PNG vs USA Team Previews

Papua New Guinea

The Papua New Guinea batting order will have the likes of Lega Siaka and Tony Ura at the top of the order. The PNG middle order will be in the hands of the likes of Assad Wala, Hiri hiri, Sese Bau, Simon Atai, and Kiplin Doriga. The Papua New Guinea bowling attack will be handled by the likes of Kabua Morea, Nosaina Pokana, Chad Soper, Damien Ravu, and Norman Vanua. Some good all-rounders are playing in the PNG side. Some of the good ones are Gaudi Toka, Charles Amini, and Jason Kila. Jason Kila is more of a bowling all-rounder.

The Papua New Guinea side played its last game against Namibia on 19th November at the same venue in Windhoek. They were comprehensively beaten in this game by the Namibian side by a margin of 8 wickets. The Namibian side got home with as many as 209 balls to spare. Batting first, the PNG team could score just 107 runs from their quota of 50 overs. They were bowled out in 38.5 overs for this paltry total. The only decent contribution towards the PNG innings came from Assad Vala who scored a grafted 44 from 90 balls with 3 fours. Only three other batters could reach the double figures in the PNG innings.

As expected, the Namibian batsmen made short work of the PNG total by winning it in a canter. They scored the requisite runs within 15.1 overs with the loss of just a couple of wickets in the process. On the same track where the PNG batters found the Namibian bowling to be unplayable, the PNG bowlers were not able to make any impression on the Namibian batters. Chad Soper and Charles Amini picked up a wicket apiece and were the only successful bowlers in the Namibia innings. Other bowlers went for a lot of runs.

United States Of America

The United States of America's top order will be in the hands of batters such as Aaron Jones, Steven Taylor, and Monank Patel. Saurabh Netravalkar will lead the bowling attack for the United States of America outfit and he will be helped by bowlers such as Rusty Theron. Some good all-rounders are playing on the USA team such as Ian Holland and wicketkeeper-batsman Akshay Homraj. The USA batter Aaron Jones has done an exceptional job for his team in the competition so far. He has scored 481 runs in his last 10 matches for the USA team.

Unlike their opponents in this game PNG, the USA team is going into this game with an unlikely victory against Namibia in their last encounter. This game against the host country was played at the same venue as this. Batting first, the USA side scored a decent total of 244 for 8 in their quota of 50 overs. The top run-getter for the United States of America was Gajanand Singh who scored 66 runs from 65 balls with 8 fours and one six. Several other batters got a start in the USA innings such as Steven Taylor, Aaron Jones, and Monank Patel. But only Gajanand Singh could cross the half-century mark in their innings.

In reply to the USA total, the Namibian outfit was bowled out for 173 runs in 43.4 overs. Although a few batters did get a start for Namibia, none of them could convert the start into a big score. The Namibia skipper Gerhard Erasmus was the leading run-getter for the USA with 27 runs from 50 balls. The USA bowlers did a wonderful containment job by restricting the opposition to a low score. The pick of the bowlers was again their skipper Saurabh Netravalkar with 2 wickets for 13 runs. Other bowlers that also picked up a couple of wickets were Ian Holland, Steven Taylor, and Nosthush Kenjige. All the USA bowlers used in the Namibian innings were among the wickets.
