After women's day, Oman's day

There was a game between South Africa and Australia on in Cape Town even as the lower-profile match between Ireland and Oman twisted and turned in Dharamsala.

Some of Oman’s cricketers may not fit the stereotype of the muscled modern athlete, but boy they showed they can play.

The nail-biting win over Ireland was the latest in a growing list of scalps.

The congratulatory messages poured in soon after the victory…

Others compared Oman’s record with more familiar Associates…

… while some said this highlighted the progress Associates have made.

There might be plenty of people going gaga after the success, but Oman’s captain wasn’t among them.
