Oman vs United Arab Emirates CWC 2023 Qualifier 8th Match Highlights

Muhammad Waseem:

To be honest, we started well but didn’t bowl well in the middle overs. We aimed for 260-270 with the bat, wicket was slow. We were going well but collapsed in the middle, Ayaan finished well. Pitch was the same in the second innings, we had to be more disciplined with the ball and in the field. Our spinners bowled okay but Aayan and Nadeem played well.

Zeeshan Maqsood:

The way the boys are playing, we are happy. They are putting so much in all departments, our preparation’s been great, players are taking responsibility and that’s been the key. The way Aqib and Shoaib batted was key. Later on Ayaan and Nadeem played well. When Shoaib came off and I played a bad shot, there was pressure. But on that track, if you get set bowlers can’t get you out. We have games against Sri Lanka and Scotland, we need to play well and carry that confidence forward.

Shoaib Khan, POTM:

It was a good toss to win. We executed our plans very nicely. The wicket was same in both innings. Our plan was simple: to stay in as long as possible and rotate strike when spinners bowl. I had cramps. My partner Aqib gave me good support, told me to stay in the crease and that’ll take us to the win.
