Martin Williamson

The Vanuatu Cricket Association has announced it will stage a new top-tier league starting on November 14.

The President's Summer League, which will have limited-over and Twenty20 format competitions, will consist of four teams (Kingfishers, Hawks, Monarchs and Falcons) with the country’s players evenly spread between them.

This will be the first time that cricket has been played over the summer break in Vanuatu.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
