Share

SCO vs PNG Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Group B matches are heading to a whole new level of excitement after Scotland’s thumping victory over the strong Bangladesh side. Now they have a great opportunity at hand to beat the minnows Papua New Guinea and take an unassailable lead in group B to make their chances to qualify for Super 12. PNG on the other hand succumbed to a humiliating defeat against Oman, even after registering a par total on the board. They will also be looking to make changes in the game plans to come good this time against Scotland.

SCO vs PNG T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

Scotland

  • Scotland made a huge impression in the T20 World Cup 2021 by beating Bangladesh in the last match.
  • B Wheel has been impressive in the last match wherein he picked up 3 wickets against Bangladesh.
  • Max O Dowd was the star with the bat in the last match, wherein he scored a run-a-ball fifty.

Papua New Guinea

  • Papua New Guinea lost all the three matches that they played recently including the 2 warmup matches and the first group game against Oman.
  • Kabua Morea starred with the ball in the warm-up match against Sri Lanka. He finished with figures of 4-25 from 4 overs in that match.
  • Captain Assad Vala scored 56(43) against Oman in the last match and is in good nick.

SCO vs PNG Today Match Prediction

Papua New Guinea made a strong comeback in the last match after losing early wickets in the first couple of overs, courtesy of a fine partnership between captain Assad Vala and Charles Amini. But those fighting efforts weren’t enough to stop a rampaging Oman batting unit. More or less the same treatment they can expect from Scotland as well. They are coming off after a huge victory against the Bangladesh side, and that confidence will be more than enough to defeat this PNG side.

SCO vs PNG Winning Chances

This is a no-brainer. Considering the current form, squad composition, and form of the players leading into this match, Scotland starts as hot favourites to win this match. They have all that it takes to defeat this PNG side any day. So expect a Scotland win. Even the prominent betting sites are also predicting the same.
