Khawar had returned home for personal reasons earlier this week having featured in both of his side’s opening games against Kenya, which Oman lost by seven runs, and the seven-wicket victory over Canada. The Oman management had at the time requested Khawar to be replaced by Arun Poulose, which was approved, but have now requested Khawar’s reinstatement. Following a meeting, the ETC has facilitated Khawar’s return on compassionate grounds.
Oman will face UAE in New Williamfield, Stirling today and will next face Scotland in Group B of the ICC World Twenty 20 Qualifier 2015 at Heriot’s, Edinburgh on Saturday. Visit http://www.icc-cricket.com/world-t20-qualifier for details.
