Post Match Presentation.
Richie Berrington is the Player of the Match:
“We got just over par on that wicket,” he says. “At first we didn’t have a target in mind, and just wanted to get used to the wicket. Thankfully we managed to get that big partnership which was quite key in the end.”
PNG skipper Assad Vala says:
“Getting exposure, playing more games, and testing ourselves against quality opposition would be good. If we can get more exposure we might be able to express ourselves better. Scotland are a really good bowling team and they put us under pressure and we crumbled. The lower order brought us back into it.”
Kyle Coetzer says:
“We know PNG with their attack can really squeeze second half if they’ve got a score on the board. So we tried to put a score on the board and put them under pressure. PNG put us in the pressure second half. The way Norman came out and struck the ball, it’s so very dangerous.
