The United States of America is about to play its first ever ODI on home soil against Papua New Guinea as a part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2. That easy to roll off name is the ladder to the ualifers for the next major men’s ICC event as well as the qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup.
There is a lot of excitement around the cricketing world to see if the revamped cricketing structure of USA can bring about some improvements in their performances and allow cricket take a foothold in the country.
The weather in Lauderhill, Florida is a big concern as rain could end up playing spoilsport. We will hope for the best and look forward to action on the field, though.
USA vs PNG 1st ODI is going to be played at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida on the 13th of September 2019.
It is not easy being a small cricketing country with a few star players because of the lure of T20 Leagues around the world. The Caribbean Premier League is going on right now and that is why two of USA cricket’s best players are going to be missing this ODI series.
Ali Khan and Hayden Walsh Jr. have opted to stay in the CPL rather than play for the USA. Since they don’t have central contracts, there is nothing more that can be done about it.
There are some good players to watch out for, though. Rusty Theron, a former South African international has been picked for USA cricket after meeting his three-year residency requirement. He has played in the IPL in the past and will be a very good addition at this level of cricket.
Saurabh Netravalkar, Xavier Marshal, and Aaron Jones are all pretty decent players. While Natravalkar is a bowler, the other two will play a central role in the batting department.
USA cricket did not do well in the T20 Qualifiers last month losing to Canada and Bermuda twice. There are just five players different in this squad and that suggests that the overall quality of the side is not too good.
With a couple of key players missing, team USA could have a very tough time in this series.
Jaskaran Malhotra, Xavier Marshall, Monank Patel, Aaron Jones, SR Taylor, Rusty Theron, Timil Patel, Saurabh Netravalkar, Karima Gore, Elmore Hutchinson, Nisarg Patel.
Papua New Guinea may be a small nation but it has a lot more cricketing history than the USA. The players in the side are a lot more experienced and are brought up in a culture where cricket is far more prevalent than the average person would expect.
The team has been undergoing a bit of a slump in form this year, though. It has played four ODI’s this year and only won one out of them. Incidentally, that victory came against the USA.
Papua New Guinea still goes into this match as a firm favorite.
The batting will be led by Assad Vala, a batting all-rounder and the captain of the side with support from Charles Amini, Tony Ura, Kiplin Dogria. There are a number of useful bowling all-rounders in the team as well giving Papua New Guinea a lot of depth.
At this level of cricket, we think Papua New Guinea should be confident of outscoring the United States of America.
The bowling is going to be led by Nosaina Pokana, Damien Ravu, and Norman Vanua.
Kiplin Doriga, Tony Ura, Lega Siaka, Gaudi Toka, Assad Vala, Chad Soper, Charles Amin, Alei Nao, Norman Vanua, Nosaina Pokana, Jason Kila.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first with all the rain around

USA vs PNG 1st ODI is going to be played at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida on the 13th of September 2019. The weather in Lauderhill is pretty gloomy. The forecast is for rain throughout the day of the match and we will have to be very lucky to get a result in this contest.
We think that Papua New Guinea should be able to win this game since it has a more experienced squad, a decent record against the USA, and all of its first-choice players available. USA has struggled in recent months to beat weaker associate sides and is missing two of its best players as well.
Bet on Papua New Guinea to win.
