CRICKET Fiji is calling on interested players wishing to play for the national under-17 team in the inaugural U17 Pasifika Tri-Series to attend the trials to be held next month.

The Tri-Series, which will feature Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga, will be played on round-robin basis in Twenty20 format from June 23 to 27 at Buckhurst Park in Suva.

Cricket Fiji in a statement said "with the competition against Vanuatu and Tonga to be held in Suva, Cricket Fiji is keen to have as many people involved as possible.

"Therefore, all will be welcome for the open trial but if you intend to trial please let Joe Rika know before Friday, June 6."

The aim of the tournament is to help participating nations with the development of elite young cricketers through gaining vital competition experience.

Players eligible to trial must be born in 1997 or after. The venue for the trial is yet to be confirmed.
