This has been a fairytale journey so far for Oman, who were not expected to win anything coming into the tournament. The fact that they have managed to make it with a fighting chance of progressing to the Super-10s is excellent news. However, Bangladesh are the clear favourites to win the match. Bangladesh have managed to play some wonderful cricket throughout the last year or so. They recently beat Sri Lanka and Pakistan as well to make it to the final of Asia Cup T20 2016, where they were vanquished by India.

Oman have a few exciting players like Aamer Ali, Munis Ansari, and Ajay Lalcheta, who will undoubtedly play their hearts out. Bangladesh will have to be wary of taking the opposition lightly — something other teams have been guilty of doing against Bangladesh over the years.
