PNG Barras Beat Yorkshire By 11 Runs


The Hebou Papua New Guinea Barramundis once again showed what they were made of in yesterday’s clash with the English County Yorkshire, beating them by 11 runs.

The 2-day practice match saw the PNG side posting a massive 7/266 (7 for 266) on just Day One.

Batsman Tony Ura contributed 93 runs that sent PNG on their way.

The Barramundis bowled out a very strong Yorkshire side for 255 in less than 84 overs to win their first match on the UAE Tour.

It was not an easy win for the Barramundis. The English men went prepared, with the likes of Test Cricketers Garry Balance and Adam Lyth.

Their leading batsman Andrew Hodd gave the Barras trouble, when he ran a century.

That was when PNG bowler Nosiana Pokana saw the need to do something, and ended Hodds running streak, just after the century.

Yorkshire fell short of the 266 target, with only 255 runs on the score board.

The Barramundis will encounter some more English cricket, before they take on host, United Arab Emirates, for the ICUP and the WCLC.

The Barras are placed 4th on the ICC ICU standing and 2nd in the WCLC, whilst their opponents, UAE are ranked 8th in both competitions.
