Papua New Guinea will take on Oman in the ICC Men's CWC League 2 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1) in Oman on Friday.

PNG, led by Assad Vala, haven’t had a great run in recent times. They have lost their last three ODIs in pretty comprehensive fashion, including a four-wicket defeat by Scotland on Wednesday.

After electing to bat first, PNG racked up a respectable score of 226 for the loss of eight wickets. Norman Vanua scored 57 runs lower down the order and took PNG to a fighting total. However, Kyle Coetzer’s 103-ball 81 carried Scotland over the finish line with seven balls to spare.

Oman, on the other hand, are in pretty good form, winning four of their last six ODIs. However, they did lose their most recent match to Scotland by 18 runs.

Batting first, Scotland scored 273 thanks to Richie Berrington’s 97. In reply, Jatinder Singh and Sandeep Goud scored half-centuries, but their efforts went in vain as Oman finished with 255 runs.
