52 boys from NCD, Central, Western Highlands, West New Britain, Lae and Milne Bay Provinces are currently in Port Moresby for a camp facilitated by Cricket PNG.
The National Talent Manager for Cricket PNG, Rodney Maha said the main purpose of the camp is to select players to be part of the Under 19 Garamuts Cricket Team.
“A few of the existing members from the previous under 19 are moving to the Barramundis.”
“The boys were divided into 4 groups to play each other before the final selection is done.”
“The selectors are meeting now to select the final 18 boys who will join the others who remain in the U19s side.”
Maha said that once the final train on squad is selected they will start training immediately starting next week at Amini Park.
He added that the final train on squad will be preparing for their high performance camp in Darwin, Australia.
Meanwhile, 43 girls took part in a similar camp last week for a spot on the squad for the Under 19 Siales Cricket Team.
18 girls will also be selected to be part of the final train on squad. Selection will be done at the same meeting where the selection is done for the Garamuts.
