So that meets the end of Oman in the journey of the World Cup Qualifiers. West Indies still have a contest against Sri Lanka in the Qualifiers and will look to end with some pride. This was Arijit Kundu and AkshayaKrishna Polya with the live coverage alongside scorer/analyst Dushyant Madhukar Kumar. Stay tuned to the network for all the other extravaganza- TNPL, BAN vs AFG ODIs, ENG-W vs AUS-W, and much more... Goodbye!!
Shai Hope (West Indies Captain): "Yeah, a little too late. But I am happy with the strides we have taken. We have done well today. So I am happy with the performance.

In International cricket there is no walk over. Every other side performs well and every other side have quality performers. So we needed to play our best game and happy that we did that today.

Past is past. We were not up to the mark in the previous games. But today we played well and credit to the guys to making a great come back. Just said the guys to enjoy their time out in the middle and glad that they did. We will try to give our best once again in the last fixture.

Brandon King is a quality performer. Isn't it? Today, he has played a brilliant innings and playing his natural game. Happy to see him play the way he did. It is good for the batting group. We will try to be consistent moving forward. Thank you."
Aqib Ilyas (Oman Captain): "Yeah, I feel we ran short of the runs. We had to get around 300 plus. One single runout changes the game but we got three today. Yeah exactly, many Test sides have been out of their form but Oman have shown some good character. We didn't have individual performers but there were collective performances from the team. When you play such a tournament, you know where you are standing as a unit. 

Oman is going to play the Emerging Cup which is going to happen in Sri Lanka. And then, we have to play the T20 World Cup Qualifiers I guess which is happening in Nepal."
Brandon King: "Yeah, I mean, I have practised hard. But I just don't think much. I play on the merit of the ball and react to how the bowlers are bowling at me. This is obviously a monumental milestone in my career. It is about staying patient and waiting for the right moment and right ball and pouncing on it. 

Credit to the bowlers for restricting them for such a total. Since the pressure was less, it was easy to concentrate on your game.

As I said, it is about being calm, and doing the routines and keeping the process going. I have gotten a great support from the coaching staff and we work together towards the improvement. It is all about waiting for the opportunity and seizing on that.

I will keep working hard in the nets and get more and more runs in the upcoming matches. Obviously, the goal is stay there and see the team over the line but it doesn't happen every time. So it is important to score as many as possible while you are out there. You try to assess the conditions and then let your instincts take over."   
Player of the Match: Brandon King
7:10 PM IST, 3:40 PM Local Time: Time for the presentation ceremony...
7:04 PM IST, 3:34 PM Local Time: A paradigm shift for the West Indies as they fetch their first victory in the Super Six stages of the 2023 World Cup Qualifiers. We got to see some intent from the Men in Maroon right from the start of the game. Talk about the fielding, talk about the bowling, and then of the batting, the West Indies side have been magnificent in all the dimensions. They defeat Oman comprehensively by seven wickets. This was the first ODI game against Oman for West Indies and the Daren Sammy-coached side emerged victorious. 

In the process to tame down a target of 222 runs, West Indies lost Johnson Charles quite early. Despite the jolt, Brandon King and Keacy Carty took their time and steadied the ship when the Oman bowling attack was trying to break through loopholes. An 80 runs partnership followed and then it was Carty who was run-out in a controversial fashion. The bail was dislodged but came off a bit late while the bat was just flirting around the popping crease. 

It was followed by another scintillating partnership where skipper Shai Hope (63* off 65) came into the scene and built a 96 runs partnership with Brandon King. The Kingston CC graduated bloke went on to amass a ton while the Windies captain notched up a half-century. 

The middle order of West Indies was brilliant in capitalizing on the looseners and finding the boundaries every now and then with time. Nicholas Pooran joined the party after King (100 off 104) was dismissed post his milestone. He ensured no more damage and steered his side past the finishing line with a 39 runs stand with Hope. Bilal Khan and Kaleemullah were the only wicket-takers.

Oman were pushed on the backfoot halfway through the first innings and it was the 85 runs partnership between Shoaib Khan and Surajkumar that revived the innings for the Asian nation. Barring this, there were just three brisk partnerships; 36 runs- between Ayaan Khan and Mohammad Nadeem, 30 runs- between Kashyap Prajapati and Ayaan Khan, and lastly just 26 runs between Prajapati and Jatinder Singh. 

After winning the toss and choosing to bowl first, Romario Shepherd with the new ball turned out bliss. He initiated the wicket of Jatinder Singh early and Kyle Mayers succeeded in cleaning up stand-in skipper Aqib Ilyas. 

The spin trio of West Indies - Akeal Hosein, Kevin Sinclair, and Roston Chase operated in the middle overs, mixed with Shepherd’s odd spells. It helped them drown the Oman side to 116-6 at one stage. Half-centuries from Shoaib Khan and Surajkumar each assisted the Asian side to go past the 200 runs respectable mark. 

Shepherd was the peak of the bowler with a three-wicket haul, followed by two wickets from Kyle Mayers. Kevin Sinclair took a lone wicket as well. The rest were run-outs. 

Stay tuned for the post-match presentation and player sayings... 🗣
39.4 M Nadeem to N Pooran
1 West Indies beat Oman by 7 wickets and get their first win in the Super Six stage of this competition. Fuller-length delivery outside off. Pooran lunges forward and drives it to deep cover for a single. And with this Oman will finish on the bottom of the Super Six points table with zero wins. Finally, something to cheer for the Windies and the win was set-up by their bowlers earlier and Brandon King just followed it up with a brilliant century. Crucial two points that will definitely lift West Indies' confidence moving into their last game in the competition.
