Successful year for Barras and Lewas

first_imgThe Barramundis started the year with a hard fought defeat in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Intercontinental Cup (ICUP) and T20 International Series to Ireland, before defeating Kenya at home in the ICC World Cricket League (WCL).Then they travelled to Australia to compete in the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) Premier League where they finished a very respectable third place on 34 points with four wins, three draws and one loss.The Barramundis continued their winning ways defeating Namibia in the ICUP and WCL matches at home, to propel them into top place in the WCLC and fourth place in the ICUP after four rounds. The Barramundis finished the year with a 2-1 defeat in a One Day International (ODI) Series in Hong Kong. “The Barramundis went from strength to strength this year and they have a wonderful opportunity to finish in the top four of both the ICUP and WCL next year.“Credit must go to the High Performance Department, led by Rarua Dikana and Head Coach, Dipak Patel, coaches and the players for their hard work and professionalism this year.“Already, the HEBOU PNG Barramundis have a busy 2017 Schedule, with matches against Australian State Teams, Scotland, Hong Kong, Scotland, UAE and possibly English County Teams and International 2nd XI Teams planned,” said Campbell.The Lewas also had a very successful year, winning the ICC East Asia Pacific (EAP) Women’s Trophy in Samoa without losing a single match.This victory meant that they qualified for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier in Sri Lanka in February, 2017. “The Lewas improved outstandingly in 2016, with a larger pool of female players vying for selection in the national team from all parts of PNG.“There is a great opportunity for the girls to show their skills against some of the best women cricketers in Sri Lanka next year, but also qualify for an ICC World Cup for the first time.“Rodney Maha (Coach) and Cathryn Fitzpatrick (Consultant Coach) must be given a lot of credit to grooming these women into international cricketers.“There is still a lot of work to be done both on and off the field but we are on the right track,” said Campbell.last_img read more
