West Indies vs PNG Live Scores & Updates: Match 2, ICC T20 World Cup 2024

The West Indies and Papua New Guinea will meet in the highly anticipated match number 2 of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Providence Stadium, Guyana on Sunday, June 2.

West Indies (team news)

The West Indies begin their Caribbean leg of the 2024 T20 World Cup against Papua New Guinea in Providence. After winning the trophy in 2012 and 2016, West Indies have struggled in the last two editions.

In 2021, they only managed one win in five matches, resulting in elimination from the Super 12. In 2022, their campaign was even more disappointing as they failed to reach the Super 12 and lost to Ireland and Scotland in the first round.

Papua New Guinea (Team News)

Papua New Guinea (PNG) might seem like an easy rival on paper. However, given the unpredictable nature of the West Indies, a slip-up would not be entirely surprising. PNG brings an aging team but one that is not lacking in experience on the big stage.

While PNG is keen to assert its dominance over the group’s other partner team, Uganda, it has nothing to lose in its attempts to pressure the three full members.

A loss to PNG could jeopardize the West Indies’ chances of progressing to the next round. Most of their players come from a hectic IPL schedule which, while beneficial in terms of experience, requires quick adaptation to slower local conditions.

Launch Report: Providence Stadium, Guyana

Expect a slower surface at this venue throughout the tournament; the highest total recorded at the venue in international cricket in the last 13 years has been 169 for 5. There is a chance of passing showers and some cloudiness. But most of the time it will still be sunny and we will likely have a full game.
