Charles Amini and skipper Assad Vala sunk their teeth into the repair job after Papua New Guinea lost both their openers for nought in the T20 World Cup opener against Oman. The co-hosts began with a bang, with express pacer Bilal Khan accounting for Tony Ura and Lega Siaka falling prey to Kaleemullah's craft. However, the middle-order mainstays dug in and guided PNG to a respectable 80/2 after 11 overs before a case of miscommunication saw Amini being run out for an unfulfilled 37 off just 26 balls.

His terrific knock of 37 comes to an end after some brilliant bit of fielding from Oman to force a run out. #T20WorldCup | #OMNvPNG | https://t.co/dYPcIueHIP pic.twitter.com/QSKJCTl8H0
