The 2019 Oman T20 Pentangular Series has kicked off a few days back and every team has played 2 games each so far. Two games are scheduled for today and Ireland will be in action too, having won one and lost one so far in the tournament. Now, they play Hong Kong, the latter yet to register a victory in this tournament, having lost both previous games this tournament.
Ireland obviously have more experienced players but Hong Kong will have more experience of playing in this part of the world. In fact, Hong Kong holds most success in recent games between the two countries in T20 internationals.

Youngster Mark Adair has been brilliant with the ball in recent months and has often showed he can hold his own with the bat as well. He picked up 6 wickets in the single test against England and is their leading wicket-taker in this tournament too. Paul Stirling at the top of the order is another player you can’t miss out on, even though he has no wickets and only 27 runs in his 2 games so far. He’s even worth picking as your captain or vice-captain.
With the bat, Kevin O’Brien has been promoted to the top of the order and he hasn’t been bowling in this tournament so far. His experience is something to consider while Andy Balbirnie has been the most talked about Irish player in recent times, with ODI centuries all coming in the last year or so, along with another string of 50+ scores over the last few months.
Pakistani born Waqas Barkat is among the first picks in my fantasy team as the player bats and bowls both. In this tournament so far, he hasn’t picked up a wicket but such pitches provide assistance to leg-spinners like him. He also has scores of 37 and 15 so far. Another specialist bowler you can add to your fantasy team is Kyle Christie who has 3 wickets in 2 games so far this tournament.
Captain Kinchit Shah is someone you can’t miss in your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy picks as he bats and bowls, both. So far, he has 32 runs and a wicket this series but he picked a 4-fer in his last game for Hong Kong CC before this tournament began. 17-year old Nasrulla Rana could be the x-factor bowler in your fantasy team, with 3 wickets in this tournament so far.
