Ludhiana: Jatinder was very strong against the slow bowlers and rocked back, beating them in midwicket for Sixes while wearing his form from the 2019 qualifier, where he was the best ranger in his adopted home.
Ludhiana-born Jatinder Singh broke an undefeated record of 73 when co-host Oman beat Papua New Guinea (PNG). By 10 wickets in the opening game of the T20 World Cup Group B first round here on Sunday.
Jatinder, very strong against slow bowlers, was swinging back and beating them by six in midwicket.
While wearing his form from the 2019 qualifier, where he was the best player from his adopted country.
“They were batting very well when I got the wickets. because we got the wickets. They couldn’t put on a big total. I just try to keep it tight and not give away loose balls. We knew the wicket was playing very well. We needed to make sure we didn’t give away loose balls and easy boundaries,” Maqsood, who was adjudged ‘Player of the Match’. Said at the post-game presentation ceremony.
Sent at-bat, PNG lost both starters with no points before Vala broke 56 of 43 balls. Using four limits and three sixes. While Charles Amini made 37 of 26 balls to sew 81 runs for the third wicket.
But after that, PNG experienced another batting meltdown when it lost its next six wickets by just 37 runs.
Maqsood was without a doubt the bowler’s choice for Oman, but Bilal Khan (2/16) and Kallemullah (2/19) with a medium pace also put up some wickets each.
Oman will face Bangladesh in the next Group B match on Tuesday, while PNG will also face Scotland on the same day.
