The United States of America (USA) will square off against Oman in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 2019-2023 at Prairie View Cricket Complex in Houston on Wednesday, June 8. The first match of the Tri-Nation Series will start at 9:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Led by Monank Patel, USA have registered nine wins and 11 losses in the 20 matches that they have played in the tournament so far. With 18 points from 20 matches, USA are currently placed fourth in the standings.
USA need to register more wins as only the top three teams from the tournament will advance to the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier tournament in 2023 while the four bottom-placed sides will advance to the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier playoffs, to be played later this year.
On the other hand, Oman have been the most dominant team in the ongoing tournament, having secured 19 wins in 32 matches. The Zeeshan Maqsood-led side are currently at the top of the standings with 40 points and have almost qualified for the 2023 Cricket World Cup Qualifier tournament.

Oman have a dominant head-to-head record against the USA of late, having won their last four meetings. Oman secured a 72-run victory in their previous meeting in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2. Going by recent form and past head-to-head record, Oman will start as overwhelming favourites against USA on Wednesday.
