England will be looking for a major win when they meet Oman in the 28th match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 on Thursday, June 13 at North Sound, Antigua. England is winless after their first two games, while Oman was eliminated from the Super 8 campaign after three consecutive defeats.

The reigning champions’ initial game against Scotland was wiped out owing to weather, and they later lost by 36 runs to Australia when chasing a 202-run goal. England faces elimination if they lose to Oman at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

However, Oman was the first team from Group B to be eliminated from the Super 8 race. Oman was unable to hold off 150 runs against Scotland in a game they had to win, following victories over Namibia and Australia.

ENG vs OMN: Top 5 Players to Watch Out For:

Jos Buttler:

Jos Buttler is enjoying a stellar year in Twenty20 cricket, with over 900 runs at a career-best average of 42.4. His impressive strike rate of 146 adds to his formidable batting prowess. As England prepares to play on Antigua’s slower track, Buttler is expected to play a pivotal role once again as their primary hitter. His ability to score quickly and effectively, combined with his experience and form, makes him a key player in their lineup, capable of making a significant impact in the upcoming matches.

Will Jacks:

Will Jacks hasn’t been able to match that kind of performance for England, but he has had some pretty excellent innings in franchise cricket in recent months (average 31.8 and strike rate of 169 in 2024). In 14 innings under 30, he has been out 12 times, and his average is a pitiful 17.7.

Jofra Archer:

The English pacer will take the new ball, a technique that has worked well on this track. The pace and playing conditions, combined with Jofra Archer‘s talent, might prove devastating for the Oman hitters. Archer’s ability to produce pace and movement, along with bowler-friendly ground conditions, might pose a serious challenge to the opposition. England will try to capitalize on these issues by limiting Oman’s batting lineup early in the match.

Aqib Ilyas:

Aqib Ilyas, who has other duties for the Oman team as its captain and is an all-rounder, is a great bowler, capable of throwing a variety of right spin balls. Apart from his bowling duties, he also does well when batting, with an average strike rate for him being 125.77 and 16.69 as a bowler. As an all-rounder, Ilyas has also taken 16 wickets with an economy rate of 6.53, besides clocking 12 at an average of 16.69 from 260 runs scored in his last nine outings.

Mehran Khan:

The Oman team’s most effective bowler is a left-arm medium-pacer. Due to his ability to take wickets despite having a slow ball pace, Mehran Khan might be a useful bowler vs England.
