Papua New Guinea, want to go one better than they did in 2010 and 2012, and win the 2014 Pepsi ICC East-Asia Pacific (EAP) Women’s Trophy, to be held in Sano, Japan from 7-11 May.
The Pacific MMI Papua New Guinea Lewas completed their final week of preparations, as they prepare to jet off on Sunday 4th May, for the all important ICC East-Asia Pacific (EAP) Women’s Trophy, to be held in Sano, Japan from 7-11 May. The five countries competing include PNG, hosts Japan, Cook Islands, Samoa and Vanuatu.
The Lewas have set their goal of claiming the T20 cup and progressing through to the next stage of the World Cup qualifying stage, after losing to Japan in the last two ICC EAP women’s trophies,
If PNG are to obtain the desired number one spot in the EAP region, they must knock off their biggest rival over the last four years – host nation and tournament favourites – Japan. To beat Japan, the belief is that the team must learn from past performances and adapt faster to the new conditions.
With Women's cricket in PNG now on the cusp of moving into a new era this represents an opportunity to rival the Men's Cricket team's achievements. On that note, Team PNG’s first game will be against Vanuatu on the 7th May
