Australia and Tasmania cricketer, Xavier Doherty, was on hand to talk about the importance of volunteers in cricket.

“Volunteers play an important role in Australia cricket and are vital to the successful running of most clubs – we cannot thank them enough.”

With the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy on display at the event, Doherty spoke about the opportunity for Tasmanians to get involved in 2015.

“Tasmanians now have a once in a generation opportunity to join these sporting volunteer champions, with three ICC Cricket World Cup matches to be held at Bellerive Oval in March 2015.

“With Tasmania playing host to Australia, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Sri Lanka and Scotland during the tournament it will be a volunteering opportunity not to be missed.”

There are a variety of volunteer roles available, each requiring different skills and experience, and those interested should visit www.cricketworldcup.com/volunteers for further information.
