The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 gets underway with Oman taking on debutants Papua New Guinea in the first Group Stage match. With only four teams in each group and the top two qualifying for the Super 12s, every match counts and both sides know a win is crucial. Join The Roar for live scores from 9pm (AEDT).

While some might feel that the Group Stage isn’t worth following as it’s not until the Super 12s that the big boys get involved, this is where the legendary stories begin. Sure Oman and Papua New Guinea won’t win the World Cup but by making it through to the next round, they can secure prize money almost $100,000 – for these teams, that is a make or break amount of money.

Oman were predicted to have a pretty straightforward route through qualification to the World Cup but after a final day slip up in the qualifying tournament, they had to go into the playoffs. They lost their first match against Namibia before managing to hold their nerve in the second chance eliminator against Hong Kong.

They’ve got some talented players but perhaps their real diamond is their pace man Bilal Khan. There aren’t too many bowlers at the Associate level who hit speeds of over 140 kph but Khan is able to combine this consistent pace with swing and control. He’s good with the new ball and great at the death when his yorkers often derail a batting side’s aspirations.

The PNG Barramundi might be debutants but they should not be taken lightly. They had an impressive qualifying campaign winning five of their six games and earning automatic qualification.

There are some incredible stories about the rise of cricket in PNG and the bond that this team shares is something quite special. Whilst they do have talented batsmen and bowlers, PNG are a rare side that use their athletic fielding and fitness to build uncomfortable pressure on batting sides.

One player to keep an eye on is Norman Vanua. Not only is the all-rounder the most likely PNG player to clear the ropes with his clean, powerful hitting, but PNG will also look to him for key wickets at the death.

This isn’t an unimportant, boring match between two minnows. This is where the Disney movie begins!
