11:26 am on 27 January 2011

Papua New Guinea has secured promotion to World Cricket League 2 after thrashing Denmark by nine wickets yesterday.

That made it four wins in a row for the Barramundi's, who can relax as the other five teams in Hong Kong fight for the one remaining promotion spot from Division 3.

Aftab Ahmed top scored for the Danes with 39 not out as they were eventually dismissed for 112 inside 42 overs.

In reply, Asad Vala was the only batsmen to lose his wicket as Chris Amini and Tony Ura knocked off the required runs in just 22.3 overs.
