Hong Kong have qualified for the 2014 ICC World Twenty20 after a 29-run win over Papua New Guinea in Abu Dhabi.
Having missed the chance to book their spot by losing to Nepal on Wednesday, Hong Kong made the most of their second chance.
Babar Hayat top scored with 48 as Hong Kong recovered from 19-4 to make 137-9 after they chose to bat first in the qualifying play-off at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
And left-arm spinner Haseeb Amjad claimed 3-26 as Papua New Guinea - whose team included former England wicketkeeper Geraint Jones - were bowled out for 108 in reply.
"I think it was a good lesson for us losing yesterday and the guys really turned up today and showed fighting spirit," said Waqas Barkat, leading Hong Kong due to Jamie Atkinson's thumb injury.
On the prospect of making their World T20 debut, Barkat added: "It means a lot, I have no words for that."
The World Twenty20 will take place in Bangladesh from March 16 to April 6 next year.
The 10 full ICC members are joined by six teams from the qualification tournament; Afghanistan, Ireland, United Arab Emirates, Nepal, Hong Kong and the Netherlands.
