SCO vs PNG Today Match Prediction, 5th Match WT20, 19th October 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for SCO vs. PNG Today Match Prediction, 2nd T20, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is playing qualifiers for the first time and their inexperience is reflected in their batting lineup. They were 102 for 3 in 14 overs and were looking set for a big score but got restricted to just 129 runs because of collapse in the lower order. Their captain top-scored with 56 runs and looked in deft touch. PNG is a rising nation and every match against quality opposition is a learning curve for them.

They are now up against Scotland who defeated Bangladesh but Papua New Guinea will fancy their chances against Scotland as they struggled against spinners and PNG has some good spinners who can exert some help from the surface. Their batting group needs to come collectively and access the conditions before going hard.

Scotland

Scotland pulled off a magnificent upset in the first match against Bangladesh who was favorites to qualify from this group but Scotland’s win has changed the dimensions. If Scotland clinch victory in this match also then, they will be favorites to qualify. They are coming off good recent form and even recently defeated Zimbabwe. Scotland had a good record against Papua New Guinea and defeated them on all occasions when they last met in ICC WT20 qualifiers.

Scotland won against Bangladesh but they were struggling at one stage when they were 56 for 6 wickets. They showed great grit and character and this is their golden chance to make a strong statement. Their bowling is the strongest department and they showcased incredible discipline in the last match even though dew was making their job tough but they held their head high.

SCO vs PNG – Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Scotland is expected to win the match against Papua New Guinea

KhelTalk experts feel Scotland will win against Papua New Guinea in this match. Scotland is certainly a favorite for this match especially after their heroics against Bangladesh. Scotland is a balanced side but their batters need to take more responsibility and they nearly got bundled out for 100 odd runs if the lower order didn’t show some fight.

Their bowling department is their biggest strength and has some really threatening options. On the other hand, Papua New Guinea is new to this stage and in the first match despite being in good condition, they collapsed. We expect Scotland to win this contest against Papua New Guinea.

Top Batsman from Papua New Guinea – Assad Vala (3.75 odds)

Assad Vala was a delight to watch in the first match and scored a blistering 56 runs. Although his team lost, his elegant batting was one of the talking points of the match. The left-handed batsman displayed great composure after Papua New Guinea was 0 for 2 and led the recovery and at one stage PNG was 102 for 3 wickets in 14 overs. He is strong against spinners and uses his feet to tackle them. He is Papua New Guinea captain and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Papua New Guinea.

Top Batsman from Scotland – Munsey (3.75 odds)

Munsey scored a free-flowing 29 runs in the first match and played some awestruck shots. He is a wristy player and also a good player of seamers in powerplay overs. Although, he struggled against spinners in middle overs but is capable of taking them down at his will. He is a powerful man and strikes the ball really hard. Munsey sets the tone of the match for Scotland and his performance is crucial for Scotland’s lineup. He looked good in the first match and can give you good returns from this match.

Top Bowler from Papua New Guinea  – Nosaina Pokana (4.75 odds)

Nosaina Pokana is arguably the fastest bowler from Papua side. He is a left-arm fast bowler and impressed everyone in the first match. Although, he didn’t pick wickets but was very lethal with his fierce pace. Nosaina is Papua New Guinea’s biggest wicket-taking option and the captain likes to use him in crunch situations.

He is an exciting prospect for the Papua team and will be one to watch out for from this match. He is fast and furious and can trouble Scottish batters on this slow track. He is our pick for best bowler from Papua New Guinea.

Top Bowler from Scotland – Bradley Wheal (4.33 odds)

Bradley Wheal was the star with the ball in the first match and took 3 crucial wickets. He was brilliant with the new ball and troubled every Bangladeshi batsman with his fiery line and length and top of that his death bowling was a master class under dewy conditions.

Wheal didn’t give an inch to experienced campaigners like Mahmudullah and took Scotland home. He has only played 7 matches till now but has shown a lot of maturity and composure in crunch situations. Bradley is our pick for best bowler from Scotland.
