The first team to be eliminated from the T20 World Cup tournament had its Super 8 round dream shattered

There have been many ups and downs in the T20 World Cup. Even the easy target of 119 runs given by India to Pakistan could not be achieved. There is a lot of confusion about the pitches. In such a situation, it is impossible to say which team will prevail over the other. In this, the category is increasing for the Super 8 round. The battle of teams has started to get a place in the Super 8 round. Meanwhile, one team out of 20 has been officially eliminated. Oman got out of Group B. Oman has lost three of its opening three matches in the league. So winning the last match also does not mean anything. Therefore, it has officially become the first team to be eliminated from this tournament.

Group B of the T20 World Cup includes Scotland, Australia, Namibia, England and Oman. Scotland and Oman faced each other in the league round of this group. Oman batted first and scored 150 runs for 7 wickets in 20 overs and set a target of 151 runs for victory. Scotland completed this challenge with 41 balls remaining. Scotland’s batsmen batted aggressively and completed this target in 13.1 overs. Therefore, Scotland has benefited in net run rate. So England’s next journey has become even worse. England has played two matches so far and has only 1 point. Whereas Scotland has earned 5 points in three matches. Even if England wins the next two matches, it will still have five points. Since Scotland’s net run rate is good, England may get a shock.
