Thoughts: My family have always been engaged with cricket in PNG.
But it wasn’t until we moved to Melbourne, Australia, were I started playing and became serious about the sport.
With both my older brothers also representing the country in cricket, I had to create my own name and path, and that has led me to this point.
Years later, I am now the vice-captain of the team, and it is an honour.
