PNG cricketers begin campaign for 2019 World Cup

The top two teams from the 10-nation Qualifiers will book their ticket to next year's World Cup in England while the three highest-ranked Associate teams apart from the Netherlands will get the one-day global status for the next three years.

"Even though we didn't get enough runs, our bowling display was excellent and congrats must go to all the bowlers for putting in a very good performance, especially Kemar Roach in the early part of their innings".

The World Cup Qualifier begins on Sunday, while the West Indies begin their campaign in the competition on Tuesday against the UAE, the team against whom they had to toil hard to win in the warm-up leg. We had two good outings in the warm-up games and now it's about business.

On the eve of the qualifier for next year's ICC Cricket World Cup, which will be played in England, Afghanistan chief coach Phil Simmons sounded optimistic. He also took 14 wickets at an average of 19.00, the best for a PNG bowler. "We have just come here to play cricket, we need to play proper cricket and win this tournament", Simmons said in an ICC statement.

Ovechkin scores 40th as Caps rip Leafs for outdoor win
There were curlers - the USA men's Olympic gold medallists - sweeping the game puck to the centre-ice dot on a curling stone. That's a lot of outdoor hockey in a decade, but the Leafs and the Capitals are looking forward to this year's version.

He added: "We didn't go so well in the first warm-up match against Afghanistan, which didn't go according to plan, so we had to get things together".

"All of us are looking forward to the tournament".

Nikita Miller said getting to the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales was the main objective of West Indies above anything else.

Ten Doeschate was due to play in South Africa's Global Twenty 20 competition at the end of previous year but when it was cancelled he went with the Dutch team to Dubai where they successfully won a place in the final qualifiers in Zimbabwe. Currently, West Indies is on the No-9 position of ODI rankings, and Young Afganistan is one step away from them by standing No-10 Position on ODI Rankings. There are four Test nations here, they are probably, and quite rightly, thinking they have World Cup qualification very much in their hands. The UAE must finish in the top three between Nepal, Scotland, Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea to maintain their ODI status and continue receiving ICC funding until 2022.
