Oman, featuring in their second-ever T20 World Cup, will be hopeful of going past the group stage for the first time, especially now that they are co-hosting the marquee event. Oman are unique to all the other 15 teams participating, in the sense that they are the only side to have named a squad without any reserve players. Led by the veteran Zeeshan Maqsood, Oman backed players with experience as 11 of their 15-member squad played in their successful qualifying campaign two years ago. Oman will kick off their campaign against Papua New Guinea in the T20 World Cup curtain-raiser on October 17 in Muscat.
Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Mohammad Nadeem, Ayaan Khan, Suraj Kumar, Sandeep Goud, Nester Dhamba, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Naseem Khushi, Sufyan Mehmood, Fayyaz Butt, Khurram Khan
