Papua New Guinea will take on Scotland in the next fixture of the ICC Cricket World Cup League Two 2019-23. Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai will continue to host the games.
Papua New Guinea’s struggles continued in the league after they suffered another loss in their previous game against Oman. It was their 17th loss of the campaign and they have managed to win only a single game so far.
Batting first, the Papua New Guinea side scored 224 in their 50 overs, losing nine wickets. It was a decent total but the bowlers failed to back up their batters as Oman chased down the total comfortably to win the game by seven wickets.
Scotland, on the other hand, have played 14 games so far. They have won nine matches, lost three, and have 20 points to their name. They beat Oman in a close-fought game in their last fixture.
The Scottish batters struggled against Oman’s bowling attack as they were bundled out on 215 in the last over. What followed was a brilliant bowling display from the Scottish side as they knocked Oman over on 211 to win the game by four runs.
