The 2019 Men's World Cup Qualifier Asia 2nd Round match between Nepal and PNG will be played at the Kathmandu International Cricket Ground in Nepal. Both teams have won only one game in this tournament so far, and Nepal will go into this game on top of the points table by virtue of their win over Malaysia earlier in the tournament. It'll be interesting to see if Papua New Guinea can find some form against a team that has been struggling for goals but showing some signs of improvement recently. We're expecting a low-scoring affair with plenty of draws so far at this stage!

Nepal has been playing well in the recent past. The team won two matches out of the three that it played during the ongoing series against Papua New Guinea. Nepal also played well against Hong Kong and managed to win by a narrow margin of four runs.

Papua New Guinea will be eager to get the better of Nepal as they have lost their previous two encounters against them. They are coming into this match after a 3-2 loss against Hong Kong in their last match, which was played on July 27, 2019.
Papua New Guinea registered their first win in the tournament when they defeated Thailand by 5 wickets by chasing down 158 runs in 21 overs. The other two matches against Nepal and Hong Kong ended up being losses for them, which has left them with three points from three games played so far in this tournament.
Hong Kong outplayed Papua New Guinea towards the end of the game when they captured all 10 wickets after bowling out PNG for just 211 runs; courtesy an impressive unbeaten knock from Anshuman Rath who scored 74 runs off 52 balls before he got run-out while looking comfortable at the crease.
