CRICKET Fiji has named 26 players in their senior men's high performance squad in preparation for this year's East Asia Pacific Twenty 20 tournament.

Nine of the players are overseas-based and the local players are required to attend a fitness test at Albert Park on Friday.

High performance manager Joe Rika said the overseas players who had been named would be contacted with reference to their fitness tests and performance statistics.

"Selection of the squad was based on current performance in the local leagues as well as with the intention to develop players by the likes of Saimoni Tuitoga, Masi Elder, Sagaitu Konusi and Laisa Koroi who for the first time make it into the senior men's training squad," he said.

Rika added the squad will be amended following the completion of the local club competition depending on performance.

"This doesn't limit us from getting other players, meaning selection into the national team is still open."

Squad: Colin Rika, Vuli Turganikoro, Greg Browne, Saimoni Tuitoga, Cakacaka Veretaki, Iliesa Navatu, Laisa Koroi, Kitione Tavo, Sagaitu Konusi, Sakaraia Lomani, Giles Smith, Masi Elder, Metuisela Beitaki, Noa Acawei, Jack Smith, Sakiusa Dokosobau, Rukesh Patel.

Overseas-based: Kunaal Kumar, Viliame Yabaki, Sekove Ravoka, Simon Jepsen, Rabici Lesuma, Maciu Gauna, Imran Khan, Jikoi Kida, Tukana Tavo.
