The T20 World Cup 2024 matches are going by quickly, and Scotland (SCO) vs. Oman (OMN) is the next major encounter. Both teams have a lot riding on this game, and it will determine how they finish in the competition.

Despite posting a meager score, Oman (OMA) played out of their skin to come dangerously close to pulling off a shock victory over Namibia. As demonstrated during their match against Australia, Oman suffered a significant setback following their loss in the Super Over. Despite being in difficulty early on, Oman was outplayed by Australia, demonstrating their lack of experience.

After their match was postponed due to inclement weather, Scotland (SCO) shared points with England to start the competition. With three points from two games, Richie Barrington and his team trounced Namibia by five wickets in the very next game, needing just nine balls to win.

This put them at the top of the table. Scotland produced a polished display, batting, and bowling brilliantly to win two points.
