The Playoff 2 in the ICC World T20 qualifiers will take place between Namibia and Oman at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The African nation started off the campaign with consecutive defeats to Netherlands and Papua New Guinea. Nevertheless, they got back into the mix with four straight wins. As a result of their recent success, Namibia finds itself at the third spot in Group A.
Meanwhile, Oman currently finds itself at the second spot in Group B. Oman is on the back of four wins off their first five games. Their most recent game against Jersey ended in a 14 run loss. Had Oman won the game, they would have directly qualified for the mega event.
Having said that, the winner of Playoff 2 will book a spot for the ICC World T20 in Australia next year. The team that loses gets to square off against Hong Kong for Playoff 4.
