The PNG Hebou Barramundis returned this afternoon after a not so successful tour in Queensland, Australia, where the PNG side was defeated by Queensland, Tasmania and Western Australia in three respective 50 overs ODIs last week.
Head Coach, Dipak Patel, said the losses are disappointing, but it was also a good experience for the Barramundis.
With just a month before hosting Namibia for the Inter-Continental Cup on at home, Coach Patel said more work will be put into the Barramundis training.
Competing against bigger competition in Australia was an ideal experience for a lesser experienced team like the Barramundis.
Their training sessions now have to be more vigorous in order to better themselves, said Patel.
He added, there were some key moments in the matches with the Australian Teams where the Barramundis could have grabbed a winning opportunity but the team was inexperienced and that is something that’s going to change now, as the Barramundis now have more international meets lined up.
The PNG side will be in Darwin, next week for another ODI with the South Australia Cricket Association Premier League.
These consecutive matches are expected to put them in a better position to face Namibia, come October.
