While all the attention has been on the Flying Fijians’ World Cup progress in England, the national cricket side will also be in action in Essex, London from today.
The Joe Rika-led side will take on Guernsey in its opening match in the World Cricket League Division Six tournament tonight.
This will be Fiji’s maiden appearance in Division Six, while Guernsey featured in the competition last year, finishing in 5th place.
Fiji is also pooled with Suriname and Botswana.
The Fiji-Guernsey match will be played in 50 overs and begins at 9:30pm (Fiji Time).
The two top teams from this division will progress to the Division 5 competition next year.
