PNG will take on Malaysia in the fifth game of the Nepal T20I Tri-Series 2022. The Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kirtipur will host this encounter.
PNG, led by Assad Vala, are languishing at the bottom of the points table with a net run rate of -1.000. Nepal, captained by Sandeep Lamichhane, defeated them by 37 runs on Thursday, March 31. But despite three losses, PNG still have a chance of qualifying for the final.
After electing to field first, the PNG bowlers faltered as Nepal racked up a massive score of 203 for seven on the board. Dipendra Singh was the star of the show for Nepal as he scored 66 runs off 33 balls with the help of three fours and four sixes.
Kabua Morea picked up three wickets for PNG while Riley Hekure got two wickets. Charles Amini scored a half-century in PNG’s run-chase, but his efforts went in vain. Karan KC picked up a fifer and made sure Nepal bowled their opponents out for 166 in 19.4 overs.
