Oman 72 for 3 (Jatinder 48, Runsewe 1-4) beat Nigeria 71 (Ajekun 16, Kaleem 4-14, Bilal 3-7) by seven wickets
Thirty seven-year-old Aamir Kaleem took 4 for 14 in his four overs to shoot out Nigeria for 71 and set up Oman's third win in the T20 World Cup qualifier in the UAE.
Bilal Khan(3 for 7) was also among the wickets as Oman dismissed Nigeria in 19.5 overs. Opener Jatinder Singh then hit 48 off 22 balls, helping his side knock off the target in seven overs.
After batting first, Nigeria had a quiet start in the Powerplay, reaching 22 for 1. They moved to 34 for 1 in the eighth over before losing 9 for 37. Opener Daniel Ajekun was the only Nigeria batsman to pass 15; No. 3 Sulaimon Runsewe's 14 was the second-highest score in the first innings
In response, Jatinder cracked nine fours and six before he was dismissed in the last over of the Powerplay. At that point, Oman needed just six runs from 85 balls. Fittingly, it was Kaleem who was at the end, Oman winning by seven wickets and 78 balls to spare.
