Sese Bau top scored for Papua New Guinea with a steady 50 runs against the West Indies as PNG posted 136/8 in 20 overs in the 2nd T 20I match of World Cup 2024 being played at the Providence Stadium in Georgetown on Sunday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Put into bat first, PNG recovered from a disastrous start, courtesy of a fighting half-century from Sese Bau.

PNG were two down for just seven runs inside three overs as their opener Tony Ura (2) and Lega Siaka (1) perished cheaply.

Following the slump, Bau joined skipper Asad Vala at the crease and the duo batted sensibly in a bid to anchor the innings.

They added 27 runs for the third wicket before Vala perished on the final delivery of the powerplay after scoring 21 off 22 deliveries. He hit two fours and a six.

Bau then put together a brief one-sided partnership with Hiri Hiri (2) before receiving subtle support at the other end in the form of Charles Amini.

Bau and Amini recorded PNG’s most successful partnership which yielded 44 runs in 37 deliveries.

The fifth-wicket stand lasted with Amini’s dismissal on the final delivery of the 15th over, who scored 12 off 14.

Sese Bau, on the other hand, perished an over later, just after amassing his gritty half-century. He remained the top-scorer for PNG against West Indies with a 43-ball 50 which featured six fours and a six.

Following Bau’s dismissal, wicketkeeper batter Kiplin Doriga took the reigns of PNG’s batting charge and added valuable runs at the backend with his unbeaten cameo.

Doriga scored 27 not out off 18 deliveries with the help of three boundaries.

Andre Russell and Alzarri Joseph led the bowling attack for the West Indies with two wickets each while Akeal Hosein, Romario Shepherd and Gudakesh Motie chipped in a wicket apiece.
