Vanuatu

Vanuatu league brought forward

ESPNcricinfo staff

The cricket season’s starting early in Vanuatu because of the national side’s commitments in the World Cricket League in Jersey in May. It’s been brought forward six weeks to give players the chance to impress. Port Vila’s premier cricket competition, the BDO Club Championship, will begin February 8 with eight teams taking part this year.

Defending the BDO title will be the APT Dolphins, who won ten straight games last season to win the 2007 Championship. And a Vanuatu spokesperson has a message that the bigger international sides could learn from: “Rivalry remains intense, but never bitter, while umpiring decisions should always be laughed off at the pub.”
