Match 5, SCO vs PNG: Preview, Match Details, Pitch Report, Probable XIs, Match Prediction and Fantasy Picks
After pulling off a miraculous win in the opening game against Bangladesh Scotland would look to carry the winning momentum in the upcoming tie against Papua New Guinea. Batting first, Scots posted 140 runs on the board in their quota of 20 overs. Bangladesh in reply looked in control of the chase at the halfway mark but the Scottish bowlers showed great discipline and determination to dismantle the tigers batting unit. Bradley Wheal was the pick of the bowlers for Scotland. He ended the match with the figures of 3-24. Wheal enjoyed good support from other Scottish bowlers who chipped in with constant breakthroughs. While Scotland started their campaign on a winning note, Papua New Guinea had the worst possible starts to the tournament. PNG faced hosts Oman in their opening game. After winning the toss Oman skipper Zeeshan Maqsood elected to field first. The skipper led from the front and scalped 4 wickets to peg back the opposition. Omani openers then put up a century stand to register a dominant 10 wicket victory. PNG will have to be at their absolute best when they take the field against a spirited Scotlant unit. Ahead of this crucial encounter let’s have a look at how these two sides will fare out in today’s clash.
