Oman T20I series 2019 kickstarts tomorrow morning with the first game scheduled to be played between the hosts Oman and Hong Kong at Al Amerat Cricket Ground. A total of five teams Nepal, Netherlands, Ireland, Hong Kong and Oman are participating in the multi-nation T20I series.
The series comes as a dress rehearsal for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers which is slated to start from October 18.

The clash will begin at 11:00 AM IST.
