Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea are set to face each other in their last game of the Round 1 fixtures of the T20 World Cup on October 21, 2021. Both the sides faced humiliating defeats in their opening games of the tournament; however, Bangladesh made a strong comeback registering a comfortable win against Oman. On the other hand, Papua New Guinea haven’t won a single game in the tournament and it’s now next to impossible for them to finish in the top-2. While for Bangladesh, a win in this game is extremely crucial to be able to keep their chances alive to qualify for the Super 12.
Bangladesh will aim to keep their momentum going, having made a strong comeback in their last game. All-rounder Shakib al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman are the top picks from the side and are dependable captain choices. Additionally, Naim Sheikh and Liton Das can contribute some runs from the bat and can be banked upon for fantasy points.
Although Papua New Guinea have not managed to win even a single game, some of their players have shown impressive performances. Skipper Assad Vala will be of utmost importance and is an excellent vice-captain choice. Kabua Morea’s 4-wicket haul in the last game, along with Chad Super’s breakthroughs showed a sheer display of quality cricket, making them smart picks for fantasy.
