Congratulations to the PNG Barramundis who have qualified to represent PNG in the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
CIG, as a key sponsor and community partner to Cricket PNG, were invited to watch a cricket match played by the LEWAS and the Barramundis. The matches were a part of the farewell ceremony for the PNG Barramundis, who will be leaving our shores for Oman and the United Arab Emirates to represent PNG in the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 Word Cup. The day ended with the official naming of the 16 men squad and also the issuing of their jerseys. CIG setup their marquee and cheered on to show support for the PNG Barramundis. The 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to take part on the 7th of this tournament. This is the first time for the PNG Barramundis to qualify for a world cup in any format. The Barramundis were also the first team to secure their position as a qualifier for this tournament and will also take on Oman for the opening match of the tournament on the 17th of October. We wish them the very best!
