Uncapped Ayaan and Dhamba named in Oman's T20 World Cup squad

The 15-man squad will be led by experienced Zeeshan Maqsood

Zeeshan Maqsood will lead Oman's 15-member squad in the upcoming 2021 T20 World Cup. Uncapped Ayaan Khan and Nestor Dhamba have been named in the squad which features the majority of the players that played in the qualifiers two years ago in UAE.

Considering they will play all their qualifying matches in Oman, they have named no reserve players. Ayaan, Dhamba, Khurram Khan and Sufyan Mehmood are the ones who didn't feature in the qualifiers, while spinners Jay Odedra and Aamir Kaleem have been left out.

Oman, who are the co-hosts of the T20 World Cup along with the UAE, will rely on the experience of Maqsood, Aqib Ilyas, Khawar Ali, Mohammad Nadeem and Jatinder Singh in the showpiece event. Mohammad Nadeem, wicketkeeper Suraj Kumar and Sandeep Goud will give them some firepower in the lower middle-order. 

In order to qualify for the Super 12 stage, Oman will first have to achieve a top-two finish in their group of Bangladesh, Scotland and Papua New Guinea. They were the last team to make it to the T20 World Cup as they defeated Hong Kong in the qualifier playoff game in 2019.

Oman also featured in the 2016 T20 World Cup but could only win one of their three encounters. They got the better of reland in Dharamsala, which was their first-ever tournament win. They recently played three T20s against Indian domestic side Mumbai and managed to win two of those games.  

Oman will start their campaign against PNG on October 18 in Al Amerat. They will then take on Bangladesh on October 19 and Scotland on October 21.

Squad: Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Mohammad Nadeem, Ayaan Khan, Suraj Kumar, Sandeep Goud, Nestor Dhamba, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Naseem Khushi, Sufyan Mehmood, Fayyaz Butt, Khurram Khan.
