T20 World Cup 2021 is starting from Sunday. In the first round, there will be a clash between Group B teams Oman and Papua New Guinea. Although cricket lovers will not be much interested in this match, but this match is very special for Papua New Guinea. Particularly because in this team not one, not two, but three players have lost a member of their family. Despite this, those players are playing T20 World Cup for their country.

Let us tell you that 3 players of Papua New Guinea’s team lost their mother and father last week. Bowler Nosaina Pokana’s father died, while wicketkeeper Kiplin Doriga and all-rounder Charles Amini’s mother also died. All these three deaths happened within 48 hours. Despite this, these three players are associated with their team and their dream is to take their team to the Super-12 round.

PNG did not play international cricket for 676 days!

It is also difficult for the Papua New Guinea team to play the T20 World Cup because this team did not play any international cricket for 676 days. Let us tell you that after the outbreak of Corona virus epidemic in 2020, PNG team played international cricket after 676 days in September this year. Papua New Guinea’s team lost 10 consecutive international matches after the Kovid epidemic, including 8 ODIs and 2 T20 matches. PNG also lost the warm-up matches of the World Cup. They lost to Ireland and Sri Lanka.

Last month, the PNG team came into the limelight when Jaskaran Malhotra of America hit 6 sixes in an over of his bowler Gody Toka. Malhotra scored an unbeaten 173 runs in that match. Although few people know that due to less match practice, PNG dropped 4 catches of Jaskaran. Jaskaran’s two catches were dropped before 20 runs. The players of the team have suffered personal damage. The team does not have match practice. Fielding is poor, bowlers are also not in form, despite this PNG team is spirited and they are ready to fight their life in the match against Oman.

PNG’s T20 World Cup squad: Asad Vala (Captain), Charles Amini, Lega Siaka, Norman Vanua, Nosaina Pokana, Kiplin Doriga, Tony Ura, Hiri Hiri, Gaudi Toka, Seuss Bau, Damien Ravu, Kabua Waghi-Moriya, Simon Atai, Jason Killa, Chad Soper, Jack Gardner.
