Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 has entered its final stages with a place in the main tournament next year at stake. The Netherlands have to win to top the group and confirm their berth in Australia. But with Papua New Guinea, also on 8 points, set to play against the weaker Kenya side, the Dutch will have to make sure that they win big against Scotland.

Rather, the Netherlands will know the equation at the start of the match as PNG will face Kenya early in the day. Scotland’s fate, on the other hand, will be decided even before their game starts. They would want PNG to lose to Kenya and then defeat the Netherlands by a big margin. Having said that, they will get another chance in the playoffs to qualify for the first round next year in the World Cup.
