PIH PNG Garramuts U19

Garras Lose To Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe were 9 out for 321 from 50 overs. Garramuts were all out for 93.

In the end it was a big defeat however after the first 20 overs of the Garramuts’ bowling innings, which surprised a few people. 

The talent was right there with Junior Morea, Rasan Kevau and Christopher Kilapat all with the makings off strong bowlers with good pace, solid actions and seemingly good control. Young wicketkeeper Peter Karaho was fantastic behind the stumps with a brilliant stumping and good energy including no byes off his tidy wicket keeping. 

Garras Draw Changed

Due to visa issues for the Afghanistan U19 side, PNG Garramuts will now take on ICC full member testing playing nation Zimbabwe rather than Pakistan, as per previous schedule.

For the Garramuts, it’s all about pride in the jersey, pride in the colours and pride in representing their country.

The Garras World Cup campaign started on a sour note with heavy losses to the United Arab Emirates and England in their warm up matches.

However critics say if the PNG boys can play with pride and give everything they got, there’s no reason they can’t upset the African nation.
