Hebou PNG Garamuts

Garamuts’ world cup run ends

Both teams were winless going into their last match in New Zealand.

The two lowly ranked teams of World Cricket did not disappoint in that regard as they played out a nail biter, Kenya winning by 14 runs.

Kenya won the toss and immediately elected to bat. A decision that looked to prove costly facing James Tau who is in great form with his bowling for the Garamuts.

Kenya put on 60 runs as Tau tried every bowling combination possible to get them out, but to no avail.

PNG Garamuts lose to Ireland

Some gutsy bowling from PNG’s James Tau was not enough to get the Garamuts a win, as they lost to Ireland by 3 wickets at the Under 19 Cricket World Cup.

They sure made hard work of it, but Ireland were ultimately successful in chasing PNG's modest total of 121.

Neil Rock top-scored with 43 and it was his 45-run partnership with Graham Kennedy (17*) that steadied the ship and saw Ireland home.

James Tau took 4/45 for PNG off his 10 overs and Sema Kamea chipped in with 2/22 off his full complement.

Garamuts defeated by Canada

Winning the toss, captain Vagi Karaho sent the Canadians in to bat first at Lincoln.

Akash Gill was the star with the bat, hitting 12 fours and two sixes for his 120 before finally being bowled out by Daure Aiga.

For the Garamuts, James Tau (2/37) and Leke Morea (2/69) picked up two wickets each.

Canada finished at 8/265.

In their pursuit of the target, a knock of 81 runs from opener Simon Atai was not enough as the Garamuts crumbled to be all out for 185 in 44 overs.

Garamuts thumped in world cup opener

After a rain delayed start, Zimbabwe won the toss electing to field first at Lincoln No.3, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Garamuts openers, Simon Atai (14) and Igo Mahuru (26), steadied along to put on 41 runs for the first wicket.

The Garamuts were dealt another blow losing captain Vagi Karaho who managed one run before being given out leg before wicket off the bowling of Wesley Madhevere.

Ovia Sam (24*) and Sinaka Arua (18) tried to get things going again.

Garamuts beat Fiji by four wickets

The Fijians batted first and after 19.2 overs were reeling at 5-42. Wickets continued to fall and they found themselves all out for 88 inside 36 overs.

Jack Fraser Charters (16) and Samuel Nakuna (16) top scored with the bat. With the ball for Garamuts, it was Boge Daniel Arua (4/21) who did the damage.

Despite their losing their openers cheaply, Heagi Ronald Toua (27), Vagi Karaho (15) and Nou Reva Rarua (14*) guided the Garamuts home to reach the target in 25.2 overs losing six wickets along the way.

PNG will take on hosts Samoa tomorrow.
