Papua New Guinea
PNG are struggling to find their feet in this tournament. They have just 1 win in their courtyard out of the total 3 matches which they have played in this league. Nothing is going into the hands of PNG till now in this league. They need to buck up otherwise they will have to regret it when this crucial tournament will get over.
The team is not performing as a group as if now. In one match their batsmen are doing a great job as they did it against Hong Kong and in other their bowlers did it well but there is no consistency in their performances of PNG.
Tony Ura and Sese Bau have to give some good start to the team otherwise it will become very difficult for their middle order to post some big total on the scoreboard. Moreover, Tony Ura is one of their most experienced batsmen currently playing in the team.
Skipper Asad Vala will have to lead from the middle and play a role of sheet anchor for the team.
Bowlers have to come really strong in this tournament after a humiliating performance done by them against United States of America.
Canada has lost all of their matches and has found themselves stuck in the last of the points table. They have players that can turn the table for them but they need to come really strong against PNG so that they can put their contention as a dominant team in this tournament.
