Sport: PNG Barramundi's look to end on winning note

Papua New Guinea's cricketers have a chance this weekend to atone for their worst performance in the South Australian Premier League.

The Barramundi's have won four of their five completed matches so far, with two games rained out.

Their only blemish was an 86 run defeat in a one day match against the Western Grit two weeks ago.

The two sides meet again in a two-day match in Adelaide and Barramundi's coach Dipak Patel wants his side to build on their recent performances.

"We're the international team in this competition and my goal for the guys has been that we should be sort of leading the way and I think in many ways we've proved it," he said.

"Tomorrow's game is no different and certainly winning the game would certainly emphasise that we're making good progression, not only as a team but as an international team."

Patel said the players are starting to get a lot more professional in their preparation, both on and off the field.

"If we can get more consistent cricket of this nature I think you'll start to see the full potential of the PNG cricketers."

Following this match the PNG returns home to Port Moresby for international games against Namibia.
