PIH U19 PNG Garamuts

Everyday People: Aue Oru

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

I am from Pari village in Central Province. 

I have been playing cricket for several years now and it is a great game to play and enjoy. 

I’ve played cricket since I was in grade six.

I am the first in my family to play cricket.

My family was elated when they got news of me joining the U19 train-on squad. 

Everyday people: Boio Ray

I have just completed Grade 11 at the Port Moresby Grammar School; that was one part of training that was hard for me but I just go to school and after school, I join the boys in training.

Usually the U19 team would train for at least six months, but for us it’s shorter than that.

As with other countries participating in the ICC U19 Men’s World Cup, the global pandemic has caused the unfortunate short and unconventional timeframe for the U19 team to train. 

However, we have taken on the challenge with guts and grit. 

Garamuts In Good Spirits

PNG Cricket stalwart and National Talent ID Manager Rodney Maha has been given the role to take charge of the team for their maiden world cup campaign.

Heading to ICC U19 World Cup in the West Indies is a dream come true for the 15 young talented cricketers that make up the final PNG U19 squad.

The official announcement of the final travelling squad was made early this week. The team, including two non-traveling reserves, will be captained by Barnabas Maha.

This is young Maha’s 2nd time to lead as captain.
