Overall match prediction 

To pick a team that will win today will be Scotland without any second thought. They have shown their brilliant performance against mighty Bangladesh. Scotland has made it difficult for a top team like Bangladesh to be in the super 12. We can expect much more from the Scottish squad after their win. Kyle Coetzer has shown his excellent captaincy skills by making crucial decisions in the last overs. Their key player for this match will be Cris Greaves, the man of the game against Bangladesh. He picked up two wickets and played a significant knock.

Cricket fans expected a lot from PNG as their team looks solid and dominant in their recent encounters. Oman just crashed PNG with great batting and bowling performance. Their captain Assad Vala was unsure about his bowler in the match against Oman, and it was visible frustration as Oman finished the game in 15 overs. Papa New Guinea's batting order also collapsed after a good partnership of the captain and Charles Amini. Their opener could not even make runs and was taken lit quickly by the Oman bowlers. We expect much more from the captain if the team fails again, and someone should assist him in setting a big score on the board.
