Oman vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20I Betting Tips 09/10/2021

Teams Status

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won the opening T20I as expected but the manner of their victory was not quite what we had anticipated.

Perhaps, it was the size of their opposition that kept them from giving their all, or maybe it was the unfamiliarity of the conditions but whatever it was, Sri Lanka performed far below their usual level and only won by 19 runs in the end.

In fact, at the start of the match, when Sri Lanka had begun their innings, they were 7-2, 21-3, and 51-4, at various points. It had seemed at the time as if an upset may also be in the offing but Avishka Fernando (83*) and captain Dasun Shanaka (51) got them bailed out.

In the end, enough of recovery was made that a total of 162-4 was amassed, which proved enough for the win.


Oman had a dream start to the match as explained above. In the 11th over, they had Sri Lanka reeling at 51-4 and were on top in the contest.

From that point, the islanders got serious and then Oman did not have a chance.

While their bowlers had impressed in spurts, their batting top order was totally flat, just as Sri Lanka’s was. None of the Omani top four got into double figures, and even though the lower order did put up a bit of a fight, they were never truly in the match.

Had the top order played their part, though, or even contributed a little bit, Oman would have been in with a chance.

Tipster’s Angle

Oman – total runs in first over under 4.5 @ 2.28

In the opening T20I, Oman lost their first wicket at the score of zero on just the fourth ball of the match. They finished the opening over at 2-1. Their poor start is precisely why their team lost. After that kind of nightmarish start, there is no way that Omani openers are going to take any chance in the first over of tomorrow’s game. Therefore, the play here is to back them to score less than 4.5 runs at odds of 2.28. The play can be found on Dafabet.

Tip: Sri Lanka total runs in over 1, more than 5.5 @ 1.55

Sri Lankan openers, on the other hand, will have to mend their reputation a little bit after their disastrous start in the previous game. In their case, however, reputation can’t be repaired by blocking balls or playing safe. The way to go for them is to play their strokes, which is why we think they’d score more than 5.5 runs in over one. The play can be found on Dafabet.


Sri Lanka got their scare in the first match. They’d be wiser and more careful in the follow-up game and should win much easier.
