A BLEND of local and overseas- based players have been named in the national men's cricket team to represent Fiji at the International Cricket Council's East-Asia Pacific region's regional qualifiers.

However, these will feature in both the 2016 Twenty20 World Cup Qualifiers and the re-entry into the World Cricket League.

The announcement was made at the Fiji National Sports Commision boardroom yesterday.

Twenty four players were named with 18 locals and six playing overseas.

Cricket Fiji board member Inoke Lesuma said these players had been selected based on merit and they were the best to represent the country in the international arena.

He added that of all the players based in Fiji from this squad, 14 plus four non-travelling reserves would be selected. Up to 18 players from this squad will also be selected for the senior men's tour of India in October.

The selected players will now commence an intensive 12-week program, starting with strengthening and fitness test with Henry Elder at the FMF Gymnasium this coming Saturday.

The East-Asia Pacific region's regional qualifiers will be held in Lismore, Australia in November.

Team Fiji: Josefa Rika, Giles Smith, Makutu Seru, Metuisela Beitaki, Sekove Ravoka, Saimoni Tuitoga, Viliame Yabaki, Manase Ravula, Jikoi Kida, Vanualevu, Riyad Khan, Jack Smith, Sowane Puamau, Viliame Mana, Sakiusa Dokosobau, Josaia Baleicikoibia, Tagilala Rakuita, Tukana Tavo, Josefa Gauna, Imran Khan, Kunaal Kumar, Simon Jepsen, Maciu Gauna, Rabici Lesuma, Tawsheed Taweed.
