AS we pass through the streets of the Motuan fishing villages of Hanuabada and Elavala – surrounded by the urban spread of Port Moresby - there are chants of celebration.
Eager youngsters are at play in the hot blazing sun determined to showcase their amazing natural talent for cricket.
Cricket has huge support in these villages and has over the years produced men and women international cricketers like Rarua Dikana, Mahuru Dai, Lega Siaka and Tanya Ruma.
