After a spectacular victory over the Netherlands on Thursday, Papua New Guinea will be raring to get on the field against Singapore. They are at the top of the table with three victories from their four matches which is a fantastic start to their qualifying campaign. Singapore, their opponents, have won two and lost two and are placed fifth on the points table. Both sides would look to gather some positive momentum going into the business end of the qualifiers and this should be a cracking contest.
ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier
Papua New Guinea vs Singapore
25th October 2019
11:30 AM IST
Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
Sunny conditions with absolutely no chances of rain and temperature ranging around 32 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
The surface will be conducive to batting in the early stages of the game but will slow down substantially as the match progresses, which will bring the spinners into play.
No major injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Papua New Guinea:
Assad Vala and Tony Ura form the bedrock of the batting department along with Charles Amini, who is a valuable asset with both bat and bowl. Norman Vanua and Nosaina Pokana are key figures in the bowling unit.
Assad Vala(c), Tony Ura, Lega Siaka, Charles Amini, Sese Bau, Riley Hekure, Norman Vanua, Kiplin Doriga(w), Jason Kila, Damien Ravu, Nosaina Pokana
Surendran Chandramohan has done well so far and the mantle of run-scoring will lie on his shoulders whilst Tim David and Aritra Dutta will be expected to steer the middle order. Janak Prakash can make a decisive impact in all three departments whereas skipper Amjad Mahboob is their most potent threat with the bowl in hand.
Rezza Gaznavi, Surendran Chandramohan, Tim David, Aritra Dutta, Manpreet Singh(w), Navin Param, Janak Prakash, Aahan Gopinath Achar, Sidhant Singh, Amjad Mahboob(c), Vinoth Baskaran
Assad Vala scored 37 in the last game on a challenging batting track to guide his team to a huge victory over the Dutch. The all-rounder is in fantastic form and should be a part of your fantasy side. Tony Ura is a consistent performer whilst Sese Bau kept his nerve and notched an unbeaten 34(26) against the Dutch. Both would be wise additions to the Dream11 Team. For Singapore, Tim David, Surendran Chandramohan and Janak Prakash are must-haves as the trio are certain to amass a copious amount of points for your side.
