Papua New Guinea are eying top spot in the World Cricket League Championship.
The Barramundis host Nambia in two one-day matches in the World Cricket League Championship, on Friday and Sunday in Port Moresby, having thrashed the African side by 199 runs in their four-day Intercontinental Cup match earlier this week.
PNG are fourth in the World Cricket League standings with four wins from six matches, including two home wins over Kenya in May.
Cricket PNG Chief Executive Officer Greg Campbell said there was a lot riding on their next two matches.
"If they win the next two rounds that makes everyone in that top eight have played the same amount of games and we'll actually go to the top of the ladder," he said.
"There's a big prize at the end of it - at the end of 2017 whoever finishes on top of that will get automatic qualification to a World Cup.
"If the boys win the next two games - or one out of the next two - they'll go to second or first on the ladder - to be honest I don't think anyone would have thought of that."
Greg Campbell said they were expecting a crowd of two or three thousand fans at each of the one-day matches while the VIP tent had already been booked out for both days.
