PNG VS SCOTLAND: PNG in disarray after Scotland post 165/9, T20 WORLD CUP 2021

Scotland has Group B's top spot in their sights as they take on Papua New Guinea in the teams' second match of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021.


The Scotland pace attack reduced PNG to 35/5 in the Powerplay after Richie Berrington's half-century helped set a target of 166.

Berrington smashed an entertaining 70 off 49 balls, adding 92 runs with Matt Cross for the third wicket.

Poor Powerplay for PNG

PNG opener Tony Ura's poor run in the tournament extended to a second game as he chopped on in the second over, giving Josh Davey his first wicket of the day. 

Having taken Brad Wheal for a four on the first ball of the over, Lega Siaka attempted to dance down the pitch again, only to edge to the wicket-keeper.

A flurry of wickets at the death for PNG

The start was disappointing for PNG, considering how they had done well to pull things back at the death. Six wickets fell in the last two overs as the Scotland middle and lower order tried to add quick runs. 

Chad Soper, who was PNG's only change for this match, and Kabua Morea finished with four wickets each, even as the PNG fielders backed them up with good catches.

PNG seamers strike early

PNG's seamers had been effective earlier in the Powerplay, too. Morea, the left-arm pacer, and Soper took a wicket each to keep Scotland to 37/2 in the Powerplay. 

After Scotland chose to bat, George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer got off to a busy start, striking a couple of fours off both new-ball bowlers, Nosaina Pokana and Charles Amini.
