From the high of the 2019 ODI World Cup, England came crashing down at the 2023 ODI World Cup, failing miserably in their title defense. Now, England's 2022 T20 World Cup title defence is on the brink of a similar fate unless a remarkable turnaround occurs. This comeback must start with their game against Oman at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.

A washout in their opening encounter against Scotland, followed by a tough defeat against arch-rivals Australia, has put England on the edge of elimination. Jos Buttler and his men have a lot of ground to cover to advance to the Super 8 stage. They need to beat the two eliminated teams, Oman and Namibia, by significant margins and hope that Australia defeat Scotland heavily, allowing England to edge out the Scotts on NRR. Will Jacks and Phil Salt have not been able to replicate their Indian T20 League heroics at the World Cup. However, Salt and Jos Buttler had a brisk start in their last outing, and the opening pair will be looking to build on that performance. Other

Squads:

England Squad: Jos Buttler(w/c), Philip Salt, Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Reece Topley, Ben Duckett, Sam Curran, Tom Hartley

Oman Squad: Kashyap Prajapati, Pratik Athavale(w), Aqib Ilyas(c), Zeeshan Maqsood, Khalid Kail, Ayaan Khan, Shoaib Khan, Mehran Khan, Shakeel Ahmed, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Mohammad Nadeem, Naseem Khushi, Fayyaz Butt, Rafiullah

Antigua has more bounce than even Barbados as per broadcast. No wonder minnows are getting blasted out here. Absolute destruction of Oman coming up against Toppley, Archer and Wood
 
Mott: England prepared to scrap and fight

England head coach Matthew Mott:

“We're treating this game with Oman in isolation.

"They've got our full attention. We're going to prepare really well for that and then see what happens in this game.

“If we get into a position where we're in a dominant position and can push hard, we will.

"If we have to scrap and fight and get the two points, we will as well."
 
It seems like England is already out, as Aussies would go easy on Scotland.
 
England will easily qualify....its not like they need 100 run victories. They just need around 40 odd runs and they can easily blitz Oman and Namibia.

Expecting a 70-80 allout and a chase in 6-7 overs today

Oman is not that poor man.
 
33/7 :D dear me.

NRR swing could be nuts here.
 
Unless Australia deliberately loses to Scotland or something, England are going through. They have hammered Oman and they will hammer Namibia.
 
Of the associates team, Oman is the most boring one. They have zero players of Omanese origin. Teams like Ned, Namibia, Scotland, Ireland are way more exciting.
 
Australia
India
South Africa
England
Windies
Bangladesh
Afghanistan

8th team is a close call between USA and Pakistan.
 
Glad England made it. Otherwise the super 8 lineup would have been horrible. These are now the possible super 8 groups and they are both good but Group 2 looks more thrilling

Group 1: ind, Aus, Afg, BD
Group 2: Pak, Eng, WI, SA

Let's hope Irish show some fight against India H1B

England race to mammoth win over Oman and overhaul NRR deficit

Faced with a target of just 48 to win, England roared out of the blocks as Phil Salt slammed the first two balls for six before chopping on to the third ball of the innings.

And England made extremely short work of the target as Jos Buttler (24* from 8 balls) and Jonny Bairstow (8* from 2) tore into the Oman attack after Will Jacks had departed for 5 from 7.

The win is exactly what England required to turn Group B’s NRR equation on its head, and brought a curtain down on Oman’s tournament in demoralising fashion against the reigning Champions.

Earlier, England’s pace blew Oman away as Mark Wood and Jofra Archer took three wickets apiece to help skittle their Group B opponents for just 47 in 13.2 overs.

Archer did the early damage, taking two Powerplay wickets and returning to wrap things up with his third, to end with figures of 3/12 from 3.2 overs.

And Wood brought up his 50th wicket in T20 Internationals in the process of taking 3/12.

It wasn’t just pace that did the damage, as Adil Rashid proved too good for the Oman tail, with the England leggie picking 4/11 in his four outstanding overs.

England won the toss and opted to bowl first against Oman in North Sound, Antigua, with captain Jos Buttler announcing one change to the playing XI, with Reece Topley replacing Chris Jordan.

And the decision to hit Oman with a pace assault reaped early rewards, as England picked up a flurry of early wickets.

Jofra Archer bagged two in the Powerplay, having both Pratik Athavale (5) and captain Aqib Ilyas (8) caught in the ring, with Reece Topley bowling nicely but without reward at the other end.

It was the extra pace of Mark Wood that continued to pile on the hurt for Oman, as he exposed the tail with quickfire wickets, dismissing Zeeshan Maqsood (1), Kashyap Prajapati (9) and Ayaan Khan (1) in his first two overs.

It wasn’t all pace that did the damage for England, with Adil Rashid also getting amongst the wickets. Jos Buttler stumped Khalid Kail (1) and Moeen Ali held onto a tricky catch at slip to remove Mehran Khan (0) off the leg-spinner.

Rashid cleaned up both Fayyaz Butt and Kaleemullah, pulling out all the tricks in a wonderful spell.

And Archer returned to finish the job, removing the only batter to reach double figures, as Shoaib Khan skied one to Buttler for 11.

Oman’s total of 47 all out in 13.2 overs handed England a terrific opportunity to make a big statement.

They are ahead of Scotland now. Who are under severe pressure against Australia

Why u laughing man? Im being serious!. Maybe pakistan players should open kebab stand in nyc … they will always have meet and great and make lot of money…
 
First Pakistan needs to get other teams bowled out under 50 and if somehow we do that, then hopefully one of Babar and Rizwan would stay there to chase the target down, otherwise remaining 9 players would crumble under 50.

Give me strength.

This old record.

Same people who said we won’t make 30 without Misbah
 
Guys this is not the thread to discuss Rizwan and Babar so please avoid derailing this one and bump a relevant thread.
 
Oman looks like Pakistani discard team. Very poor from them. They are not even on PNG level.

Misbah was never a good limited overs player so bringing him into discussion is pointless. Pakistan is utterly out of talent right now. Middle order is non existent!
