Section 4: Player matchups

Section 5: Better numbers in first or second innings? 

(Refer PDF) 

Section 6: Finding the fantasy value: 

Asad Vala (bowling first): Vala is in great form with the bat & is consistently scoring runs recently. Bowling first, will be a great captaincy choice. Also scored a fifty against Scotland few days back. 

Last 5 innings (including warmups): 56, 51, 32, 1, 55 (vs Scotland) 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Charles Amini (bowling first): Offers you good allround value and is in great touch with the bat. Just like Vala, prefer if he bows first. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

George Munsey: If there’s any pure batsman that you can or you should try in small leagues in this game, then Munsey Is the best choice available. The very aggressive left-handed Scottish batsman also scored a match winning knock against the same side few days back. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Brad Wheal: In form & looked great in the last game against Bangladesh. Should bowl 1-2 overs at the death as well. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Mark Watt: Always a very reliable choice. Even though there are plenty of left handers in the PNG lineup, Watt is one of those rare LAO spinners who are even better against LHB than the RHB. His SR against LHB is just 12.8, while against RHB it is over 20. Also has good numbers against PNG. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

GL pick: 

Michael Leask (batting first): Can bowl few overs against the left handers, as Macleod bowled 4 overs against them when Leask was not playing. Batting first, can expect few big hits from his bat as well. 

Captaincy suitability: GL only. 

Richie Berrington (batting first): GL only 

This game is more suited to play GLs, so invest accordingly.
