Hebou Barramundis Information

The HEBOU PNG Barramundis is the official name given to the Papua New Guinea (PNG) senior mens cricket team, with over 100 players having played for the Barramundis since their first match in 1975.

After an Associate Member in 1979, Cricket PNG achieved their second biggest milestone on the cricketing world where they were grated One Day International (ODI) Status in March 2014, after the Barramundis finishing fourth (4th) at the ICC 50 over World Cup Qualifiers in New Zealand. This result meant that PNG climbed to an all-time high 16th in the world, becoming one of only 16 countries in the world to have ODI Status until 2017.

PNG also became only the twenty-third (23rd) country to be given ODI Status since ODI’s were first played in 1971. Since achieving ODI status, PNG has moved upto 15th in the world after defeating Hong Kong 2-0 in its first ODI Series in Townsville, Australia in November 2014.

As of December 2016, the Barramundis are ranked first in the ICC World Cricket League Championships (WCLC) and fourth in the ICC Intercontinental Cup (ICUP) after four rounds.
