FORMER Flying Fijian Saiasi Fuli has been appointed as the new development manager for Cricket Fiji.

Having previously worked with the Ministry of Youth and Sports in the Policy Unit — Sports Development and with the Ministry of Finance, serving as a civil servant for a total of 12 years.

Fuli brings with him in-depth knowledge of sport and finance administration.

He said he was looking forward to the new role and its challenges.

"I believe if we work together we can be able to lift the standards of cricket in the country," Fuli said.

"We need to work on getting cricket to be on par with the other major sports like rugby, netball and soccer."

Cricket Fiji General Manager Inoke Lesuma said Fuli would prove to be an asset to the company in terms of developing the sport around the country.

"We are glad to have him on board and know that through his experiences positive changes will be implemented for the benefit of the sport," he said.
