Pinay cricket team’s December match vs. Indons threatened by air ticket woes

17 September 2019

Without air tickets, all the preparations will be for naught.

The Philippines’ first and only foreign-based women’s cricket team is scheduled to meet the Indonesian national women’s squadron in Dasmarinas City, Cavite in a qualifying match in late December for the Cricket World Cup.

But the first international game of the SCC Divas has more than worried the team than excited it, as the problem of financing their air tickets could sabotage their trip if they can’t find a kind-hearted sponsor.

Josie Arimas, founder and captain of the Divas, who were champions in the Cricket Hong Kong Women’s Development League for the past two seasons, said her team was invited by the Philippine Cricket Association to play in the T20 tournament at home.

Arimas said the PCA manager has pledged to shoulder the Divas players’ accommodation and food while they are in Dasmariñas.


“Na-rattle ako, baka di ko makumpleto ang ticket namin, ang iba meron na,” Arimas said.
To try crowd-funding, she is planning to post on Facebook an appeal for donations in order to be able to collect enough funds for the team’s air fare to Manila.

She said she can’t hazard going to the   match with just the players who already have tickets because it’s the strong cricketers in her team who happen to have no tickets.

“Need ko kasi ang mga strong players. Kung lawlaw wala din, di ba? Kung maiwan ang mga strong batter ay wala kaming ilalaban. Apat lang kasing taga-Manila ang medyo okay maglaro,” Arimas said.

Divas players, who are mainly recruits from the OFW baseball, softball and volleyball teams in Hong Kong, mostly come from the Visayas and Northern Luzon provinces.
