Match Details:

The 13th game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 will be played between Scotland and Papua New Guinea at the ICC Academy in Dubai.

The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (6:00 AM GMT) (11:30 AM IST). There will be no live streaming of this match in India.

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The in-form Papua New Guinea will face Scotland in the 14th match of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. Tony Ura and Assad Vala have been in amazing form. PNG thrashed Namibia by 81 runs on Sunday and it was this due’s batting at the top of the order which made it possible. Rather Namibia were expected to give them a run for their money but it ended up being a one-sided contest.

Scotland, on the other hand, have come back strongly after suffering a shock defeat at the hands of Singapore. They defeated Kenya by 31 runs and are a stronger outfit compared to PNG. But Scotland can’t take things for granted against them and another loss could put their chances of qualifying for the tournament proper in trouble.

Weather Report:

There is no chance of rain possible in Dubai on Monday. The sun will be out and the players might struggle due to excessive heat. The temperature will hover around 31-34 Degrees Celsius during the match according to AccuWeather.


Pitch Report:

The pitches have slowly started to get tired with the amount of cricket being played. This will be the fifth match at the venue and if multiple pitches are being used, it will possibly be the third game on the surface being used. So the mantra will be to bat first after winning the toss.

Average first innings score: 141 (4 matches at the venue in this tournament)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 3
