Papua New Guinea have ticked off another milestone in their cricketing journey, winning the inaugural South Australian Premier League Twenty20 title.

The Barramundis clinched the title by beating Northern Territory in Sunday's deciding match at the Adelaide Oval.

Pipi Raho ripped through the NT order, taking 4 for 20 as the Strike were rolled for just 94, with PNG reaching their victory target with 21 balls and four wickets to spare.

It capped a great weekend for PNG, who beat the Western Grit on Friday and South Australian Outbacks on Saturday.

Next they head to New Zealand in January to compete in the 50 over World Cup qualifiers.
