Development on track

INOKE Lesuma, the general manager of Cricket Fiji says the country is on track with development of the sport.

Lesuma who attended the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Global Conference in Melbourne, Australia last week said he was pleased with Fiji's progress compared to other ICC affiliated countries.

About 105 countries that are affiliated to the ICC attended the conference.

With Fiji being one of the longest-serving affiliate members of the ICC, Lesuma said Fiji needed to concentrate on the future.

"It's interesting to note Fiji's progress over the years, compared to that of newer cricketing nations," he said.

"Of course there is always room for improvement but I was please to see that in many areas we are on par or better than other nations at our level."

Inoke attended a discussion panel related to governance, specifically the relationship between an organisation's chief executive, its board member, media relations and making the most of social media.

Lesuma also visited former Cricket Fiji representative Neil Maxwell who is associated with the Sydney Cricket Club, to discuss potential future partnership opportunities with Cricket Fiji, as well as toured clubs in Darwin interested in hosting Fijian players on player placements next season.

He added the focus would now turn to the continual progression of the senior men's side as the squad takes on Korea this week in preparation for their Tour of India and the World Cricket League qualifiers in October and November.

Meanwhile, the visiting Korean national side has recorded mixed results losing to the Junior High Performance team before beating the Fiji A side on Sunday.
