Cricket loses former Fiji rep

Maciu Malo
Saturday, February 01, 2014

CRICKET Fiji has lost a true son and a former national rep in 85-year-old Ratu Nemani Kavuru.

The Lomanikoro, Bau native died after a short illness at Lautoka Hospital on Tuesday and will be buried on the chiefly island of Bau this morning.

Ratu Nemani was a member of the team that toured New Zealand in 1954 alongside the late Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara.

Cricket Fiji general manager Inoke Lesuma said the former national rep would be sorely missed.

"He was a member of the Fiji cricket team that toured New Zealand in 1954 and made his debut for Fiji in his first class match against Wellington.

"In that three-day match, Kavuru scored a total of 41 runs at a batting average of 13.66, with a high score of 32."

He is survived by his five children, 16 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
