Sport: Vanuatu heads to final and Fiji places for 3/4 at Cricket League

1:08 pm on 13 April 2013

At the Cricket League 7 tournament in Botswana, the Fiji cricketers lost by 22 runs to hosts Botswana last night.

But the Fijians will get a second to chance to challenge the hosts when they meet for the 3rd place play-off - due mainly to Nigeria's win over Germany.

The Fijians team needed Nigeria to beat Germany to secure a play-off spot as Fiji had a superior run rate compared to Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Vanuatu beat Ghana by eight wickets last night.

The Melanesians had already secured a spot in the final but the win last night means they finished the group phase unbeaten.

They will meet Nigeria at Gaborone.
