THE national cricket side would need to play more warm-up games to fully get used to playing 50 over games in one day.
Fiji is preparing for the ICC World Cricket League Division 7 Tournament that will be held in Botswana from April 4 to 14.
Yesterday, the side played against the Suva Warriors side at Albert Park in Suva and team manager Isireli Temo Vetokiyaki said the match was satisfactory.
He said they had three more friendly matches to play before they depart our shores on March 28.
"It is very important to play warm-up games because it gets the team into the rhythm of playing," Vetokiyaki said.
"We have been training all this time now and so playing warm-up games would help us identify our weaknesses," he said.
He added the players still have not adjusted to playing 50 over games because the last tournament the national side played in was the ICC East Asia Pacific Men's Championship in New Zealand last month which was a Twenty 20 competition.
"There is a big difference in playing Twenty 20 and 50 over games in one day.
"That is why we are putting these boys through gruelling 50 over matches with the Suva Warriors side.
"We have three more matches to play and the boys should get used to playing 50 over matches as well as playing in the heat because Botswana is in Africa and its hot there, similar to Fiji," Vetokiyaki said.
