Scotland will take on Papua New Guinea in match number five of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Tuesday at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground (Ministry Turf 1). The match will be played as part of the Group B clashes in Round 1 of the tournament.

Scotland had a brilliant start to their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign. They caught a lethargic Bangladesh off guard and stunned them by six runs. Batting first, Scotland collapsed to 53 for 6 before Chris Greaves’ 45 off 28 lifted them to a competitive 140 for 9. Greaves then starred with the ball as well, dismissing Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim. Bradley Wheal also excelled with figures of 3 for 24.

Papua New Guinea had a forgettable T20 World Cup debut as they succumbed to a 10-wicket defeat against Oman. PNG skipper Assad Vala (56) and Charles Amini (37) batted well in the match no one else could stand up to the task.
