Sri Lanka to tour Oman for two T20Is in October

Published on

Sri Lanka will be touring Oman to play two T20I matches with the co-host of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021- Oman before the mega event in October.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) CEO Ashley De Silva confirmed the tour plan in a press release. A full-strength Sri Lanka team will be touring Oman in October before proceeding to the UAE for the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup Round 1 matches where it will compete with Ireland, The Netherlands, and Namibia for passage to the Super 12.

“Sri Lanka will be playing two T20 matches against Oman during the tour and we are extremely pleased that they decided to come to Oman on their way to the UAE,”  Duleep Mendis was quoted as saying by Newswire.

Oman glad to host Sri Lanka

Former Lankan cricketer and current Oman coach Duleep Mendis is ecstatic by the news and hopes that Oman will get to play against a full-strength Lankan team.

“We are glad that the Oman team will be getting the opportunity to play a full-strength Sri Lanka squad which will participate in the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup. The two T20 matches will help both teams as Sri Lanka will have to get acclimatized before reaching the UAE and Oman would have a crack at a top side just before the tournament starts,” said Mendis.

The island country is placed in Group A along with Ireland, The Netherlands, and Namibia while Oman has Bangladesh, Scotland, and PNG in Group B. The two T20I games will be played on OC Ground 1 in Amerat on October 7 and 9. These two T20I matches will provide an ideal opportunity for the Sri Lanka team to acclimatize to the weather and playing conditions which are likely to be similar to the UAE where the T20 World Cup is hosted.
