Papua New Guinea drew first blood in their one day cricket series against Hong Kong as a record-breaking century from Lega Siaka laid the platform for a comfortable 76 run victory.
After winning the toss and electing to bat first at Amini Park in Port Moresby, the Barramundis slumped to 34 for 4 after 12 overs, with Eshan Nawaz snaring 4 for 26 with the ball.
Siaka came to the crease and let loose, bludgeoning 188 not out off 118 balls, including 10 fours and an astonishing 12 sixes.
The highest ever score by a Barramundis' player in an international match helped PNG post a mammoth 341 for 9 from their 50 overs.
In reply, Hong Kong openers Mohammad Nizakat Khan (58) and Anshuman Rath (34) put on 65 runs for the opening wicket.
The visitors were still in contention at 193 for 4 after 35 overs but regular wickets made them unable to keep up with the required run-rate.
Hong Kong were eventually dismissed for 265 in the 49th over, with Charles Amini Junior and Chad Soper both nabbing three wickets.
The three-match one days series continues today in Port Moresby.
