Many probably predicted that the first round of the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup would be worse than watching the proverbial paint dry, but it has been the complete opposite. We have been treated to some mouth-watering games, and there is another one around the corner with a spot in the Super 12 stage at stake. The game between Scotland and Oman is basically a knockout, unless Bangladesh do not turn up against Papua New Guinea.

So, what is our T20 World Cup prediction of who will go ahead and win and qualify for the next round? Read on to find out.

Oman Team Preview

Although Oman did not manage to get a win in their match against Bangladesh, they still have their destiny in their own hands as far as qualification to the next round is concerned. The fact that they got a huge win against Papua New Guinea has helped them out massively as it boosted their Net Run Rate quite dramatically.

Apart from their NRR advantage, they also have the added advantage of playing at home with familiar conditions and having most of the supporters right behind them. They dismantled Papua New Guinea and gave Bangladesh a good game, so Scotland will definitely be wary. As far as batting goes though, their middle order has not had a lot of action, and this could prove to be decisive in this winner takes all match.

Oman's bowling attack is their strong suit, so if their batsmen can put in a good shift and put a good total on the board, they will back themselves to come out on top in the match.

Scotland Team Preview

Scotland have won both of their games in the group, but they are still not guaranteed a spot in the second round. If they do not qualify for the Super 12 stage, they will kick themselves for letting Papua New Guinea back into the game when they had that in the mud at 33/5.

The situation for Scotland now is pretty simple - win this match and qualify for the next round. However, a loss will leave their fate to Net Run Rate and will leave them watching the Bangladesh v Papua New Guinea match through their fingers.

Scotland will be pretty happy with the way that they have been playing, and we actually think they have been really good, apart from some minor slip ups. Kyle Coetzer has not been in the runs for a while now, and this next game will be the perfect time for him to get some form back. Additionally, the injury to Safyaan Sharif means that Alasdair Evans has joined the party, and he will probably play in this next match.

Overall, Scotland have quality and experience in their lineup and if they play to the best of their ability, then they stand a very good chance of making it three wins from three and qualifying for the Super 12 stage.

Toss Prediction

From the four matches that have been played at this stadium in this tournament, the winning captain chose to bat first twice and both times their team won the game. We think the winning captain will opt to bat first this time too because if they can notch a big score, there will be an awful lot of pressure on the team batting second because they know they must win to go through to the next round.

Pitch Conditions

The weather will be good for a cricket match, and the pitch should be good for cricket too. We have seen a lot of carry and pace in this surface, and we expect more or less the same in this game. If the winner of the coin toss opts to bat first, they will aim for around 170 as this will put the team batting second under immense pressure.

Match Predictions

Associate nations do not often get the chance to qualify for a major part of a World Cup, so this is an opportunity that both sides will want to grab. Scotland have been very good in this series, but they do not want to fall at the last hurdle, while Oman have proven that they are a capable cricket team. Oman will have the crowd behind them, and this could end up being a huge advantage. Despite this, Scotland have looked more balanced than Oman, and this is why we would put our money on the Scots to win and qualify for the next round!
