Thumbs up for cricket

Maciu Malo

THE Ra Provincial administrator, Kelepi Kubunameca, and Ra paramount chief, the Tu Na Viti Levu Ratu Meli Bolobolo are backing an idea to introduce cricket to the youths of Ra.

The idea was presented to them this week by former national rep Reverand Seremaia Misikivosa, who is also a board member for Fiji Cricket Association. Kubunameca said the sport had been offered as an option besides rugby, soccer and other sports played by youths in the province.

"We are now preparing for a launch early next month when Fiji Cricket is expected to run a clinic here in Rakiraki," he said.

"This has the backing of the vanua and the provincial council, not everyone can play rugby or soccer, so cricket can be an option for our youths."

Kubunameca said with the Fiji Cricket backing, who knows what the future may hold.
