Three teams are set to battle for one place at the International Cricket Council's Twenty20 World Cup qualifier at the regional finals for the East Asia-Pacific region.

Hosts Papua New Guinea will welcome Vanuatu and The Philippines for a double round-robin tournament where each country will play the other twice.

The nation to finish top will book their place at the men's World Cup qualifier which will be held in the United Arab Emirates in October and November.

All three countries had to book their place at the regional final with Papua New Guinea winning Group A of the sub-regional qualifier with a 100 per cent record from six matches.

Vanuatu finished second in the group, winning two of their six matches and progressing via run-rate after a three-way tie with Samoa and Fiji.

It means they will start as underdogs to upset Papua New Guinea on home turf.

Philippines won Group B of the sub-regional qualifier, winning five out of their six matches against South Korea, Japan and Indonesia.

Papua New Guinea will be hosting the tournament at Amini Park in capital city Port Moresby.

They will play twice on the opening day tomorrow against both of their opponents.

The tournament will conclude on March 23.

Scotland, Zimbabwe, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Oman and Ireland have already booked a spot at the World Cup qualifier.

Six countries will advance through the tournament to earn a space at the 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia.
