi (wk), Aqib Ilyas (c), Zeeshan Maqsood, Aayan Khan, Rafiullah, Mohammad Nadeem, Mehran Khan, Fayyaz Butt, Samay Shrivastava, Bilal Khan

Pitch Report

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

  • Total T20I Played- 23
  • Matches Won Batting First- 16
  • Matches Won Batting Second- 7
  • Average First Innings Score- 159

The pitch at Kensington Oval provides opportunities for both batsmen and bowlers, making it a balanced pitch. There is good bounce for the batsmen, helping them to play good shots, and there is also an adequate amount of help for the spinners as the game progresses. As the stats say, the team batting first has a higher chance of winning at this ground.

Players To Watch Out For

David Wiese

Looking at his experience and the value he holds in the team, Wiese will be the most important player for Namibia in the game. His role as a middle-order batsman (mostly as a finisher) and his role as a bowler will also be vital. In the last 12 months, Wiese has scored 120 runs, averaging 40 in 11 games. He also has 13 scalps in this period

Aqib Ilyas 

With an average of just 13.08, captain Aqib Ilyas has sent 35 batsmen back to the pavilion in T20I in the previous 1 year. Additionally, in batting, he has scored 675 runs in this period with a Strike Rate of 135.

Aqib is the highest wicket-taker and the best batsman for Oman in the last 12 months, and if this team is looking to put up some challenge against Namibia, their captain has to stand tall and perform according to his reputation.
