Everyday People: Karoho Kevau

I want to play like Nosaina Pokana because he’s a left arm bowler too.

I started playing in the Pari Cricket Club at the age of seven.

Eleven years later, I am in the PIH Under 19 Cricket PNG team.

When I was picked, I was very happy, and I was proud. 

My family was very happy for me too.

I am not the only one in my family to represent PNG in cricket. 

I am following in my cousin’s (Vagi Kalo) footsteps. He also made the U19 PNG cricket team a few years back. 

I am proud to carry that legacy through.

As the U19 team continues to train hard and prepare for their World Cup games in the West Indies, I want to encourage my teammates to simply go out and play well.  That is the same talk I give myself. 

Yes, I’m ready for the World Cup.

I just want to go there and play well and one day become a Barramundis player, just like Nosaina.

I want to experience playing other international teams. 

I look forward mostly to playing against Pakistan.
