EAP beat Western Australia


The International Cricket Council (ICC) East-Asia-Pacific (EAP) women’s team bounced back to record their first win in the Australian Country Cricket Championships (ACCC) fixture against Western Australia Country in Shepparton, Victoria, last Sunday.
After losing to South Australia the previous day, the EAP side batted first and posted 104/7 off their allotted 20 overs thanks largely to a 73 run-opening partnership between PNG player Brenda Tau (36) and Vanuatu’s Valenta Langiatu (28). In a much-improved bowling performance, the EAP 11 were able to restrict Western Australia to only 80/9. PNG Lewas off-spinner Vicky Ara’a (3-14) was a standout picking up three wickets, while fellow Lewas players Kaia Arua (1-13), Veru Kila Frank (1-13), Sibona Jimmy (1-13) and Mairi Tom (1-16) all picked up a wicket apiece.
This is the third time that the ICC EAP side has competed in the famous ACCC. In 2017, the EAP side won the inaugural title.
