Ipi Morea (born 6 May 1975) is a Papua New Guinean cricketer.[1] A right-handed batsman and wicket-keeper,[2] he played for the Papua New Guinea national cricket team between 1996 and 2005.[3]

Biography[edit]

Born in Port Moresby in 1975,[2] Ipi Morea first played for Papua New Guinea in the 1996 ACC Trophy in Malaysia.[3] This was followed the next year by an appearance in the 1997 ICC Trophy, also in Malaysia[4] and a second ACC Trophy, in Nepal, in 1998.[3]

After this start it would be nearly four years before he next played for Papua New Guinea, returning for the 2002 Pacifica Cup in Apia.[3] The following year he represented Papua New Guinea at the 2003 South Pacific Games, winning a gold medal in the cricket tournament.[5] In 2004 and 2005, he played for a combined East Asia Pacific team in the Australian National Country Cricket Championship.[3]

Also in 2005, he played in the repêchage tournament of the 2005 ICC Trophy.[3] Papua New Guinea won the tournament after beating Fiji in the final.[6] This qualified them for the 2005 ICC Trophy in Ireland in which Morea played, making his List A debut.[7]

He has not played for Papua New Guinea since 2005[2] but has continued to play for the combined East Asia Pacific Team in the Australian National Country Cricket Championships in 2006, 2007 and 2008.[3] He was named fielder of the tournament in 2006.[8]
