Preview:

Oman is set to end the pentangular series on the top of the points table with their huge win over the Netherlands on Wednesday. The hosts skittled the Dutch for just 94 runs courtesy of four-wicket hauls from Khawar Ali and skipper Zeeshan Maqsood. And then Oman chased down the total without much fuss. Unless they lose by an extremely huge margin, Oman looks set to win this series.

Nepal have also played decently in this series and have won two matches against Hong Kong and the Netherlands but went down to Ireland. Nepal also have a chance to win the series but their net run-rate is in negative and will need a huge win to top the points table. Nevertheless, they will love to end the series with a victory.

Weather Condition/Report:

There is no chance of rain on Thursday and the sun is expected to come out when the match gets underway. The temperature will hover in the mid-30s.


Pitch Condition/Report:

The pattern of scores in this series have been pretty inconsistent. This makes clear that a certain strip is a high scoring one and others are not so. Chasing has been the favoured trend so far and the team winning the toss is expected to bat first.

Average first innings score: 143 (Last 8 T20Is)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 5, Lost – 3
