According to the statement put out by Vanuatu Cricket Association earlier this month; “This series will provide great exposure for the girls and women’s cricket in Vanuatu as a whole. We cannot wait to see them in action.”

27 players from the national pool, along with the 25 invited players from 6 countries namely Australia, Vanuatu, Singapore, Myanmar, Indonesia and Thailand, have been distributed among the four teams – Southern Jaguars, Northern Queens, Eastern Lioness and Central Super Girls.

Six Young Thai Players from Thailand are also taking part in this tournament.
