The Fiji Under-19 cricket side is stepping up its preparations for the ICC Cricket Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh next year.
Fiji assistant coach, Graeme Stewart says he is impressed with the player’s commitment in training on the pitch as well as in the gym since he joined the team camp last month.
“They look in fantastic shape. Henry (Elder) the fitness coach is doing a great job and all the officials have been doing some fantastic work in the background. They’ve done a good job just by qualifying for the World Cup so it will be a great honor to help them win a game.”
Plans are in place for the national side to undertake a short tour of Australia prior to competing in the World Cup.
Fiji is grouped in a tough pool with England, West Indies and Zimbabwe in the ICC Cricket Under-19 World Cup, which will be held in Bangladesh from January 22nd to February 14th next year.
