Mateyawa says they’re up against more experienced teams and they have to get things right.

“The game depends on skills. If you do the right thing and you feel confident of doing the skills right, it doesn’t matter how long they’ve been playing, if you know the skills very well, you can counter them.”

Fiji’s first game is against Papua New Guinea tomorrow at 9.30am.

The Pacific Cup is a T20 International tournament that will run from tomorrow until Thursday seeing Fiji, PNG, Vanuatu and Samoa battle for the top finish

The team that finishes on top of the ladder will be crowned the champion.
