Lewas skipper wins CPL award for role


PAPUA New Guinea Lewas captain Kaia Arua won the 2019 City Pharmacy Limited medal for the best player in women’s cricket.
The 28-year-old left-arm bowler was awarded the medal after edging out Lewas teammates Ravini Oa and Brenda Tau.
A gracious Arua, in her acknowledgement, thanked her teammates and the coaching staff for their confidence in her role in the women’s national team.
She is taking a lead role in the Yahama Cassowaries at the women’s T20 Smash cricket tournament in Port Moresby.
The tournament started last week and is in its second week.
The semifinals and finals are scheduled for this weekend at the Amini Park.
The T20 Smash will also provide sufficient match practice for the Lewas who leave for Scotland.
Arua and Oa will head the Lewas’ campaign at the T20 World Cup qualifier in Scotland later this month.
