VANUATU LEADING THE DEVELOPMENT OF CRICKET IN THE PACIFIC

The continuing growth of cricket in the Pacific is reflected in the latest statistics from the International Cricket Council, which reveal a 7.5 per cent participation rate in Vanuatu (which represent 19,000 people), and even higher rates in Cook Islands and Samoa.

Papua New Guinea remains the dominant force in the region in terms of sheer numbers, although in percentage terms the participation rate in PNG is only around 2.3, while in Fiji, a country with high cricketing ambitions, the figure is about 2.5 per cent.

But much of the inspiration for cricket's development is coming from Vanuatu, and the President of the Vanuatu Cricket Association, Mark Stafford, says its programmes have been widely adopted around the region.

Congratulation to the president, to Mr. Pierre Chilia and the VCA team that includes employees; teacher ambassadors; and all the other volunteers of VCA.
