Well Wishes for CPL Lewas

It has come to the eleventh hour for the CPL PNG Lewas, before they take leave for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Cricket PNG Deputy Chairperson, Helen Mackindoe, is confident that this 14-woman squad is just as good as opponents, South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Scotland.

Going to Sri Lanka next month would be the CPL PNG Lewas’ second shot at a world cup spot and a One Day International status, which will be valid for the next four years.

Anticipating their biggest opposition to come from South Africa, these 14 women, have been working hard in the last three months to improve their endurance level as well as conditioning.

Mackindoe has been working closely with the team and is confident of their ability to bring home good results.

With their ever improving match results and with more of them making up the East Asia Pacific Team that takes on Australia Country Cricket Championship in the last few years, Mackindoe hopes the Lewas have Papua New Guinea’s support.

She reiterated that the top three teams from this world cup qualifier will go on to the Super Six Series where they will compete for the final leg.

The top three in the Super Six Series will then appear for the World Cup, come June. And for the Lewas, the stakes are high and so is their drive to get there.
