International Cricket Heads To The Island Of Vis

 

Cricket sides from the UK will battle it out against local Croatian sides when the 2nd Vis International Sixes (VIS) cricket tournament gets underway this week on the idyllic Croatian island of Vis.

Four British teams will fly over and join Croatian teams from Zagreb, Dubrovnik and the host’s Vis in the 3-day six-a-side tournament which will be held from 3-5 May at one of the only cricket grounds in the world surrounded by a vineyard.

The six-a-side, 5 over per team concept has been made popular by the ICC sanctioned annual Hong Kong Sixes tournament.
