Papua New Guinea recently finished third in the 2009 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup Qualifier which was held in Canada. The team gained victories over the Under-19 teams of Hong Kong, Canada, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Vanuatu, the United States and the Netherlands. The team lost only two matches to Ireland and Afghanistan. Papua New Guinea's performance in this tournament gained them qualification for the 2010 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

At the 2020 Under-19 Cricket World Cup qualification EAP event, Papua New Guinea were undefeated going into the final game against Japan (also undefeated). However, they forfeited the match after Cricket PNG suspended eleven members of the squad due to breaching the team's code of conduct.[1] The Papua New Guinea Cricket Board later suspended ten of the players for a year, after bringing the game into disrepute following a shop-lifting incident.[2][3]
