PAPUA New Guinea cricket has lost one of its legends and ambassador who passed away two days ago.
The Late Toua Vai was a long-time president and administrator of the United Cricket Club and the Poreporena Cricket Club in the Port Moresby Cricket Association.
He was also the former team manager of the PNG senior men’s cricket team to the Pacific Cup in Auckland in 2001 and the South Pacific Games in Fiji in 2003.
Toua was one of the main people who rejuvenated cricket in Hanuabada village which has now been tagged as the biggest cricket village in PNG.
He was also behind the formation of the United and Poreporena Cricket Clubs which have risen to be the two biggest clubs in PNG.
In a sign of respect for the Late Toua Vai, Cricket PNG is kindly requesting all teams to wear a black armband during the games this weekend.
