PNG opening batsmen Tony Pala Ura has been the leading run-scorer for the side since World Cup Qualifiers. He has amassed 458 runs at an average of 65.43 since then that also includes two tons.
Rest of the batters of PNG have looked inconsistent and they need to perform as a unit against Namibia to secure a win.
In wicketkeeper, Z Green will be right pick as PNG can rope in any one of K Doriga or S Atai for wicketkeeping.
Christi Viljoen is a must have all-rounder from Namibia. He will be crucial to the side with his cameo from both bat and ball.
