The first ODI between Scotland and Papua New Guinea will be played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on November 24. PNG will play a two-match warm-up series with Scotland prior to facing Hong Kong in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Intercontinental Cup. The last encounter with Scotland earlier this year was not so good for PNG. They lost the last match by 101 runs. But this time PNG is looking more confident and prepared says the captain Assad Vala. It will be interesting to watch if PNG can take an edge over Scotland or not.
