A trip to India in his prime years was what inspired Darshan Kapadia to take up the sport of Cricket.

Kapadia wants to follow in the footsteps of his little brother Vaibhav Kapadia who was also part of the national squad.

“In 2016 he got selected into the Fiji under 19 squad to play into the world cup so that motivated me more to become a part of cricket and play it and have fun”

An engineer by profession, Kapadia was laid off from Fiji Airways due to COVID 19 so he has turned his focus into making the final team.

 

“Ive always wanted to be a part of it cause my brothers been a part of it so I just felt like I need to try and make it to that level and being selected in the squad is a huge honor to me”
