Everyday People: Jason Kila

It’s been helping me to stay disciplined. And I’ve grown.

Cricket has taught me how to be professional off the field as well.

Like my other teammates, family played a big part in the sport.

As a little boy growing up in Hula, Central Province, I always watched my uncle, Vavine Pala’s cricket games.

Pala, one of PNG’s pioneer cricketers, featured in the first ICC Trophy tournament in 1979.

​8 Barras players on scholarship

Cricket PNG (CPNG) made the announcement today.


Current HEBOU PNG Barramundis player Kila Pala and three development players, Jason Kila, Kiplin Doriga and Doura Gavera flew to Canberra last week to join their respective cricket clubs for the upcoming cricket season in Canberra.

Four (4) more players will join them in the next month or so to participate in the program which for the first time CPNG will be partnering with Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Cricket.
