Betting Tips
  • Emmanuel Bawa made 61 in a warm-up game against Canada last week and is our tip for Zimbabwe’s highest run scorer in this match.
  • Victor Chirwa took 2-31 against Canada and the slow left-arm bowler is a strong choice for Zimbabwe's top wicket taker against Papua New Guinea.
  • Keeper-batter Peter Karoho is a good strokemaker at the top of the order for Papua New Guinea. He is our pick for their highest run scorer in this game.

Zimbabwe U19 vs PNG U19 Prediction & Betting Tips, U19 World Cup 2022

Zimbabwe will take on Papua New Guinea in Match 6 of the Under-19 World Cup. This 50-over match will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad on January 15 starting at 10:00 local time.

Zimbabwe have qualified for every Under-19 World Cup from 1998 onwards and have progressed beyond the group stage in 1998, 2004 and 2006. In the 2020 tournament, they beat Scotland by 8 wickets but were on the receiving end of a 38 run defeat against Pakistan and a 9 wicket defeat against Bangladesh. They finished 11th overall and will see this game as must-win with fixtures against Afghanistan and Pakistan still to come. Batter Emmanuel Bawa will captain the side in this tournament. 

2021 saw Papua New Guinea compete in a senior World Cup for the first time and it is no surprise to see their Under-19 side qualify for another World Cup. They were not present during the 2020 tournament but this will be their ninth appearance in this competition since 1998. They last won a World Cup match in 2012 and expectations are relatively low ahead of this tournament. Barnabas Maha will lead the team in this campaign and they will target this match as their most winnable fixture.
