Baras back in training

The PNG Hebou Barramundi’s are back in training to host an international cricket series match in May.


Since returning from ODI matches in Darwin, Australia last month, the team took a three week break and resumed training yesterday as they gear up to play Kenya.

Baramundis captain Jack Vare said they will maintain the session through the seven weeks.

The series will be played at the home of the Barra’s, the Amini Park in Port Moresby.

“The boys have been away for quite a while since last year attending matches in Australia and training overseas and needed a timeout with families,” Vare said.

"Some of the players are young fathers and family time is much appreciated as most support comes from their families back at home when they are out playing."

On the other end, the PNG Lewas have also commenced training last week for the East Asia Pacific Cup in Samoa in late June and early July.

The Lewa’s are in top form and are the current Pacific champions.
