Oman gears up for high-profile Quadrangular Series: Coach Mendis



 The Sultanate is gearing up to host its biggest ever cricket competition — the Quadrangular Series involving Ireland, Scotland, Netherlands and Oman — in February at Amerat’s beautiful cricket ground and the hosts are eager to prove that their team is as good as its reputation.

While Ireland, which was recently granted Test status by ICC, will arrive in Oman in the first week of next month, the Quadrangular Series will start on February 13, culminating on the 17th with two games scheduled everyday followed by a rest day. The team with the highest points will be declared the winner.

In the middle of its own T20 domestic league, Oman Cricket has also started a training camp to ensure its players are in good shape and top form to compete with the high profile European teams.

“We had switched over to the T20 league from our 50-over competition in order to prepare hard for the forthcoming Quadrangular Series. Our boys will now be in a proper frame of mind to play a big T20 series,” said Duleep Mendis, Oman coach.
