Australia Navy take on Samoans in Twenty20
Every few months Australian Navy ships dock in the Apia Harbour for a few days rest from sea. This time they headed to the Garden Cricket Ovals in Faleata to challenge a team of Samoans in a Twenty20.
The game wasn't too close - the home side’s batting attack proved far too good for the Australians, surpassing the target of 64 runs in the 9th over.
This is the first time the Samoa International Cricket Association (SICA) has hosted a cricket match against the Australian Navy. After the success both on and off the field, SICA look forward to hosting many more of these friendly matches in the future.
