The inaugural Under 17 Pasifika Cricket Tri-Series was launched last night at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.
The tournament features hosts Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu.
Cricket Fiji High Performance manager Joe Rika says the tournament is a great development tool for young players in the region.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for the young players in our region to test themselves against the best. Even though PNG is not here we needed to make sure there is a pathway for our junior players not only for Fiji but for Tonga and Vanuatu as well. We hope to see the best that these young players have to offer.”
The Pasifika Tri-Series will be held over 1 week at Albert Park in Suva and gets underway on Tuesday.
