Oman have a national team of mature, personable individuals who bring much credit to themselves and their country. Their rise has been based on having a team of many all-rounders with a couple of highly capable players in specialist positions, along with superb team spirit. And they almost always come through when they’re in close matches.

Oman have all the ingredients for success, including a vigorous national association with strong connections to the government. In October 2012, on land allocated by the Ministry of Sports Affairs, Al Emarat’s turf ground came online, which can only help them in their quest to become a cricketing force. Another ground is being laid for use in 2013. Floodlights are scheduled to be put up in 2014. The government is supportive of cricket activities a fact recognised and reinforced by the Oman becoming ICC Associates in June 2014.

Arab Omanis are being encouraged to play in increasing numbers, there has been a 55% increase from 2012 to 2013 in junior playing numbers. With domestic playing standards on the rise, following an initiative to increase professionalism in the game under Director of Development Duleep Mendis, Oman’s cricketers are back on track at international level.
