OMN vs PNG Team Previews


It wasn't long ago in the context of how fast the things were moving when Oman played Netherlands and Scotland in a T20I series. They played decent cricket in that series, but the change of format will bring in its own set of questions.

Oman haven't played too many One Day Internationals up until now, one to be precise, and will be itching to prove them in the most abundantly played format of the game. They lost their only ODI to Namibia this year in their wherein they were mauled by a massive margin of 145 runs.

Oman Playing 11

Zeeshan Maqsood, Jatinder Singh, Suraj Kumar, Fayyaz Butt, Kaleemullah, Bilal Khan, Khawar Ali, Mohammad Nadeem, Aaqib Sulehri, Jay Odedra, Sandeep Goud.

Papua New Guinea

While Papua New Guinea haven't really played a lot of cricket on European soil, they have plenty of experience of playing at home. Adapting to the conditions could be an issue in their first match, but they'll also draw confidence from their win over Oman, which was long ago - before they were awarded the ODI playing nation status.

Led by Assad Vala, Papua New Guinea have a well-balanced lineup. Skipper himself will be the key to get PNG across the line with his batting as well as bowling skills. Just like Oman, they too are dependent on their all-rounders to do well, and if their batsmen, as well as the all-rounders, can step up their game, it should be an easy win for them.

Papua New Guinea Playing 11

Tony Ura, Gaudi Toka, Assad Vala, Lega Siaka, Charles Amin, Sese Bau, Kiplin Doriga, Chad Soper, Norman Vanua, Damien Ravu, Nosaina Pokana.
