Australia vs Oman (Match 10) – Highlights


In this piece, we’ll cover Australia’s standout moments in their T20 World Cup 2024 opener against Oman on a challenging Barbados pitch. The match was a showcase of skill, resilience, and strategic play, ultimately leading to Australia’s 39-run victory. Marcus Stoinis and David Warner emerged as the heroes, rescuing the team from a precarious position and leading them to a formidable total.


Australia’s innings started on a shaky note. The tricky Barbados pitch proved to be a challenge, and Australia found themselves in trouble at 50 for 3. Glenn Maxwell’s golden duck added to the pressure, continuing his streak of poor form with the bat. The situation seemed grim, but Marcus Stoinis and David Warner stepped up to the plate.


Stoinis and Warner put together a crucial 102-run partnership off 64 balls. The match’s pivotal moment came from this partnership. Stoinis, after being dropped on 9, capitalized on his second chance, hitting six sixes and transforming a slow start into a dominant performance. Warner, on the other hand, anchored the innings, showcasing his experience and composure.


While Stoinis was the aggressor, Warner played a steady hand, reaching a 46-ball fifty. In the process, he surpassed former captain Aaron Finch to become Australia’s leading run-scorer in men’s T20Is. Finch, now a broadcaster, acknowledged Warner’s milestone despite a humorous mix-up where Warner headed towards the Oman dressing room after being dismissed.


Oman was set a target of 165 runs, a formidable task on the Barbados pitch. Mitchell Starc’s first over was inconsistent but included a crucial lbw dismissal of Athavale, confirmed via DRS. Oman had some respite when Ilyas’s lbw decision was overturned, but their chase was fraught with challenges.


Stoinis not only excelled with the bat but also shone with the ball. Achieving a rare feat of scoring a fifty and taking three wickets in a T20 World Cup match, Stoinis joined the ranks of Shane Watson and Dwayne Bravo. His performance was instrumental in securing Australia’s victory.


Despite the early setbacks, Oman showed spirit. Ayaan hit two sixes off Adam Zampa, and Mehran Khan helped Oman surpass 100. However, Australia’s efficient bowling, highlighted by Stoinis’ all-round performance and Starc’s early breakthroughs, ensured a well-fought win.


Mitchell Starc made an immediate impact, taking a wicket with a low full toss in the opening over. Although he had to leave the field due to cramp, he set the tone for Australia’s bowling attack. Nathan Ellis, selected over the rested Pat Cummins, took his first World Cup wicket in his initial over, making a strong impression.


Throughout Australia’s innings, the match remained competitive. The pitch made scoring difficult, and after the powerplay, Australia’s total was their lowest in the last 15 T20Is since the previous World Cup. Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh both struggled to find rhythm, and Maxwell’s first-ball dismissal by Mehran Khan added to the drama.


Maxwell’s dismissal on his first ball marked his fifth duck in his last 10 T20 innings. Coming off a poor IPL season, Maxwell’s form continues to be a concern for Australia. His dismissal was a significant moment for Oman, boosting their morale.
