Bangladesh started their ICC T20 World Cup 2021 campaign with a stunning victory over Oman A in a warm up match. After posting a massive total of 207 for 4, an all round display from the bowlers gave a 60-run win.

Two opener Mohammad Naim and Liton Das gave a flying start. They added 102 runs before Liton dismissed for 53 off just 33 balls. But a middle order batting collapse put Bangladesh in trouble and reduced to 124 for 4. Then came the stroke-full knock from Nurul Hasan Sohan who played a unbeaten knock of 49 in just 15 balls including 7 sixes. Shamim was the other not out batsman on 19.

Nasum Ahmed brought the first breakthrough in the first over. Other bowlers also joined in the wickets tally as Oman A batsmen found it difficult to score adjusting to the require rate. They were managed to post 147 for 9. Shoriful Islam picked up 3 wickets for 30.
