THE Fiji National Sports Commission compensated Cricket Fiji for hosting the inaugural Pasifika U17 series in June.

Yesterday, Commission chairman Peter Mazey handed over a cheque of $30,000 to Cricket Fiji general manager Inoke Lesuma.

Mazey said the sport had once again grown in Fiji and could once emulate its glory days status.

"Even though we didn't win the event but we hosted it and other countries were here and our people got to enjoy the tournament," he said.

"This is the directions that we want sports to go in and it's all about developing our young players."

Lesuma thanked the Commission for its support and said there would be more progress in the coming months.

"We will again be hosting the tournament next year and this time seven teams would compete," he said.

Mazey added it was good news that national cricket coach Shane Jurgensen officially received his work permit.
