ENG vs OMN: Rain will break England's dream of going to Super 8, threat of being out of the tournament looms

The 28th match of the T20 World Cup 2024 will be between defending champions England and Oman. England must win this match, which will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards International Cricket Stadium in Antigua, at any cost. If England loses this match, they will be eliminated from the Super 8 race. However, rain has the potential to derail its chances of progressing to the next round.

Actually, there is a shadow of rain in this game. England has only one point from its two matches so far. The first match against Scotland was canceled due to rain. In their second match, they were defeated by Australia. If this match gets washed away by rain, then they will have only two points in three matches and will be out of the Super 8 race.

Jos Buttler-led England has to play its last league match against Namibia on this ground after Oman, but before that, this news has increased the tension in England. At the same time, the pitch of Antigua sees a tough competition between both bowling and batting. This is one of those select venues where there is some help for bowling, batting, spin, and pace. Fast bowlers dominate here with the new ball. At the same time, after the ball gets old, the magic of spin bowlers is seen. However, the bad news for England is that there is a possibility of rain during the match.

Probable playing-11 of Team England: Jos Buttler (captain), Moeen Ali, Joffra Archer, Bairstow, Harry Brook, Will Jacks, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt and Mark Wood.
Probable playing-11 of Team Oman: Aqib Ilyas (captain), Naseem Khushi, Pratik Athawale (wicketkeeper), Zeeshan Maqsood, Khalid Kail, Ayan Khan, Mehran Khan, Rafiullah, Shakeel Ahmed, Kalimullah, Bilal Khan.
