Live Scores - PNG vs Oman - Match 75

Current Form PNG:

PNG lost their last outing against Scotland by a big margin of 162 runs.

PNG won the toss and elected to field first. All went well for PNG until the 30th over as they had Scotland 3 down for 117 runs. Post this period, George Munsey and Richie Berrington simply pummeled the bowlers to all parts of the ground. Munsey made 79 off 62 balls while Berrington played a match winning innings of 114 runs. Scotland got to a huge total of 284 for 3 in 50 overs.

Chasing 284, PNG lost 5 wickets for just 49 runs and they simply couldn't recover from that phase. Sese Bau tried his best with a knock of 30 but it wasn't enough as Scottish bowlers made life really difficult for the PNG batters and didn't give away freebies. Eventually, PNG were bowled out for 122 in the 36th over, losing the match by 162 runs.

Current Form Oman:

Oman suffered an agonizing last over defeat against Scotland in their last game.

Scotland won the toss and elected to bat first. The start was good for the Scots as they collected 40 runs for the first wicket. The last match hero for Scotland Richie Berrington got the start but failed to convert it as he fell to Kaleemullah for 27. George Munsey played a brilliant knock of 62 in 74 balls to ensure Scotland got to a safe target of 215 before being bowled out.

Chasing 215, Oman started off well with the opener Jatinder Singh smashing 53 off 71 balls before he was dismissed by Sharif. Zeeshan Maqsood also played a good hand and made 46. The other middle order batters simply lost their wickets when it mattered the most. Ayaan Khan kept one end intact and found gaps with ease. With only 7 runs needed in 2 overs with 3 wickets in hand, Oman looked hot favourites. A tight over by Mark Watt conceding only 1 run accompanied with 2 wickets that fell in the over got Oman in trouble. Oman thus needed 6 runs off the last over with only 1 wicket in hand. Ayaan Khan tried to smash the fourth ball of the over for a boundary but ended up edging the ball high up and the catch was safely pouched by Hamza Tahir as Oman fell short by just 4 runs.
