Papua New Guinea’s top cricketers are already turning their focus to a possible World Cup debut in India.
This year’s Men’s T20 World Cup has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The PNG Barramundis had been set to make their senior World Cup debut in Australia but coach Joe Dawes said the team has taken the news in their stride.
“It’s been probably one of the worst kept secrets for quite a while now. Although disappointing it’s totally understandable in the state of the world at the moment.”
“For us to play in November, we would love to have represented at that World Cup but our preparation would have been really poor so getting that extra time now will really allow us to make sure we get some cricket in next year, if Covid plays the game at some point, and we’ll look forward to getting stuck into it.”
