Fiji trio makes the cut

THREE Fijians have been named in the East-Asia Pacific (EAP) team that will play in the Rising Stars Quad Series to be held in Darwin, Australia next month.

Makutu Seru, Tukana Tavo and Viliame Mana will join players from Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Japan in the EAP team.

EAP will compete against teams representing PNG, the Australian Indigenous XI and the Northern Territory Strikers in a series of matches to be held between September 14 and 19.

Cricket Fiji marketing and communication officer Laura Macintosh said the trio were looking forward to the experience.

"For Makutu, Tukana and Viliame all who are members of Fiji's senior men's national squad, this will be a unique experience for them to hone their skills on a turf wicket, ahead of the senior men's tour to India followed by the International Cricket Council's EAP Twenty20 World Cup and World Cricket League qualifiers later in 2014," said Macintosh in a statement.

"Aside from the three Fijians, there are five players from Vanuatu, five from PNG, and one Japanese player in the team, which will be coached by PNG's John Ovia."
