West Indies vs Papua New Guinea 2nd Match T20 Worldcup Highlights

WI vs PNG 2nd Match T20 Worldcup Highlights | WI beat PNG by five wickets. PNG scores 136/8 runs in 20 overs, while WI chase this score in 19 overs (137/5) and easily wins the Match

West Indies narrowly avoided an upset against Papua New Guinea (PNG) in their T20 World Cup opener, winning by five wickets. Chasing a modest 137, West Indies found themselves in trouble at 97 for 5, needing 40 runs from the last 24 balls.

Roston Chase played a crucial role, scoring an unbeaten 42 off 27 balls, while Andre Russell’s timely six helped ease the pressure. Despite West Indies’ shaky start and PNG’s spirited performance, including a notable 50 from Sese Bau, Chase’s late-game heroics secured the win for the hosts.

PNG came close to causing a major upset, especially when West Indies struggled early in their innings. Nicholas Pooran’s 27 and Brandon King’s boundaries helped keep West Indies in the game, but PNG spinners tightened the screws, leading to tense moments.

PNG could have put West Indies in deeper trouble had they reviewed a crucial not-out decision against Pooran. Despite PNG’s strong bowling and strategic play, West Indies managed to hold their nerve, thanks to Chase and Russell, narrowly achieving their target and avoiding an embarrassing defeat.
