Bangladesh vs Papua New Guinea Predictions


Bangladesh must win this match to qualify, and to be safe, they must win it convincingly. My best bet for the match is for the in-form Mohammad Naim to score over 24.5 runs.

Head to Head


Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea have never met before.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh are in a slightly precarious position going into their final group match. It is a must-win encounter and although they should come out on top with relative ease, they do have added pressure.

Victory does not 100% secure their top two spot. If Oman beat Scotland the three sides will be level on four points so it will come down to net run rate.

This situation came about because Scotland upset the odds to beat the Tigers in the first match of the group. Bangladesh beat Oman last time out to ensure they still had a qualification chance.

Batting first in Al Amerat, Bangladesh scored 153 runs. Mohammad Naim top scored on 64 while Shakib Al Hasan managed 42 runs. Still, the target was not huge and Oman had a decent chance to win.

Oman made a decent start to put Bangladesh under pressure but Mustafizur Rahman (4-36) and Shakib Al Hasan (3-28) ensured a 26-run win for Bangladesh. 

Bangladesh Injuries & Team News


Bangladesh will be concerned about the form of a number of batsmen. There may be a reshuffle in the order to get Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah batting higher up.

Papua New Guinea Form


Papua New Guinea were always expected to exit the competition at this stage. Any victory would have sparked wild celebrations and while they have not yet achieved it, they will be reasonably happy with their performances.

In the opening game they lost by 10 wickets to Oman but performed better against Scotland. The Scots scored 165 runs batting first but Papua New Guinea fought hard in the chase, eventually falling 17 runs short.

Norman Vanua top scored with 47 runs. There were other contributions from Assad Vala, Sese Bau and Kiplin Doriga.

Verdict

Mohammad Naim scored 50+ in his last match and is backed to score over 24.5 runs here. He is also backed to top score yet again for Bangladesh while Shakib Al Hasan is tipped for the man of the match award.

Assad Vala is the best option for the best batsman in the Papua New Guinea side.
