164/5 (20.0/20)
125/9 (20.0/20)
Australia beat Oman by 39 runs
Right then, Australia have got their campaign underway with a win and are building up nicely to that clash against eternal rivals England in a couple of days' time. The only downside was Mitchell Starc hobbling off the playing field but later on it was confirmed as just a cramp which is great news. We have had 10 matches so far and there are still a few teams who haven't yet taken the field, one of them being Pakistan who will play the next game of the tournament against an in-form USA side. That match will be played on Thursday, 6 June in Dallas, Texas and the match will begin at 9 pm IST (3.30 pm GMT) but you can tune in a lot sooner for the build-up. Cheers!
The victorious skipper of Australia, Mitchell Marsh says to begin the tournament with a victory is always a good thing. Says that the contribution of Marcus Stoinis was key for the side as he took the game deep and kept landing those big shots. Informed that it was just a bit of a cramp for Mitchell Starc and nothing to be worried about. Adds that they are looking forward to playing England next up and they are excited with the wickets being the way they are as a closer game between Oman and Australia is good for the game in the bigger picture.
The captain of Oman, Aqib Ilyas says the tournament is set up good and losing in the Super Over and doing then doing well against a big team is good. Adds that the credit goes to the bowlers and just that one over where Marcus Stoinis got a life and then got 26 off the over changed the game. Mentions that they have good spinners in the side and even the pacers bowl good but it's just that one fielding mishap happened. On his catch, he says that somewhile back, Zeeshan Maqsood took one stellar catch and he wanted to replicate that and wanted to do something magical against the Aussies. Adds that they changed their plans and tried to bowl away from the slot but it was a bit late and goes on to say that they have quality batters and it is just the big occasion that has got the better of them. Ends by saying that they are looking forward to the next game against Scotland who are a team they have played against quite a lot.
Marcus Stoinis is the Player of the Match for his fine all-round showing. He says that it is a nice start and they are happy to get the win and everybody got to bowl. Adds that he was looking to hit the ball hard along the ground and then he picked his bowlers and took them on. Mentions that it was a bit harder to face the spinners rather than the pacers as the ball was keeping up and down for them more. Adds that he bowled a lot of cross seemed deliveries as the balls were keeping low occasionally so he tried to mix it with the bouncers as well.
The Presentation ceremony...
Oman will look back at this game and they will think that they could have really pushed Australia down to the wire in this game but that's where the difference between the top teams and the rest of the pack lies, they make you pay even if you give them half a chance. Oman were brilliant with the ball for about two-thirds of the game and then with the bat as well, the middle order and even the tail managed to get some big hits away. They simply lost too many wickets in the Powerplay which pegged them back and from there on, it was always going to be a bridge too far. Ayaan Khan starred with a 36-run knock and Mehran Khan got a fine cameo of 27 runs from jsut 16 balls as Oman managed to avoid getting bundled out and scored a few useful runs towards the end.
Having put on 164 runs on the back of a scintillating knock from Marcus Stoinis and a gritty fifty from David Warner, Australia managed to pick up wickets in the Powerplay. Mitchell Starc was upbeat after a fine few performances at the backend of the Indian T20 League and picked up a wicket in the first over and set the tone for the rest of the bowlers. Marcus Stoinis followed his heroics with the bat by picking up a couple of quick wickets and the Adam Zampa followed it up with a couple of wickets of his own. Zampa did get hit for a few boundaries and so did Josh Hazlewood but by then the damage had been done. Stoinis finished with three wickets and became only the third player in a Men's T20 World Cup game to score a fifty and pick three wickets as Nathan Ellis closed out the innings with a couple of wickets to his name as well.
Australia are up and running in their quest to hold three major Men's international accolades at the same time having already bagged the World test Championship and the ODI World Cup last year but it was a hard-fought win against a gritty Oman side. It might look straightforward on paper given the 39-run victory margin but the Aussies had to dig deep, especially with the bat to get this win.

Marcus Stoinis To Mehran Khan OUT!
OUT! Splendid work in the field removes Mehran Khan from the middle. Low full toss in middle, Mehran Khan presents a full face of his bat and looks to clear the fence towards wide long on but Tim David had other ideas as he rund to his right gathers it in the playing area lifts it as his momentum takes him over the fence jumps back in and takes it cleanly. Tim takes a good rally catch and sees the back of Mehran Khan.
Is that a clean catch? Tim David seems to have done a stellar job on the boundary rope. The umpires however go upstairs and the replays confirm that David did everything right, he takes the catch inside the ropes and is able to lob it back in before crossing the ropes and then hops back in to take it safely. OUT!

Time for a drinks break. Australia have stamped their authority in this game with clinical bowling performance in the first 10 overs. The Aussies have not lt Oman batters settle in and have kept taking wickets regularly. Oman now needs to keep in mind about the NRR and they would be looking to take the game as deep as they could.

FOUR! That is nicely played! On the shorter side and turning in from outside off, Khalid Kail just waits on the back foot and dabs it down between point and short third for a lovely boundary.

Marcus Stoinis To Aqib Ilyas OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND GONE! A lovely piece of bowling and Marcus Stoinis has the last laugh as he sends the Oman skipper back to the hut. Lovely length, just a bit full and on off stump, this one pitches and seams away off the deck. Aqib Ilyas is drawn forward but the ball isn't all that full and the seam movement means the outside edge is found. The ball nestles into the mitts of Matthew Wade behind the stumps and Oman have lost their third wicket at the end of the Powerplay.

SIX! Aqib Ilyas giving Marcus Stoinis a taste of his own medicine and that has landed just beyond the pool. Short of a length and outside off, Aqib Ilyas shuffles across to the off side and pulls it away a bit flat and over deep square leg for a maximum.

Nathan Ellis To Kashyap Prajapati OUT!
OUT! LBW! Looked dead straight and the finger is raised after the appeal! There were two noises though and Kashyap Prajapati has taken the review. Nathan Ellis dishes out the quicker one again and bowls it full on middle, angling it back in. Kashyap Prajapati looks to clear the front leg and heave across the line but seems to be beaten on the inside edge. The third umpire is called in and there's no bat involved as Ball Tracking comes up with umpire's call on the wickets and the onfield decision will stand.

Mitchell Starc To Aqib Ilyas
Wow, a comedy of errors out there in the middle and eventually, Aqib Ilyas survives. Full and shaping into the pads, Aqib Ilyas misses the tuck and the ball goes off the pads in front of square leg. Ilyas wants the run but is left stranded midway on the crease. Travis Head there picks up the ball but ends up just lobbing a throw at the keeper's end which Matthew Wade is unable to collect. Glenn Maxwell who is backing up pick up the ball and under-arms it on the stumps. The replays though show that Ilyas had made it back by then.

Mitchell Starc To Aqib Ilyas
Good review! Another appeal for LBW and this time, the finger goes up. Aqib Ilyas has reviewed it pretty quickly. On a fullish lenght at 141.4 clicks and swinging back in from leg stump, Aqib Ilyas misses the flick and gets hit on the pads, this one seems to be shaping down the leg side. No bat involved and Ball Tracking shows that it was pitching outside leg stump and the onfield call is overturned. NOT OUT!

Mitchell Starc To Pratik Athavale OUT!
OUT! LBW! A brute of a delivery from Mitchell Starc as he gets the fuller one to swing back in late from middle stump. Pratik Athavale looks to jam it out but seems to have got an inside edge onto the pads. A huge appeal for LBW but the umpire says no. Was it pad first? There were two noises and eventually, Mitchell Marsh does take the review. The replays though show that it was pad first and Ball Tracking comes up with three reds. Pratik Athavale departs for a golden duck and Starc is underway in his very first over.
