PNG beat Fiji for title

Andrew McGlashan

Papua New Guinea beat Fiji by 30 runs in the final of the South Pacific Games tournament.

PNG fought their way to 164 after electing to bat, but couldn't use up their overs as they were dismissed for 164.

However, it proved more than enough as Fiji folded for 135.

Andrew began his cricket writing as a freelance covering Lancashire during 2004 when they were relegated in the County Championship. In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill. He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities.
