To celebrate the PNG Barramundis historic participation at the World Cup, Cricket PNG – with the support of the PNG Australia Partnership – hosted the Village Cricket World Cup 2021 Series at Amini Park. The Village World Cup brought teams from the villages, men, women, and youth players together to celebrate this historic achievement with their own unique style of cricket. The teams embraced the colours of their adopted countries and at the same time would always back the Barras!
