Oman will start its campaign in the ACC Mens Premier Cup 2023 as they take on Qatar in the 4th game. Oman has had mixed success and failures in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup League 2. This game would mark Qatar's debut in ODI cricket, and the side will have big expectations.
Oman has experienced players, and they know the demands of this format. They have played against top sides in recent months, which will make them confident. Qatar must approach this game positively and get the best out of its players to pose a challenge to Oman.
Zeeshan Maqsood and his side will feel confident heading into this game. They have played against good sides in the last couple of years, which has helped the players gain exposure. Maqsood would like to see his players take this forward and start the tournament with a win ahead of games against bigger sides.
Jatinder Singh and Aqib Ilyas are good stroke players, and the pair would look to set up a strong platform in this game. Maqsood will have to anchor the innings in the middle order with Shoaib Khan and Mohammad Nadeem. The side will need runs down the order from Ayaan Khan, Fayyaz Butt, and Sandeep Goud.
The bowling attack has to deliver a good start to the side. Kaleemullah and Bilal Khan have to bowl tight spells with the new ball to put Qatar under pressure. Goud and Mohammad Nadeem are experienced bowlers who must use the conditions to their advantage. Fayyaz Butt and Maqsood complete a strong attack for the side.

It will be the first ODI game for Mohammed Rizlan's side, and the camp will have big expectations. They are up against an experienced team, and the Qatari skipper would like a good show from his players. They must have runs on the board to put Oman under pressure in this game.
Imal Liyanage and Kamran Khan have played together for years and would like to lay a strong foundation. Rizlan is the most experienced batsman, and he will need to do well at No. 3 and add runs with Mohammed Nadeem and Gayan Munaweera. Akash Babu, Assad Borham, and Muhammad Tanveer add depth to this line-up.
The new ball pair of Ikramullah Khan and Gayan Munaweera must get early wickets to put Oman under pressure in this game. Mohammed Nadeem must bring his experience to play in this game. The side will also expect good spells from Yousuf Ali, Valeed Veetil, and Tanveer.

Kathmandu will have clear skies on April 19. The track will be flat and allow batsmen to play their strokes. There will be a small margin of effort for the bowlers. The side batting first would need to target a score over 280 runs.
Mulpani Cricket Ground, Kathmandu, is a small venue with short square boundaries and a fast outfield. Batsmen can play their strokes freely at this venue. The track is also two-paced, and spinners have done well. Fast bowlers must bend their backs as there isn't much for them on this surface.
The pitch has been a good one to bat on in the few games it has hosted. Sides batting first have put up big scores at this venue, and spinners have done well in the second innings. The captain winning the toss would like to bat first and have runs on the board.
Qatar will look to start with a win on ODI debut. This game will be a test of their character. They have to bat well and put runs on the board. Oman has experienced players, and they come with batters in good form. We expect a close contest, but Oman will start ahead in this game.
