When and where:
Kuwait will take on Saudi Arabia in the Western Region T20, on (January 24) at Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Oman.
Kuwait was considered one of the heavyweights of this tournament but they are coming off the narrowest of losses in the last game. The game was tied at the end of regulation time and they saw themselves on the losing side in the super-over. However, a lot of lessons can be learnt from that loss and the management will be making sure that the players are still fired up and ready to give it their all for the cause.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia was finally able to win the first game of the tournament after two consecutive losses. They are still trying things out and will be experimenting, but it appears that the combination they chose in the last contest worked fine. Every single player had a role to play and this is the kind of balance that is required to compete in tournaments such as the one they are a part of.
The match will begin at 11:00 AM IST.
