Papua New Guinea have beaten Oman by two wickets in a rain-affected one day cricket match in Dubai.

The game was the first of two warm-up clashes for the Barramundi's, who take on Nepal in the World Cricket League Championship next week.

Oman made 244 for 8 batting first, with Norman Vanua the pick of the bowlers, snaring 4 for 35 from eight overs.

In reply, PNG's top six batsmen all managed at least 27 runs, with Mahura Dai top-scoring on 47.

He was dismissed in the first ball of the final over but PNG held their nerve to reach their target with one ball to spare.
