Teams vie for top honours in Apia Men's League cricket
The Apia Men's League [A.M.L.] cricket tournament is 10 weeks away from the final with 16 teams vying for top honours in a round robin format.
All matches are being held at the Tuanaimato cricket ground with the organisers branding the tournament their biggest for the year due to the number of teams registering.
Samoa Cricket is using their tournaments to select players for the Samoa national men's team as well as their U-19 who will compete in the International Cricket Council [I.C.C.] and East Asia Pacific [E.A.P.] competition scheduled for this year.
Despite the COVID-19 global pandemic, Samoa Cricket is keen to progress their plans to run domestic competitions with a focus on identifying potential players to become representative players.
Their highlight for the A.M.L. is the participation of new teams such as Solosolo and two teams from Falelauniu.
Fetu i Sasae from Fusi Safata is still the defending champion of the cricket shield despite other teams challenging the shield holder who still were able to defend their title.
Samoa Cricket said it acknowledges the support of their sponsors, the general manager, management and staff members of the Special Occasion Supplies for supporting their cause.
