Middle-order batsman Shamim Hossain believes the Bangladesh batters will do well on the Oman pitches.

The confidence has been driven from Bangladesh’s convincing 60-run win in the practice game against Oman A team at Oman Cricket Academy Friday.

Bangladesh first posted a huge total of 207 riding on half centuries from openers Liton Das and Mohammad Naim, and was later booted with a flashy 15-ball 49 by Nurul Hasan.

Visitors Bangladesh later restricted Oman A to 147 for nine to complete a successful practice game. 

“We had a very good start with the bat. Naim and Liton bhai got us the start and by the end Sohan [Nurul] bhai gave the finishing. It was a good batting show and the wicket was good to play on. The batters looked comfortable. I am hopeful that our batters will do well on the wickets here [in Oman],” said Shamim to the media after the warm up game.

Shamim remained unbeaten on a 10-ball 19.

In the last 12 deliveries of the innings, Shamim and Nurul jointly hammered seven over boundaries off which Nurul got the most – five.

Bangladesh in total slammed 13 over boundaries in the innings and scored 81 in the last five overs. 

“I have no option but to go for boundaries because I get to bat mostly after 15 overs. So I have the aim to finish the innings for the team,” said Shamim.

Oman in pursuit of 208 ended up with 147 losing eight wickets in 20 overs.

Left-arm pacer Shariful Islam grabbed the most wickets for Bangladesh - three - while right-arm seamer Saifuddin picked up two.

Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan and Afif Hossain grabbed a wicket each.

“The bowlers played their part well too. The team combination looked good in this game. There was a good communication between the players,” said ICC U-19 World Cup winning member Shamim.

Bangladesh team will travel to Dubai Sunday to take part in two official practice games on Tuesday and Thursday against Sri Lanka and Ireland respectively.

Two key members of the squad – Shakib al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman - will join the team in the UAE on the same day following their stint in the ongoing Indian Premier League T20.

Mahmudullah and his troop will then return to Oman on October 15 to participate in the qualifier stage and will face Scotland in their first qualifier game on October 17 at Al Amerat Cricket Stadium in Muscat.

Bangladesh will then face Oman and Papua New Guinea on October 19 and 21 respectively at the same venue in the qualifying stage of the T20 World Cup.
