Scotland and Papua New Guinea will play in the 5th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Al Amerat. We will cover SCO vs PNG Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Scotland made a brilliant start to the tournament as they won their first match against Bangladesh and are currently at the 2nd position on the Group B, ICC T20 World Cup 2021 points table.
The opener, Munsey, gave a decent start, but the skipper, K Coetzer, returned to the pavilion without scoring anything. The entire middle-order fell early without scoring much, but the lower middle-order batsmen, Chris Greaves and Mark Watt batted brilliantly and helped the team post a decent total.
The bowlers performed better than the batsmen in the first match. Bradley Wheal and Chris Greaves picked up three and two wickets, respectively. The remaining bowlers also contributed generously. Scotland looks to be a decent team and has a good chance of qualifying for the Super 12.
Papua New Guinea:
For the first time, PNG is playing in the ICC T20 World Cup and had to face disappointment as they lost to Oman by ten wickets.
Both the openers, Tony Ura and Lega Siaka, got out for a duck in the last match. Still, at No.3, Skipper Assad Vala batted brilliantly, scoring a fifty along with Charles Amini, who scored 37 runs. The remaining players couldn’t continue the momentum, and they had to settle for a below-par total.
The bowling unit appeared to be in terrible form as they failed to pick up even a wicket and conceded many runs. Not even a single bowler was able to perform up to the mark.
PNG needs to work on their bowling a lot, or else it will be very tough for them to qualify for the Super 12.
