UAE beats Papua New Guinea by 150 runs in World Cup qualifying

  • Print

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Captain Khurram Khan made a career-best 138 as top-seeded United Arab Emirates beat Papua New Guinea by 150 runs in the first round of Super Six matches at the International Cricekt Council World Cup qualifying tournament.

Khan's 145-ball innings, which included 17 fours and two sixes, led UAE to 280 after being 57-3 and PNG slumped to 45-5 before being all out for 130 at Christchurch.

PNG had been the over-achievers of the group stage, qualifying at the top of their pool and carrying over four points in the Super Six series. That placed them on the brink of qualifying for its first-ever World Cup but their loss to the UAE was a heavy setback.

Kenya beat Hong Kong by 10 runs in a rain-affected match. Scotland-Namibia was halted by rain and will be concluded Monday.

The two finalists from the tournament qualify for the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
