Oman won the toss and elected to bat in their crucial T20 World Cup Group B clash against Scotland in Antigua on Sunday.

Scotland are currently second in the group standings behind Australia, following a victory over Namibia in their second match which came after their opener against England was washed out.

A Scottish victory on Sunday over an Oman team still seeking their first win of the tournament would pile the pressure on England, who are without a win from two matches.

Oman skipper Aqib Ilyas meanwhile said his decision to bat first on Sunday was designed to put pressure on Scotland.

"We want to set a decent target and put the opposition under pressure," Aqib said.

Teams

Oman: Naseem Khushi, Pratik Athavale, Aqib Ilyas (captain), Zeeshan Maqsood, Khalid Kail, Ayaan Khan, Mehran Khan, Rafiullah, Shakeel Ahmed, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan

Scotland: George Munsey, Michael Jones, Brandon McMullen, Richie Berrington (captain), Matthew Cross, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif

Umpires: Allahuddien Paleker (RSA), Chris Brown (NZL)

TV umpire: Langton Rusere (ZIM)

Match referee: Richie Richardson (WIS)
