T20 World Cup 2024: Preview, PNG vs. UGA | Cricket Tips, Playing 11 Prediction

The 2024 T20 World Cup is aging quickly and gracefully. Two ICC affiliate countries, Uganda and Papua New Guinea, will play each other in the tournament’s ninth game.

After winning the East Asia Pacific qualifications, PNG was allowed to compete. Uganda’s exciting tale, on the other hand, was that it advanced through the African qualifications and into the tournament by defeating Zimbabwe.

PNG vs UGA: Team Previews

The Papua New Guinea

The Barramundis have begun their campaign against West Indies, one of the tournament’s hosts. The team captained by Assad Vala did not win the match, but they did show courage in both bat and ball.

To defeat Uganda and win their first-ever T20 World Cup, Papua New Guinea will be looking to their star players, like as Alei Nao, Sese Bau, Charles Amini, and Assad Vala, to come up once more.

The Uganda

Once Uganda beat Zimbabwe in the African qualifying final, they qualified for the T20 World Cup 2024 in a situation straight out of a movie. But the Cranes may have sensed the change in the caliber of cricket played at this level when they played Afghanistan in their opening game of the tournament.

In their first game together, the Ugandan team appeared to be completely lost. They took four wickets and only let up 27 runs in five overs during the death-over bowling, which was their lone bright spot. Their goal for their second tournament matchup is to improve upon the other areas and put on a stronger show versus Papua New Guinea.

UGA vs. PNG: Pitch Report from Providence Stadium

The Providence Stadium has hosted two matches so far in this competition, and both times the wicket has appeared slow. Particularly in the second half of the game, the batsmen have had trouble making strokes against the spinners. In light of this, we should anticipate an average-scoring match in which the spinners will have a big influence.
