“Afazal was sick but he is recovering quite well so he should be back for us. Vilikesa is still in doubt, still struggling so we are not sure. But, the spirit in camp is quite good, the boys are all excited for the semi-final against New Zealand.”

Afazal and Seninawanawa are expected to be in the starting 11 in tomorrow night’s clash.

The match will kick off at 7 at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva.
