The 46th ODI of the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 will take place between PNG and Scotland at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Muscat, Oman.


Current Form Scotland:

Scotland have beaten Oman by 18 runs in their last fixture.

Batting first, Scotland put on a huge total of 273 for 5 in 50 overs. Kyle Coetzer scored 60 off 63 at the top of the order. In the middle order, Richie Berrington played a brilliant knock of 97 off just 87 deliveries. His innings included 5 huge maximums. On the back of this gutsy show by Berrington, Scotland got to a very safe score of 273.

Chasing 273, Oman got off to a great start as the opener Jatinder Singh smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground for his 64 runs. While he was at crease, Oman looked to be favorites. However, once he was dismissed, the rest of the middle order fell like a pack of cards. Sandeep Goud put on a fight towards the end with his knock of 54 but it was not enough as Scotland succeeded in restricting Oman to 255, winning the match by 18 runs.

Current Form PNG:

PNG have lost their last match to Oman by a huge margin of 110 runs.

PNG won the toss and asked Oman to have a bat first. PNG bowlers were successful in providing the early blow in the form of Jatinder Singh. However, they could not chip in with more wickets to peg Oman back. Oman middle order contributed in decent numbers and laid the platform for a bigger total. Suraj Kumar played a fantastic knock of 62 in 70 balls to take Oman to a total of 250 for 7 in their 50 overs.


Chasing 250, PNG lost the opener Gaudi Toka early on. Lega Siaka showed some promise with his knock of 22 but his stay was cut short by Zeeshan Maqsood who cleaned him up in the 9th over. Apart from the lower order batter Jason Kila, who made 36 off 50 balls, no other batter showed any resistance against the Oman bowling attack. In the end, PNG were bowled out for 140 as they lost the match by 110 runs. Oman captain Zeeshan Maqsood picked up 4 important wickets in the match.
