Vanuatu T10 Blast

Vanuatu Cricket wins ICC Digital Fan Engagement Initiative Award 2020

Jamal Vira was feeling a mix of nerves and excitement in his first outing in the Vanuatu T10 Blast. The Vanuatu Cricket Association (VCA) had ambitious plans to broadcast and livestream the tournament, and the men’s team wicket-keeper, who turned out for Ifira Sharks in the debut edition of the T10 competition, knew thousands of cricket fans around the world were watching him play in the beautiful Pacific islands. But he wasn’t used to playing to an audience on TV and online, nor were his teammates, and the Sharks were bowled out for 35 in 7.1 overs in Port Vila.
