Coach Joeli Mateyawa says the next few days will be crucial for the side as they try and make it to the semi-final spot.

“We are on one win, one loss. And we are going to play against Samoa tomorrow and the next will be against Vanuatu so from this two we have to do better so we can do our ranking, Vanuatu and Samoa.”

Mateyawa says there are still a few areas to improve on.

“Our boys doing well in the morning and we lost two players yesterday for family commitments but we got another two. Our bowling was not good enough to stop them so we have to learn from that.”
