Important News :

  • After losing their first match PNG can make few changes.
  • After winning their first match, Ireland can play with same XI.

Tips :

  • In wicket keeper section Niall O’Brian should be a direct choice. He bats at no. 5 and even in last match he played pretty well. The other wicket keeper Vare bats very low and his batting position in last match was no.8. We feel Niall O’Brian is best.
  • In batting from PNG Siaka and Morea are some good options. It’s very hard to predict from PNG because in last match none of the batsman had scored 30 runs and more. From Ireland Porterfield, Stirling, Joyce, Balbirnie are good batsmen. Take any three from them. In last match Balbirnie was top scorer for Ireland.
  • In all rounder section from PNG Dai, Vala and Nao all three are good players but in last match skipper Vala and Dai both failed. Take any one because Ireland has a good line up. From Ireland Kevin O’Brian is the only option available.
  • In bowling from PNG Vanua, Soper and Amini all three are good bowlers. In last match Vanua took a four fer. Take at least one from them. From Ireland Rankin, Murtagh, Dockrell and McCarthy all four are good. If you strongly believe PNG cannot score more runs then select all four bowlers from Ireland.
