Muralitharan is a cricketing coup for PNG

CRICKET PNG has pulled off a coup after confirming that Sri Lankan super star Muttiah Muralitharan will play in the annual Twenty20 Legends Bash in December.

Murali will be part of a group of eight personalities who have agreed to help promote Cricket PNG's annual "Don't Drink and Drive" awareness campaign which is tied into cricket clinics and matches.

The other stars due to appear are PNG's national coaching director Andy Bichel along with fellow former Australian international players Brad Hogg, Michael Di Venuto, Craig McDermott, Greg Ritchie and Steve Rixon, and former England one-day captain, Adam Hollioake.

Meanwhile, a delegation from PNG has been on a fact finding mission to Melbourne ahead of the 2015 Pacific Games.

As the host country, PNG is anxious to provide the best venues and the delegation took the opportunity to attend a three-day workshop on the management of sports facilities at Melbourne's aquatic centre, which was upgraded for the Commonwealth Games in 2006.

The PNG delegation included government advisor on sport, Steven Damien, legal advisor to the Pacific Games venues committee, Michael Henao, and Mel Donald from the PNG Sports Federation.
