History of Oman Cricket Academy Ground

Oman Cricket Academy Ground is the youngest venue being used at the T20 World Cup. Also known as Al Amerat Cricket Stadium, it only opened in 2012. Earlier this year, the stadium won the right to host Test cricket from the ICC. This T20 World Cup is the first time Muscat has hosted a major ICC tournament.

Since 2019, the ground has hosted smaller international T20 tournaments such as the ACC Western Region T20, the Oman Quadrangular Series and the Pentangular T20 Series.

Stadium characteristics

A lot of money has been invested in the Oman Cricket Academy Ground so it can host World Cup matches. Floodlights have been installed, capacity has increased to 4,000 and there is a new digital scoreboard.

Thanks to the floodlights, three of the six World Cup matches in Oman will be day-night games. All six games will be played on the ground’s Ministry Turf 1 pitch.

Games hosted at Oman Cricket Academy Ground

The Oman Cricket Academy Ground saw a lot of T20I cricket just before the Covid-19 pandemic. It hosted 22 matches during 2019.

The most recent tournament here was the ACC Western Region T20 tournament in early 2020. Eight teams – including Oman – played 15 matches at the ground’s Ministry Turf 1 and Ministry Turf 2 pitches.

Oman were eliminated in the group stage, despite winning two of their three matches. UAE and Kuwait each won a semi-final, before UAE won the final by a massive 102 runs.
