When and where:
Bahrain will take on Maldives in the ACC Western Region T20, on (January 21) at Al Amarat, Oman.
Bahrain are coming off a good win over Saudi Arabia. They won that game by a margin of 41 runs, and it saw them post a high total of 176 with the help of their batsman. In fact, their bowlers too chimed in and were able to restrict the opposition to a lowly total of 135. This victory is a morale booster for the players who now know what to do in order to register wins in this tournament.
On the other hand, Maldives were thoroughly outclassed by Kuwait. The team lost the game by eight wickets, and it was apparent that they are unable to put two and two together. The fact of the matter is that they are still relatively inexperienced in international cricket, and maybe such fixture are going to serve as litmus test for the players.
The match will begin at 11:00 AM IST.
