NATIONAL cricket coach Joeli Mateyawa is hoping to put his team in a game situation to see what they have learnt in the past three weeks.
The national side has been training for a few weeks and moved into camp on Sunday to prepare for the East Asia Pacific T20 World Cup qualifier that will be held in New Zealand next month.
Mateyawa said he had been working on fitness in those weeks and was now going to turn his focus on skills.
He said the warm-up match would really get the players into game mode ahead of the actual competition.
"We have already taken care of the fitness of the players before moving into camp," Mateyawa said.
"Now that we are in camp, we will work on the game skills before we depart at the end of the month," he said.
"These skills include bowling, batting and fielding and are very important parts of our preparation."
Mateyawa said they were negotiating for a match with a team from the Suva Cricket Association side.
The side will play two warm-up matches in Auckland before the real competition.
