Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Round 2 Match 2 World Cup League 2 - Oman vs Papua New Guinea, Match 44
The 44th ODI of the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 will take place between Oman and Papua New Guinea at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Muscat, Oman.
Current Form PNG:
PNG lost their last match to Scotland by 6 wickets.
Scotland won the toss and elected to field.
The start for PNG was fabulous as Lega Siaka and captain Assad Vala continued to find the gaps and boundaries despite of an early fall of first wicket. Once Siaka was adjudged LBW, the run rate slowed down. At one point, PNG were 125 for 8, but Chad Soper and Damien Ravu played brilliantly to ensure PNG crossed the 180+ mark. In the end, PNG got to a respectable total of 197.
In reply, Scotland got off to a fantastic start as the opening pair got involved in a partnership of 78 runs for the first wicket. Matthew Cross was brilliant and he scored 70 off 75 balls. In the end, Scotland chased the total quite comfortably with 6 wickets in hand.
Current Form Oman:
Oman have been looking really good in their last few encounters. They recently beat USA by 72 runs. Their captain Zeeshan Maqsood seems to be in a commanding form and the other batters are simply giving him a good company to raise the winning flag.
At their home ground, Oman will be a very hard opposition for PNG to beat.
Let’s have a look at the squads:
Oman: Zeeshan Maqsood (c), Aqib Ilyas, Jatinder Singh, Khawar Ali, Mohammad Nadeem, Ayaan Khan, Suraj Kumar, Sandeep Goud, Nester Dhamba, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Naseem Khushi, Sufyan Mehmood, Fayyaz Butt, Khurram Khan
PNG - Assad Vala (Captain), Charles Amini, Hiri Hiri, Norman Vanua, Tony Ura, J. Gardner, J. Kila, K. Vagi Morea, Chad Soper, Lega Siaka, Damien Ravu, Nosaina Pokana, Gaudi Toka, Kiplin Doriga(Wicket-Keeper), Sese Bau, Simon Atai
