Muscat: Scotland have won the toss and elected to bowl first against Papua New Guinea in their second match of the ICC T20 World Cup.
Victory against PNG will bring the Scottish side one step closer to the Super 12 stage. The side registered a shocking six-run victory against Bangladesh, which is one the highlight of the tournament thus far.
Meanwhile, Papua New Guinea are a loss away from an early exit, less than 48 hours after their maiden T20 World Cup outing against Oman.
Both sides are familiar with the conditions in Oman, having been in a country for over a month now. They also played two 50-over matches and a T20I in the last three weeks alone against each other.
Scotland and Papua New Guinea have met twice in T20Is, with the former winning on both occasions.
In their most recent meeting, on October 8, Scotland won by eight wickets after chasing down 155 to win with 13 balls to spare.
