ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers Match 38 Squad Comparison

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea has been in great form with 4 wins in 5 matches. PNG’s only loss in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier was against Scotland chasing 147 runs in a close finish. PNG lost that match by 4 runs where Norman Vanua played a crucial innings scoring 33 off 18 balls at number 7. His wicket in the last over was the big moment where the game slipped away from PNG. Since then, PNG has won 2 consecutive matches where Assad Vala, Sese Bau, Tony Ura, Charles Amini, and Kiplin Doriga made significant contributions with the bat. Charles Amini and Kiplin Doriga scored unbeaten 41 and 43 runs in the last match at number 4 and 6 respectively.

While Tony Ura and Assad Vala have also been scoring well at the top, Sese Bau was unbeaten on 34 off 26 balls at number 5 against the Netherlands, where PNG successfully chased down 127 runs with 5 wickets in hand. Charles Amini not only contributed with the bat but also picked up 2 for 24 bowling first against the Netherlands. Damien Ravu is another in-form bowler and will play a crucial role in the last league stage match against Kenya.


Kenya ranks 6th in the points table with 2 wins and 3 losses in 5 matches so far in the tournament. Kenya’s form in the last 3 matches – L W W. After two consecutive wins against Bermuda and Singapore, Kenya faced its 3rd loss of the tournament against Namibia at this venue. While Irfan Karim (70) and Aman Gandhi (50) helped chase 158-runs against Singapore, in the very next match, Kenya was bowled out for 94 runs chasing 182 against Namibia.

Previously in the win against Bermuda, Kenya had managed to score only 138-4 batting first with an unbeaten 85-runs inning from Dhiren Gondaria at number 3. However small, Kenya successfully defended this total as Collins Obuya picked 4 for 27 and Rakep Patel finished 2 for 8. The bowlers have done well in the last few matches with Elijah Otieno and Lucas Oluoch joining the party as well with 3 wickets each against Singapore. It’s the batting line-up that’s been inconsistent and in the T20 format, that will cost the team big time.
