Cricket U17 trials

CRICKET Fiji will hold trials at the end of this month to finalise their squad for the inaugural Pasifika under-17 Tri-Series that will be held in Suva next month.

The tournament is the first of its kind and will have U17 representative sides from Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga play each other in a series of round-robin Twenty20 matches from June 23 to 27.

The top two sides at the end of the week will battle for the Pasifika title.

Cricket Fiji high performance manager Joe Rika said selection would be easy because they already had a pool of experienced players.

"We had a junior performance program in 2012 and the players from there are still part of the program so selection will not be a problem for us," he said.

"Nearly all of the players in the squad had played the entire Suva Cricket league competition last season while three of them are already part of the national men's senior squad."

Rika said the final trials would be held on May 31 at Buckhurst Park.

Tonga is expected to bring their national under-19 side to play against Cricket Fiji's High Performance Unit U19 side in a series of 50 and 20-over tour matches right after the Pasifika Series.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Youth and Sports Commander Viliame Naupoto launched the new Kids Cricket Program for primary schools last week.

The program is a joint initiative between Cricket Fiji and the Fiji National Sports Commission and aims to take cricket to a wider range of primary school-aged students.
