(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Oman tasted success for the first time in the ACC U16 Premier Cup cricket tournament on Monday when it coasted to a 176-run victory against Thailand at the Kinrara Oval in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

Oman skipper and opener Wasim Ali dominated the proceedings after choosing to bat upon winning the toss hammering an unbeaten 141-run knock that set up his team's first win in the competition after a washout and two successive defeats had left the sultanate side at the bottom.

Wasim's match-shaping innings spanned 132 balls featuring 21 boundaries and a six. Wasim with the support of Paritosh Bhatt (40) and Ivan Manjila (27) helped Oman post 264 for five in 40 overs.

Thailand's Kamron Senamontree claimed four for 54 but the rest of the bowling was ineffective. Facing a daunting chase Thailand crashed to 88 all out in 23.3 overs.

Oman's Ubaidullah (5-10) did most of the damage with the ball and was ably supported by Hemil Ganatra (3-24).

Thailand's No 3 batsman Kiatiwut Suttisan produced a brave effort hitting 42 but the rest of the batting wilted under the pressure of chasing a 250-plus target in 40 overs. Oman plays its concluding match against Bahrain on Wednesday at Bayuemas.

Brief scores: Oman 264-5 in 40 overs (Wasim 141 n.o Paritosh 40; Kamron 4-54) beat Thailand 88 in 23.3 overs (Kiatiwut 42; Ubaidullah 5-10 Hemil 3-24).
