Top Fijian batsman Makutu Seru has been selected into the Moorabbin West Cricket club in Melbourne.
Moorabbin West has recruited Fiji’s star batsman Seru to bolster their chances of winning a trophy, and to broaden the young Fijian player’s experience.
An agreement between Cricket Fiji and Moorabbin club states that Fijian players that have been selected can be available to represent their country when needed.
Cricket Fiji Chief Executive Setoki Galuvakadua says local players will now have the opportunity to progress through the sport.
“An agreement we had with the club is that players that are contracted by them can be released to represent Fiji if needed and with the performance shown by Seru, the club wants to recruit more local players.”
Meanwhile, Cricket Fiji was given the green light by the International Cricket Council to host ICC World Cup T20 Qualifier.
The event is scheduled to be held at the Albert Park in Suva from the 25th-30th of August.
