11:20 am on 22 July 2015

Papua New Guinea face Afghanistan in a winner takes all clash tomorrow for a spot at next year's World Twenty20 cricket tournament in India.

Afghanistan get another life after losing to Hong Kong by five wickets overnight.

Hong Kong scored 16 runs off the last five balls to surpass the Afghan total of 161 for 7.

The Netherlands have also advanced to next year's global event, beating Namibia by four wickets.

PNG will be hoping to go one step better after missing out at the final hurdle two years ago.
