They are part of a combined ICC East Asia Pacific team involving players from the region including Japan, Samoa, Indonesia and Vanuatu, with PNG having the biggest representation.

Their wins so far have been over Western Australia by 38 runs, South Australia by 6 wickets, QLD by 8 wickets and NSW by 7 wickets in dominating performances.
