Oman and the United States secured one-day status by sealing promotion from the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cricket League Division Two with further victories today in Namibia.
Oman had enjoyed three straight wins prior to their meeting with the host nation at Wanderers Affies Park in Windhoek.
Batting first, Namibia achieved a score of 213 from their 50 overs.
It proved Oman’s toughest task to date, but they reached the target with five balls to spare.
The result guaranteed Oman a place in the final on Saturday (April 27).
The US look best-placed to join them after easing to victory against Hong Kong, having set their opponents a target of 281 to win.
Hong Kong could only muster 196 in reply.
The US lie second in the standings with three wins and one defeat, while Namibia are third with two wins and two defeats.
