Cricket PNG have announced the squads for the upcoming T20 Tri-series featuring Papua New Guinea, Cricket PNG Academy XI and Hong Kong and the following 3-match 50-overs series against the visitors, to be played from Oct 01st – 12th, 2018.

Papua New Guinea national team members were recently in action in the ICC East Asia-Pacific group “A” qualifiers in Fiji, while Hong Kong are coming on the back of successful campaigns in ACC Asia Cup qualifiers and the main draw of Asia Cup. The T20 Tri-series provides Cricket PNG the perfect opportunity to try out the next line of youngsters to eventually claim places in the senior squad.

PNG toured Hong Kong in 2017 as part of the bi-lateral arrangement and this year, it’s Hong Kong’s turn for the return tour. All matches will be played at Amini Park ground in Port Moresby.
