Lauderhill, Florida, 25th September at 11:30 PM IST
After the completion of ICC Men's Cricket World Cup League 2, Namibia and Papua New Guinea will be colliding in a 2-match T20I series which will take place at Lauderhill in Florida.
Papua New Guinea had a miserable run in the World Cup League 2 tournament where they finished at the bottom of the table without winning a single game from 4 matches.
On the other hand, Namibia finished second on the points table with 3 wins from 4 matches which clearly states their mental strength going into this series. So, which team will have the last laugh in the first match of the series? We will be getting the answers tonight.
T2OIs have generally seen high scoring games here. Setting a target is relatively easy than chasing which will definitely provoke the captain winning the toss to bat first.
