Oman vs Papua New Guinea Betting Tips 17/10/2021

Teams Status


Oman, as the first-time co-hosts of the tournament, have played a number of tune-up matches to prepare themselves.

They first faced Sri Lanka in a two-match series they had no chance of winning, and although they made the islanders work harder than expected, they lost both the matches in the end.

Then there was a one-off game against Namibia, which they won quite convincingly, largely thanks to the bowling of their Gujranwala-born pacer Kaleemullah.

However, they were beaten by Netherlands in their final tune-up, which was also officially a tune-up to the World T20. That said, that match was quite close, and was decided in the final over, or more specifically, on the final ball, with Oman requiring a six for the win but only managing a single.

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea, too, have played four matches ahead of this clash with Oman. They lost both their one-off T20Is to Scotland and Namibia.

The bright side of those losses was their batters scoring 154 and 160 in those games, which were not shabby scores.

Against Ireland, though, their batting collapsed, managing just 96-8 and getting thrashed by eight wickets. They were again flat in their final tune-up, which was against Sri Lanka, mustering up just 123-7 in reply to the islanders’ 162-5.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Papua New Guinea to win @ 5.10

Full disclaimer: Oman look the stronger of the two sides and will also enjoy home advantage. That said, the odds on them are ridiculous, to say the least. The odds on them portray them as a side much bigger than they are. On top of it, Guinea batters have gotten some runs during their quartet of tune-ups. Yes, they are the lesser side but at whopping odds of 5.10, we’ll have a piece of them. The play can be found on 1xbet.

Tip: Assad Vala total runs over 14.5 @ 1.80

Guinea captain Assad Vala has been in superb form of late. He has contributed double-digit scores in seven of his last eight games. In the last game, against a Sri Lankan side several notches highest in terms of quality, he scored a half-century (51), which was on the slower side (44 balls) but was valuable, nonetheless. Our ask of him is to just cover the 14.5-run spread. The play can be found on 22Bet.


Guinea are the lightest team in Group B of the first round but this match against Oman also presents the easiest of all the assignments awaiting them. If they can win any of them, it’s this one.
