11:01 am on 28 May 2015

The PNG women's cricket team will arrive home today after completing a clean sweep of their Samoa counterparts.

The Lewas dismissed Samoa for 55 and 54 in the two Twenty20 matches, reaching their victory targets with eight and ten wickets to spare.

Norma Ovasuru was the star performer, claiming 2 for 11 in the first game and 3 for 9 in the second, where she also top-scored with 36 not out.

PNG coach Rodney Maha says the team is now more confident and focused for the Pacific Games in July, after four wins against one of their chief rivals.
