A big occasion for Papua New Guinea to be a part of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. They worked had to reach this far. Looking at the name of the country, most of us haven’t known about their Cricket team. But they have made it leaving so many good cricketing nations behind. So, PNG will be a new team for their contenders. Expecting heavy performances from the team may be a bit early, but who knows, a complete young talent can do anything. The list of PNG Team ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is given below.
PNG T20 World Cup Team
Asad Vala, Charles Amini, Simon Atai, Sese Bau, Kiplin Doriga, Riley Hekure, Hiri Hiri, Jason Kila, Alei Nao, Nosaina Poakana, Damien Ravu, John Reva, Lega Siaka, Tony Ura, Norman Vanua
Papua New Guinea is in Group B, facing the host Oman, Bangladesh, and Namibia. The grouping in the 2021 T20 World looks quite unusual. Most of the Asian teams in both stages are in one group, and the other teams from outside Asia are kept in the other groups. How much will this work from the governing body? We will have to wait till the real buzz starts.
What are the chances of PNG’s qualification for the next round? It will be too much to expect the team to qualify for the Super 12s of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
PNG vs Group B T20 World Cup
PNG will start its campaign on the opening day of the world cup against Oman. On the 19th of October, Namibia and PNG will take on each other. PNG vs. Bangladesh will be held on the 21st. If they manage to beat Oman and Namibia, their chances of qualification for the second round is 10-15 percent.
