The Vanuatu cricket team is the team that represents the country of Vanuatu in international cricket matches. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council in 1995 and were subsequently promoted to associate membership in 2009 [1].

In recognition of the growing interest in cricket in Vanuatu, multinational communications company Digicel announced they would be sponsoring the Vanuatu national team in its upcoming tournaments[2].

International Competition

Vanuatu competed in the Pacifica Championships on the two occasions it was held, finishing seventh in 2001 and sixth in 2002. In 2005, they hosted the East Asia/Pacific Cricket Cup, finishing third in the six team competition, therefore missing out on qualification for the 2007 World Cup. At the East Asia - Pacific Trophy in Auckland, New Zealand in December 2007, Vanuatu finished second, therefore qualifying through to the World Cricket League Division Five in 2008. In the highly successful 2009 calendar year, Vanuatu defeated Fiji in two One-Day Series in Port Vila as well as claiming the prestigious 2009 ICC EAP Men's Cricket Trophy (Non-World Cricket League) held in Samoa, defeating the hosts in the final. At a junior level, Vanuatu has finished second to Papua New Guinea in the following competitions: East Asia - Pacific Under 15 Super 8s, Melbourne, Australia, 2005; East Asia - Pacific Under 15 Super 8s, Apia, Samoa, 2007; East Asia - Pacific Under 19 World Cup Qualifying Tournament, Port Vila, Vanuatu, 2007.

Vanuatu finished third in the 2010 ICC World Cricket League Division Eight in Kuwait. This means they will stay in that league for the 2012 competition.
