Two crucial Group A games are in store for Super Sunday. Papua New Guinea and Kenya will be playing the morning game. Kenya have a mathematical chance of qualifying, but need something extraordinary to go through. On the contrary, PNG will give themselves a great chance of making the T20 World Cup next year if they win the match. In the other game, Netherlands and Scotland will play.

Netherlands will be looking at the first game. If PNG lose then a victory will seal Netherland’s position in the T20 World Cup. If PNG don’t lose, even then Pieter Seelaar and Co will be in with a chance of topping the points table. Scotland have a chance of topping the table, but chances are very remote. The Scott have huffed and puffed, losing first to Singapore and then to Namibia.
