MUSCAT: Oman Cricket’s picturesque grounds welcomes international cricket yet again with the Desert Cup T20I series to be played between Oman, Canada, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
The series is set to start from November 14 until November 21, which will be played in a double round-robin format
between the sides followed by a third place play-off and a final.
Duleep Mendis, Oman Cricket’s Chief Development Officer and Oman’s head coach said, “ It’s great to have the three visiting countries in Oman. We are expecting good competitive cricket being played throughout the tournament in the coming week. Our boys look fresh and ready to express themselves on the field.”
