ACC Trophy Elite 2010 - Commentary - Oman v Singapore

Venue : Kuwait
Dates : 31st March - 9th April 2010

 

Match Referee Mehboob Khan awards the Man of the Match to Awal Khan of Oman for his lively seam bowling and 4-29 in the morning.
173 was unlikely to be enough and so it proved as the Omani batsmen pretty much did as they pleased against some earnest but unthreatening Singaporean bowling which was just a liitle too short and too full too often.
A good result for Oman, they never let Singapore have a sniff of a chance from the morning as their bowlers just strangled the Singapore batsmen.

Singapore won the toss and chose to bat.

Positive decision on a wicket that looks full of runs. There are patches of rolled-in grass interleaven with bare spots. There'll be bounce and turn for the spinners for sure and they'll be bowling most of the overs. 250's par on this track.
