Cricket Fiji still says they need more game time on professional pitches to better their game.
Coach, Shane Jurgensen says bowling is quite different on the pitches we have here in Fiji and on those that they play on overseas.
“The pitches that we have here in Fiji are of concrete base with artificial grass. Now the difference is when the Cricket ball is hard, the pitch is hard. So when the ball hits the ground off the fast bowler, there is a strong impact off the pitch which is quite quick.”
Meanwhile Cricket Fiji received $65,000 from the Fiji National Sports Commission to prepare for the Cricket League Six in England.
Fiji will play six (Fifty Overs) matches at the tournament which will be held in September.
