Sport: Simple equation for PNG cricketers

12:31 pm on 27 November 2013

Papua New Guinea are keeping the message simple before Wednesday's must win game against Namibia at the World 20/20 qualifying tournament in Dubai.

The Barramundi's beat Bermuda at the weekend to snap a four game winless run and sneak into the knockout rounds.

Afghanistan and Ireland have already qualified for next year's World Cup as respective group winners.

PNG must beat Namibia tonight to advance to a winner takes all match against Nepal or Hong Kong to confirm their place in Bangladesh.

The General Manager of Cricket PNG, Greg Campbell, says they haven't been overcomplicating things.

"It's a simple equation - you've probably done the hard part coming back to make sure we qualify - we just go down there and get two wins and the apple or golden rainbow at the end is a very big prize so we're looking forward to it. If anything we're going to go in as underdogs so we see ourselves as a big threat. Some of the write-ups we've been getting here have been saying the same thing so we're looking forward to the next couple of days."
