The Fijian National Sports Commission donated $65,000 to Cricket Fiji yesterday.

This is in preparation for the 2015 ICC World Cricket League division six in Essex, England in September.

Commission chairman Peter Mazey said the assistance was to assist the team with their preparation.

“We’ve been talking about development all this time and we grateful cricket is one of those sports who is creating pathways for our youths.”

Head coach Shane Jurgensen acknowledges the support.

“We want to thank the FNSC for giving the extra assistance. This will definitely lift our preparation to another level.

“We will be heading to England two weeks prior to the games so that the players can acclimatise to the weather and the time difference.”

Meanwhile, after series of training the 18-member squad will be reduced to 14 on August 5.
