There's a feast of cricket this week across the North West as eight countries battle it out for the World Cup crown.

Australia, West Indies, Ireland, England, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, New Zealand and India will play each other, with eight matches a day in four venues.

Bready, Newbuildings, Foyle College and Glendermott will host the matches which take place each day at 10am and 1.30pm.

The countries are actually the under 13 sides of eight NW teams who have adopted the various countries for the week.

Donemana are Australia, Newbuildings/England, Eglinton/New Zealand, Bonds Glen/Sri Lanka, NW Girls/Zimbabwe, Bready/West Indies, Ardmore/India, and St Johnston are Ireland.

The tournament is the brainchild of the North West Development team and all the sides will play in special shirts of the various countries.

It sounds like a great idea and hopefully the improved weather forecast will see the 40 games take place, culminating in the World Cup final on Friday!
