BAN vs PNG Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Group B matches are heading to a whole new level of excitement. This match between Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea is more important to Bangladesh than to PNG. The latter have lost both their group matches and are on their way back home. Bangladesh on the other hand is now placed 3rd in the group and they would need to win this match at any cost since their NRR is below that of second-placed Oman. With all these things at stake, Bangladesh is expected to come all guns blazing.
Papua New Guinea
After a humiliating defeat against Scotland, Bangladesh came back strongly in the last match against Oman and they will be raring to do the same against PNG, so as to book a place in the Super 12. Mostly they will be able to do it as PNG has been completely off in the last few matches. Even though they have tried their best, they are still below par compared to the rest of the teams in the group.
This is a no-brainer. Considering the current form, squad composition, and form of the players leading into this match, Bangladesh starts as hot favourites to win this match. They have all that it takes to defeat this PNG side any day. So expect a Bangladesh win. Even the prominent betting sites are also predicting the same.
