Their thrilling palm over Papua New Guinea has helped Indonesia women secure a place in coming time's T20 World Cup.

Eighteen- time-old bowler Ayu Kurniaratini held jitters of sword as he went into the final over with PNG demanding just two runs to win.

Kurniartini picked up two lattices in the first two balls of the over and closed out the game, at any rate putting his side in their first ICC World Cup.

Indonesia captain Wesikaratna Dewey was rapturous with the result and has his sights set on the future.

"I am veritably happy and veritably proud of the platoon, Dewey said." I can not believe we have reached this stage, but we are now determined to make all of Indonesia proud of our success at the World Cup."

Both brigades put on a show in the best- of- three event, with PNG's Dikka Lohia winning both the stylish bowler and player of the event awards. His match- winning five- gate haul in Game 2 was backed up by an unbeaten 25 in a successful run chase with5/8.

Persatuan Cricket Indonesia( PCI) has clearly taken a big step towards fulfilling their vision of developing' an Indonesian game that builds public pride and unites the country through transnational success'.

PCI Acting speaker Abhiram Singh Yadav said, “ We've worked veritably hard to get to this point and this represents a new corner for women's sports in Indonesia. I can not stay to show our unique Indonesian style and culture to the rest of the South African world."
