AUSTRALIA-based player Rabici Lesuma has been named in the Fiji Board XI side that will take on Korea this afternoon.
The side lost by five runs to Korea on Tuesday and the inclusion of Lesuma might spark the side to a better performance today at the Laucala cricket ground in Suva.
A statement from Cricket Fiji said Lesuma wanted to show national head coach Shane Jurgensen what he had to offer the national side.
"Captained by Colin Rika, the side will have an interesting inclusion in the form of Rabici Lesuma, a Sydney-based member of the Fiji national men's squad, who has flown in for three matches to show the new coach what he has to offer ahead of team selection for the World Cricket League qualifiers which will be held in Lismore, Australia, in November this year," the statement read.
"The Fiji Board XI will face the Korean national men's team tomorrow afternoon at 1pm, following the morning fixture where Korea will once again take on Cricket Fiji's junior high performance team."
Fiji Board XI: Rabici Lesuma, Makutu Seru, Colin Rika (C), Giles Smith, Talwinder Singh, Viliame Yabaki, Jiko Kida, Greg Browne, Tagilala Rakuita, Viliame Mana, Riyad Khan, Josefa Gauna.
