Cricket Betting Tips

  • Richie Berrington was the highest scorer of the series against Zimbabwe and scored 168 runs in three games. He is our pick for top scorer.

  • With the ball, Safyaan Sharif had a good outing. Back him as Scotland's top scorer.

  • Scotland have a formidable opening pair and despite the poor form of Munsey against Zimbabwe, we are backing them to have better opening partnership.

Papua New Guinea vs Scotland 1st ODI Prediction & Betting Tips

PNG and Scotland will clash in first match of the World Cup League 2 at Al Amerat in Oman. The match will start at 11:00 AM IST

It's going to be a riveting games for sure. No doubt that Scotland are a better side but PNG will be benefited by the fact that the match will be played in Oman where they have recently played matches against USA and Nepal. But the fact that they lost all the four matches against Nepal and USA, one cannot take them for granted. Neither their batters nor bowlers made an impact in those matches thus PNG will have to make a complete turnaround to beat Scotland.

Scotland, on the other hand, recently faced Zimbabwe and suffered a 2-1 T20I series loss. Barring Richie Berrington, no one performed well with the bat. The bowling however was good. The likes of George Munsey, Kyle Coertzer need to come good and help Scotland post a good total as they have the bowling to blow away PNG

PNG vs SCO Match Pitch Report

The surface will be slightly slower as a lot of cricket has been played here. Spinners will be very effective while the batters will have to work hard for runs. A score of 250 should be good to defend.
