6-41

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Medium pacer Chad Soper be­came the first player from Pa­pua New Guinea to claim a five-wicket haul in a List A game. His match haul of 6-41 helped his team win their sec­ond one-day in­ter­na­tional against Hong Kong by 14 runs. Both teams have won one game each in the three-match ODI se­ries. Though the na­tion be­came an ICC mem­ber in 1973, they gained ODI and T20I sta­tus only in 2014. Pa­pua New Guinea are the only team to have won their first two ODIs in in­ter­na­tional cricket.
