T20 World Cup 2024: Papua New Guinea dismissed for 77

In a dismal diaplay of batting, Papua New Guinea could score just 77 runs in the  group match against Uganda in ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 at the Providence Stadium, Guyana, on Thursday.

Earlier, Uganda won the toss and decided to bowl first. Their decision paid off as as PNG were bundled out for only 77 runs in 19.1 overs.

Only three PNG batters managed to get into double figures in a sorry batting display. 

Alpesh Ramjani, Cosmas Kyewuta, Juma Miyagi and Frank Nsubuga claimed two wickets each for Uganda.

Both teams are coming into this match after defeats in their opening fixtures. PNG made a spirited effort against the hosts West Indies in their first match, while Uganda received a stiff lesson from Afghanistan. However, one of these teams will clinch their historic first World Cup win today.

"We will bowl. We played here previously, we know exactly what to do. We had a discussion, just need to bat well and not lose wickets in clusters," Uganda captain Brian Masaba said at the toss.

Meanwhile, PNG captain Assad Vala said: "We were also looking to field, but we'll need to bat well now. We spoke about some areas where we can improve."
