Team Analysis

The Caribbean team is led by none other than their most experienced and lethal player, Rovman Powell. Powell, himself is a valuable asset for the West Indian team in this World Cup as he plays at an average strike rate of 144.81 and is known for his unstoppable batting talents consisting of mighty sixes and boundaries. Moreover, the West Indian team features economical bowlers and destructive batsmen who create a delicate balance in the squad. Examples of these impact players include Shai Hope, Andre Russel, Brandon King, and Nicholas Pooran.

Papua New Guinea will be led into its debut World Cup by the classy all-rounder, Assad Vala. The PNG team is inexperienced and as mentioned by their coach, is only looking for experience and room for improvement in this World Cup. Perhaps, the only player expected to challenge the former World Cup winners is Tony Ura. Tony is the only Papua New Guinea player to ever score a century in the T20Is. 

Match Insights

The West Indian team holds an advantage over the Papua New Guinea team in terms of experience, talent, and home conditions. Moreover, confidence and conviction are high in the West Indian nets owing to the team’s whitewash victory over South Africa in the recent bilateral T20 series.

It can be predicted with confidence that the West Indian team will most likely win this encounter and secure the 2 important points in their 1st group game. If the Papua New Guinea team is somehow able to win this, it won’t be any less of an important upset in this World Cup.


Cricket fans will be keeping a strict eye on the points table to catch the progress of their favorite teams.
