In a major boost for Cricket PNG, the Hebou PNG Barramundis will take on Tasmania tomorrow, Western Australia on Friday and Queensland next Monday over the space of a week in 50 over matches at the Maroochydore Cricket Ground on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
Cricket PNG CEO Greg Campbell said this is a wonderful opportunity for our Hebou PNG Barramundis to play against some of the best elite cricketers from an ICC Full-Member Country (Australia).
“It will be a great test for our squad, playing against hardened, professional cricketers and also be a great opportunity for our boys to promote themselves as cricketers for potential future state and Big Bash opportunities,” Campbell remarked.
Adding that these matches will get the boys back into the game after a while being on training in the country.
“The matches will be a warm up to the annual South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) Premier League and the Inter-Continental Cup (I-Cup) before the World Cricket League Championships (WCLC) matches in October against Namibia.
