The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Papua New Guinea (PNG) all set to take on each other for the second Twenty 20 International (T20I) on Friday. In the first match, U.A.E won the match by five wickets. So after ODI series victory, UAE must look for the T20I series victory in the second T20. At the same time, PNG will eye for a fight back to square the series.
United Arab Emirates (U.A.E)
The hosts chased down an easy target within 16 overs. The visiting side scored 102 in the match. In reply, the UAE scored got off to a messy start. However due to Shaiman Anwar’s 39 the home team registered a comfortable victory in the match.
Earlier in the match, U.A.E bowlers kept PNG batsmen in check. PNG struggled throughout the match as bowler Amjad Javed and Mohammad Naveed took three wickets each. So, in the second ODI as well U.A.E will try to keep their domination on PNG intact.
The victory in the first match announced U.A.E’s domination over the South Pacific nation.
To register a victory in the second match U.A.E must emulate their first match performance.
Papua New Guinea (PNG)
The under pressure visitors must play good cricket to win the second T20 otherwise they have to concede another series defeat to the U.A.E.
In the first match, PNG failed to put up a great show at the as their batting department failed to set a big target for U.A.E and bowlers milked too many runs. So, to prevent U.A.E from a series victory in the second T20 PNG must show their credentials.
PNG suffered a defeat in the ODI series, now a defeat in the T20 series will not give a good signal to the already dented cricket team. In the first T20, none of their batsmen scored a fifty. The top order failed to break the confidence of U.A.E bowlers. However, Sese Bau and Mahuru Dai showed some resistance. To prevent U.A.E from a series victory in the T20, PNG must showcase their best form and defeat the home team to gain back the confidence in the match.
