Following the huge success of the early stages of the North Western Hemisphere Test Championship, I’m delighted to announce our participation in another new cricket competition, the Global ODI Invitational. As well as ourselves the following national cricket teams will be competing in this exciting new 50 over tournament.
Papua New Guinea
United States of America
The competition will compromise two round robins, that’s fourteen matches each, seven on home shores and as many in far flung corners of the globe. There will then follow semi-finals and a final.
The first half of the league stage will be played at the halfway stage of the NWHTC. We’ll then return to the longer format before switching once again to the shorter format in what will be an exciting build up to the finals of each new tournament. We hope to feature in both.
I know that the team are extremely excited at the prospect of wearing our new kit!
For now though it’s back to whites as we aim for a fourth straight North Western Hemisphere Test Championship win, this time in the Netherlands. Our squad for that match will be announced shortly. Our squad for our opening Global ODI Invitational match will be named after the our Dutch exam.
