An Ocean of Cricket

Pictures from the Pacific

Barrie Cassidy, Adam Cassidy
The joy of cricket, island-style!
Cricket in the South Pacific is a joyous affair, played among thatched huts, on main roads and beside some stunning beaches. An Ocean of Cricket celebrates the healthy competition and community spirit that cricket inspires in the villages of Vanuatu, the isolated Lau Islands of Fiji, and off the coast of Papua New Guinea. In these exotic environments, the game is a magical mix of the traditional and the tribal.
An Ocean of Cricket meets with the cricket enthusiasts and discovers why they do so well in national competitions. It captures in words and stunning photographs the special customs and the extraordinary passion that the islanders have for the game. Join Adam and Barrie Cassidy for a magnificent photographic tour of the grass-roots tournaments, the roadside rubbers and the beachfront battles of cricket, island-style!
