The Barramundis on their first week on the Sri Lankan Tour, suffered their third loss against, a firing Sri Lankan Emerging 11.
Barras top scorer, Assad Vala, capped 53 runs but the Barras fell short when both bowlers, and fielders, were unable to catch wickets. Barramundis were bowled out 10 for 226 runs after 43 overs.
It was a much improved batting display, by the China Harbor PNG Barramundis batsmen, but their bowlers were not able to close down the match as the hosts handed the Barras their 3rd loss on tour.
Forced to the brink, the last 3 wickets of Vanua, Willie Gavera and Pipi Raho fell cheaply and PNG were bowled out for 226 after 43 overs.
Barras won the toss with Assad Vala, and Lega Siaka’s partnership opening the match with 27 runs, before Siaka was bowled out at the 5th over. Assad’s combination with Tony Ura, bolted another 34 runs, before Ure was dismissed at the 11th over mark.
Charles Amini batted number 4 adding 14 runs before he got trapped LBW, and PNG were soon 3 out for 75 runs.
A 4th wicket, 47 run partnership between Captain Jack Vare, and Assad Vala, took the score to 120 runs at the 20 over mark, before Vala was caught out for a well compiled half-century.
The Sri Lankan batters came out firing as they raced to 69 runs in 10 overs. Batsman Andy Solomon smashed a quick fire 50 of 36 balls, before Norman Vanua dismissed him in the 10th over.
Sri Lanka chased down the target in 31 overs for the loss of 7 wickets. Barras fielding was uncharacteristically off, and the bowlers found the going tough with Willie Gavera, and Norman Vanua, picking up 2 wickets each and Pipi Raho, Charles Amini and John Boge taking out a wicket each.
