Amini Park will be alive with the first Trukai VPL for 2022 kicking off. The six franchise teams, Fairprice Furniture Mambas, Panamex PNG, Gamoga Lawyers Spirit of Rigo, Northern Alexanders, Koita Warriors, Zara Wanderer’s will start playing from 9am, each hoping to win the Trukai VPL 2022 Cup and first prize of PGK 20,000.
The first T10 match will be Panamex PNG taking on Zara Wanderer’s at 9am. Over the day, all teams will play in their pools, hoping to take top position for the finals the following Sunday. The top placed team from each pool will automatically advance to the Semi-finals, while the lower teams will face immediate elimination in a Knockout Quarter-final.
Entry for fans will be free and for those that can’t make it in person you will be able to follow the live scoring through

The teams were set a month ago with each franchise competing for players, and now is the time to see how they perform on the big stage. Each game in the Trukai VPL matters, with no one wanting to finish the tournament early, going home without any prize money.
We want to also acknowledge all mothers on Sunday, and we hope to see many mothers come to Amini Park to celebrate Mother’s Day with us at the Trukai VPL. Our very own Kumul Petroleum PNG Lewa, Ravini Oa, will be having a particularly special Mother’s Day as she lines up with the Fairprice Furniture Mambas as the only women playing in the Trukai VPL. Ravini is a star for the Lewas, and she is breaking barriers playing in the Trukai VPL.
Cricket is the sport for everyone, and we welcome everyone to be part of the Trukai VPL this Sunday.
