Brian Bell Village World Cup Female Under 15 Series

Oro picks top female team

Students from the primary schools of Igora, Resurrection, Hohorita, Popondetta and Popondetta Secondary School enjoyed the day representing Australia, Bangladesh, West Indies, England, India and New Zealand.

Music could be heard around the whole town as the girls took to the pitch in high spirits.

Those who did not make the finals took shelter from the hot sun and cheered on the New Zealand and England teams. 

In what is always a chilling moment for any New Zealand cricket fan, the final ended in a tie and went to another super over. 

Female U15 Series Ends On High

Six teams representing England, West Indies, Australia, Pakistan, India and New Zealand competed.

The beautiful ground in Ahioma, with the sea to one side and the mountains on the other, came alive with laughter and cheering.

A modified format with eight players per side in a 6-over game allowed greater participation and enjoyment from those experienced at cricket to those playing for the first time.
