CRICKET Fiji Junior High Performance squad members Saimoni Tuitoga and Metuisela Beitaki departed for Wellington yesterday.

The two have been invited to take part in the New Zealand under-17 National Championships.

The boys will compete as members of the Wellington Invitational XI side, in observational, training and playing roles.

The tournament, which runs until January 22, will consist of three two-day matches and two one-day matches.

Cricket Fiji's High Performance manager Joe Rika said it would be a fantastic exposure for the boys.

"Not just because the tournament will comprise of the best under-age players New Zealand has to offer, but they will also gain experience playing on a turf wicket," he said.

Tuitoga, 16, and Beitaki, 17, are students of John Wesley College and were also members of the Fiji under-19 side which competed for the International Cricket Council's East-Asia Pacific U19 Trophy in Queensland, Australia, last year.
