At the World 20-20 qualifying tournament in the United Arab Emirates, Papua New Guinea are on the brink of making it to the World Finals for the first time.

Overnight they defeated Namibia by 25 runs in Abu Dhabi, and now they go on to play Hong Kong.

Victory in that match will guarantee the Barramundis a top six finish, and a place alongside Australia and the other leading nations at the World 20-20 finals in Bangladesh next March.

To find out what impact the results are having in PNG Bruce Hill spoke to Gayan Loku, Cricket PNG's Game Development manager.
