Historical Notes: Under German administration, the law restricted cricket games to two days per week. Prior to this, matches could last for weeks, disrupting the regular work patterns which the Germans wanted to encourage. During the New Zealand administration, cricket again became a regular part of village life. Samoan cricket consists of two sides of equal but unrestricted numbers, usually from two villages or village sections. Traditionally, matches were accompanied by ceremonies, feasting, and dancing."
