The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is all set to kick off with the hosts, Oman taking on Papua New Guinea on Sunday, October 17 in Al Amerat.
Oman has had a decent outing in the warm-up matches, leading into the world cup. They defeated Namibia by 32 runs but lost a closely fought match against the Netherlands. Skipper Aqib Illysa is in great form, having scored 108 runs in the two warm-up matches.
On the other hand, Papua New Guinea lost both their warmup matches. They failed to chase down 162 runs against Sri Lanka and then lost by 8 wickets against Ireland. Papua New Guinea will be hoping that the likes of Assad Vala, Tony Ura will take up the responsibility in the coming matches.
