International cricket in Townsville next weekend

Townsville will host its first full One Day International matches on November 8 and 9 when Papua New Guinea play Hong Kong at Tony Ireland Stadium in the Digicel ODI Series. These teams are fierce rivals having played each other many times in ICC Associate matches and tournaments.

Both teams were given ODI status by the ICC after finishing fifth and sixth at the World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand this year. Tony Ireland Stadium is also debuting as a full international venue after receiving ICC accreditation in October.
