Papua New Guinea 264 for 7 (Siaka 109, Morea 65*) defeated Hong Kong 261 (Hayat 56, Rath 55, Vanua 4-60, Gavera 3-49) by three wickets
VANI Morea slammed the second ball of the final over of the chase to the midwicket boundary to confirm Papua New Guinea's second victory over Hong King this weekend.
It made PNG the first team to win their first two ODIs and sparked emotional scenes - their captain Chris Amini choked back tears as he spoke after the win, while the team joyously belted out a victory song.
The chase of 262 had been guided by No 3 Lega Siaka (pictured), who scored his country's first ODI century. In the 42nd over, however, he thumped the ball towards long-on, and though Morea was always keen for the second, Siaka seemed less enthusiastic and was run out at the keeper's end.
