Oman vs Scotland Betting Tips 21/10/2021

Teams Status


After a dominating 10-wicket win over Papua New Guinea in their opening match of the tournament, Oman were brought down to earth on Tuesday when they were beaten by Bangladesh.

They were beaten but not outplayed by any means – something which would give them pride and hope for the future, including this game on hand against the Scots.

They had quite a few positives to draw from the Bangladesh loss. They conceded 153 runs but picked up all 10 wickets, while a bulk of those 153 runs were made by just two batters: Mohammad Naim (64) and Shakib Al Hasan (42). Had it not been for those two, who knows what might have happened.

In the run chase against Bangla, Oman were 47-1 at one point in the sixth over and making their stronger opponents uncomfortable. Then the wickets started tumbling at regular intervals and the run chase went awry.

Thanks to their win over PNG, Oman still have everything to play for in Group B. If they win this one, they can very well be the side that goes through.


Scotland are the best-placed side in Group B, with two wins in as many games. After upsetting Bangladesh in their opening match, the Scots bested Papua New Guinea on Tuesday.

In the win over PNG, their middle-order, which had collapsed against Bangla, redeemed itself and clicked, with Richie Berrington top-scoring with a well-made 70. Matthew Cross also contributed 45.

That said, this time, the lower order batsmen could not do much, with anyone from number six and below contributing in double figures.

This is a very winnable game for the Scots. If they pass this mini-test, then they’d progress as Group B winners, and will have their tails up for the main round.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Scotland to win @ 1.616

Plain and simple, Scotland are the better side here, of which there is no doubt. In fact, the odds, as per our assessment, should be shorter than they are for Scotland. We believe there is a clear advantage in betting on Scotland here. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Highest Individual Score Over 57.5

The Scots are flawless in their T20 World Cup campaign so far and have seen multiple batters find runs for them. George Munsey, Berrington, Cross, or anyone else can easily get hot and break the 57.5-run limit for this bet to hit. Munsey, for instance, has had starts twice now and hasn’t made a big score so he must be chomping at the bit now. The play can be found on 22Bet.


Scotland have had comfortable wins over Oman in all of their last three meetings. Oman do have that odd chance of raising their game as it is their turf but we do not think that is likely.
