Bangladesh will take on Papua New Guinea in the Group B contest of the T20 World Cup 2021. Bangladesh kept their chances of qualifying into Super 12 stages alive with a win over Oman by 26 runs. They would have been disappointed with their poor show against Scotland, but the win over Oman has given them plenty of confidence. They still need to win this match by a significant margin.
Papua New Guinea, on the other hand, will not make it to the next round as they lost both their matches against Oman and Scotland. They showed some fight against Scotland in their previous game, but lost the match in the end by 17 runs.
