CRICKET Fiji will be hosting the inaugural Pasifika under-17 Tri-Series in Suva next month.
The U17 teams from Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga will play each in the series of round robin Twenty20 matches which will be held from June 23 to 27 at Buckhurst Park.
The top two teams after the round-robin matches will then play for the Pasifika title.
"With no regional U17 championships being help in 2014, the participating nations expressed interest in holding their own international tournament, to ensure the continual development of elite young cricketers through gaining vital competition experience," a statement from Cricket Fiji said.
Meanwhile Tonga will also bring their U19 side to play against Cricket Fiji's High Performance Unit U19 team in a series of 50-over and 20-over tour matches.
