Oman’s sensational opening batsman Jatinder Singh was keen to play against India’s premium fast bowling quick Jasprit Bumrah if his side makes it to the Superleague stages. Oman put up a fantastic all-around performance against the Papua New Guinea side, and their spirited effort was very much visible as well.
They restricted Papua New Guinea to 129 for the loss of 9 wickets in their 20 overs quota and chased down the target in just 13.4 overs. It was a dominating performance from one of the hosts for this T20 World Cup 2021, and they will have their eye on making it to the Super 12 stages now. With Bangladesh losing to Scotland in their opening fixture, Oman now has to win their game against Bangladesh, which will almost seal them a position for the Super 12 stages.
I Wish To Play Against India Someday – Jatinder Singh
Jatinder Singh, in his speech to the Indian Express, mentioned that the Oman side is very confident of winning against one of the Asian powerhouses of Bangladesh. He also reckoned that playing against India is a dream to him and has been waiting to face Jasprit Bumrah for a long time. He admitted that his favourite shot is reverse sweep and was keen to execute it against the quality Indian spin attack.
“The team is confident of winning against Bangladesh. I wish to play against India someday and would like to face Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling. My favorite shot is reverse sweep and I would like to reverse sweep Indian spinners too,” Jatinder Singh told to Indian express.
Jatinder Singh And Zeeshan Maqsood Stars For Oman
Jatinder Singh played an excellent knock of 73 off just 42 deliveries at the top of the order for the Oman side and hit 7 fours and 4 sixes in his quickfire innings. Meanwhile, in the bowling department, it was totally Zeeshan Maqsood who owned the day with a four-wicket spell. The left-arm spinner led the side from the front with his excellent, skilful bowling.
