Oman moves to top but can’t satisfy coach Mendis


Oman shot to the top of the table with another close victory but coach Duleep Mendis is more concerned than happy at the way his team is winning.

Oman beat Kenya by 5 wickets in its first WCL 3 assignment but took almost 43 overs to chase down a target on 165 on home turf. The home side bowled brilliantly against, restricting Singapore to 185 but lost six wickets on what looked like a good batting track. Against Denmark yesterday, Oman achieved a modest victory target of 186 with only 16 balls and three wickets in hand.

Is Mendis happy at getting 6 points out of 3 games or worried at the way they were achieved?

“Naturally I have to be happy because we have now got three wins out of three games but the way we are getting those victories is not very satisfying. I want the team to win in a more convincing manner,” said Mendis after Oman beat Denmark yesterday.
